PeopleSoft - Catching Its Second Wind From The Internet Part 1: About PeopleSoft
PeopleSoft, once a high flyer owing to its congenial culture and slick ERP product, has invested two years and over a half billion dollars to develop a number

david duffield  Founded in 1987 by David Duffield and with headquarters in Pleasanton, CA, PeopleSoft is the third-ranked applications vendor with $1.74 billion in revenue in 2000 (approximately 8.5% of the global ERP market), behind SAP and Oracle.
