PeopleSoft Unveils First Tools For Total Ownership Experience Program

Automating installation, configuration, performance-tuning, and software updates is focus of the effort.

The focus this week at the PeopleSoft Connect conference will the delivery of its "total ownership experience," and details surrounding the finalization of its integration of J.D. Edwards & Co.

When PeopleSoft first touted its total ownership experience initiative--a companywide effort to lower apps costs by involving fewer people at every stage, from installation to configuration to maintenance and upgrades--it said it was dedicating 500 developers and hundreds of millions of dollars to the project. This week, the first fruits of that effort will be four tools to automate installation, configuration, performance tuning, and software updates.

PeopleSoft also is adding integration packs for five business processes: payroll, program management, source to settle, field service, and sales-order management.

PeopleSoft will provide details of its delivery of the new EnterpriseOne solution 8.9 for midsize companies, with more than 400 enhancements to the previous J.D. Edwards offering, sys Rick Bergquist, chief technology officer.

The upgrade meets commitments made by J.D. Edwards to its customers prior to its acquisition by PeopleSoft, and also provides features such as supply-chain and asset management, as well as adding PeopleSoft functionality, he says.

"We think we have executed very well, hitting right in the ballpark of what J.D. Edwards had promised," Bergquist says. "The integration was designed by the J.D. Edwards team, so it's right in line with their customers' experience."
