oracle peoplesoft shares  Oracle and PeopleSoft Are to Fuse, Competitors Ruse--Leaving Customers (Somewhat) Bemused Observation of Recent Events Courtroom drama, emotions, and personal recriminations have emerged from the flurry of typically friendly, if not civil, acquisitions in the IT world. While the business application software space began seeing consolidations as early as the 1990s with the disappearance of once prominent names like Dun & Bradstreet Software or ASK Group , an onslaught of mergers emerged in the early

Welcome to the CRM Mid-Market Abyss-PeopleSoft


As the market shifts from sophisticated enterprise CRM implementations to the more competitive and overcrowded mid-market-large enterprise vendors tend to step on mid-market vendor's toes. The real concern is to determine whether the mid-market cultural and functional differences are well understood and acted upon or do the large players simply offer a smaller mockup of their existing enterprise solutions. This article, which evaluates the PeopleSoft mid-market CRM solution, is the first of a series of research articles that focus on the mid-market applications provided by large CRM vendors.

Amongst them PeopleSoft is presenting an interesting approach based on what the SMB market requires. The method is not new and is already being used by other vendors to shorten implementation time.

Other significant elements in the PeopleSoft strategy for mid-market are its fixed costs and firm Read More

Oracle Further Orchestrates Its SOA Forays Part Six: Weaknesses and User Recommendations


Time will tell whether Oracle's vocal endorsement of open technologies such as J2EE and BPEL will allow customers to readily adopt solutions that fit their needs and that quickly integrate with their existing infrastructure.

Its database is a major platform within the SAP and PeopleSoft install base and its back-office applications are also well respected in certain vertical markets.

Oracle - How to Disappoint Analysts by Doubling Profits


In September Oracle Corporation, the largest database provider and one of the largest providers of software applications for e-business, announced record results for Q1 of its fiscal year 2001. Why weren’t analysts more enthusiastic about the 42% growth of the applications part of its business?

Further, since 11i also requires the latest version of Oracle's database product, 8i, companies have to upgrade their databases first. However, since 8i is also a relatively new product, many customers and prospects may be reticent to be 'guinea pigs' for either product. On the other hand, owing to Oracle's announcement that support for its earlier releases of Read More

Deltek's Second Bite at the IPO Cherry (Part I)


In the last decade or so of covering the enterprise applications market, I've witnessed so many products and vendors disappearing and reappearing under a different name, ownership, etc., but it is for the first time now, at the end of 2007 that I saw basically the same vendor go public for the second time (and in a 10 year timespan). Namely, Deltek (evaluate its flagship product), the leading

Enterprise Application Alternatives: What You Should Be Asking Oracle and SAP


Despite challenges, both SAP and Oracle will be formidable forces in the hosting space, because of their intimate application knowledge, their infrastructure, organizational stability, and vast capital. However, SMEs should approach this decision with due diligence.

PeopleSoft Building Muscles To Overcome The Rough Patch Part 3: Target Markets, Alliances, & Competition


In PeopleSoft’s case, the fact remains that it is still the best-attuned offering (in terms of pricing, vertical extensions, customizability, professional service approach, etc.) to the needs of large, service-oriented enterprises, or for ‘greenfield’ sites. However, to put things in the right perspective, one should bear in mind that PeopleSoft’s license revenue in 2001 was still less than the corresponding revenue in 1998, back when the company was only a HRMS/ERP player.

This mind-boggling competition may remind the customers of the fact that PeopleSoft does not necessarily deliver the best value to everybody across the board. PeopleSoft 8, achieved through a radical rewrite of over 14,000 PeopleSoft 7.5 enterprise suite panels and/or program sessions and through acquisition of the Vantive CRM product, is still a relatively immature product, with an awful amount of work in progress, as can be inferred by the above Read More

'Collaborative Commerce': ERP, CRM, e-Proc, and SCM Unite! A Series Study: PeopleSoft


PeopleSoft has risen from its relatively humble origins in the Human Resource Management Systems (HRMS) arena, its sole focus as it begun life in 1987. Over the course of a decade or so, it added Supply Chain Management and Financials to its list of application offerings. In the last few years, in the face of slowing cash flows from its traditional strongholds, it has gone full bore toward Internet-based enterprise-wide - even cross-enterprise - solutions, trying to enter the game and be competitive with other top tier ERP-turned Collaborative Commerce vendors. Showing fiscal growth and, very-recently, notably-improved market acceptance, Peoplesoft may be the enterprise software turnaround story of the last decade.

The Oracle/PeopleSoft Reality Check


While customers may be bemused if not concerned about the Oracle/PeopleSoft merger, they are from a traditionally risk-adverse market. Despite the lush deals offered by the competition, realistically, the only way Oracle will lose customers is through self-inflicted wounds.

In other words, a major exodus of customers, however unlikely, will only come from Oracle's own negligence or arrogance.

PeopleSoft Supply Chain Is Music To Mid Market Ears


PeopleSoft has once again proven the naysayers wrong about its ability to sell supply chain management. Its Accelerated Supply Chain Management offering bundles core e-business functionality into a scaled down package for the mid market, a segment that not even SCM market leader i2 has conquered.
