Oracle Makes Available PeopleSoft HCM 9.1 On Demand Standard Edition

Oracle (News - Alert) has announced the availability of its PeopleSoft Human Capital Management (HCM) 9.1 On Demand Standard Edition, saying that it’ll enable customers to manage their long-term investment in enterprise-wide business applications.

Calling PeopleSoft HCM On Demand Standard Edition a configurable, low cost hosted solution, company officials said that it enables rapid deployment of PeopleSoft HCM 9.1 solution.

“This new offering provides HR managers and end users with a high quality solution that doesn’t require renting a one-size-fits-all service for perpetuity with no exit strategy,” said Paco Aubrejuan, group vice president of PeopleSoft at Oracle.

Thanks to this offering, customers can now take full advantage of the rich business functionality that is inherent to PeopleSoft HCM. They can also delegate all application management responsibility, such as future upgrades and product updates, to Oracle technology experts.

Company officials said that PeopleSoft HCM On Demand Standard Edition will be hosted out of one of Oracle's data centers.      

PeopleSoft HCM On Demand Standard Edition offers customers a high standard of security access, production environment, and disaster recovery processes; the ability to retain a high degree of choice to transition between different deployment and service models at any point in the application ownership lifecycle.

Additional benefits include: complete end-to-end management of all technical and functional aspects of their PeopleSoft deployment; automatic, scheduled updates of the latest releases of PeopleSoft HCM and PeopleTools. Company officials said that customers will have access to all new major releases and also the latest maintenance packs, bundles, and feature packs without any additional costs.

PeopleSoft HCM On Demand Standard Edition is based on configurability options rather than customizations, eliminating the need for additional code to develop or maintain.

Moreover, Oracle's PeopleSoft HCM On Demand offers native integrations between PeopleSoft HCM and a broad set of other PeopleSoft applications that can be hosted in On Demand or on-premise.

“With the new Oracle's PeopleSoft HCM On Demand Standard Edition, we’re expanding our portfolio of cloud deployment options to give customers additional choice and best possible value for their money,” said Marc Schwarz, senior vice president for Oracle On Demand.

Additionally, the company also introduced Oracle CRM On Demand Release 19 Innovation Pack.
