PeopleSoft 2022 Roadmap

By now, you’ve likely heard the news of Oracle extending support for PeopleSoft through 2033. It’s an exciting announcement that reassures Oracle’s commitment to PeopleSoft. 

The extension of a rolling 10 years of support comes with another decade of updates, innovations, and of course, Premium Support for the application. (Lifetime Support Policy).

Since 2013, product developments have moved to follow a Continuous Innovation Model. This allows customers running PeopleSoft version 9.2 to receive continuous updates to stay current with PeopleSoft, rather than an entire application upgrade.  

Continuous Innovation provides many advantages. The most apparent is avoiding the disruptions that come with major upgrades, but licensees also gain flexibility over implementations, updates are cumulative, and it even includes Premium Support. However, capitalizing on these benefits requires one important part, the enterprise must be running PeopleSoft 9.2.

Cloud Manager 13

One thing is for certain in the 2022 PeopleSoft Roadmap, the incentives for deploying applications on the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure are strong.  

The push for agile deployments to OCI is shown in the latest Cloud Manager 13. The release includes cost-saving features like Policy Manager, which lets customers set automated policies to control what happens with their PeopleSoft environments in OCI.  

Using Cloud Manager and Policy Manager, clients can save money with automated shut-down schedules when instances are not in use. i.e. After hours, weekends, etc. The features also introduce Machine Learning capabilities for auto-scaling. 

Customers must deploy PeopleSoft applications on OCI to take advantage of the cost-saving benefits of Cloud Manager.
