Deploying Peoplesoft on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

realize instant savings & performance without the pain of a big-bang upgrade






Think tanks like Gartner and Forrester have advised CIO’s they need a cloud strategy for more than a decade.  Sure, this works for ancillary applications like sales and service, however core ERP systems are particularly challenging.  In fact, most customers are still running their aging systems on premise because moving Peoplesoft to the cloud hasn’t been an effective and beneficial alternative due to extensive migration costs and labor intensive heavy lifting.

With the advent of new PeopleSoft Cloud Manager you can now lift and shift your customized production and Non-Production PeopleSoft environments that you’ve invested years into Oracle’s Infrastructure as a service and Platform as a service seamlessly.

With the new PeopleSoft Cloud Manager, users would be able to provision and manage PeopleSoft environments on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). This automated tool can help with migration to OCI, On-Demand Self service deployment of new environments, Publish application templates and customize your application deployment using custom topology to orchestrate the entire deployment process  and manage the life cycle of PeopleSoft by downloading PeopleSoft updates and subscribing automatically to update release channels.

PeopleSoft customers now can realize operational cost savings, use Lift and shift Automation to migrate to OCI, Increase agility and scalability and benefit from improved time to market by rapidly provisioning PeopleSoft environments by delivering “PeopleSoft as a Service”.

Organizations are already reaping the benefits of the cloud.  When you make  the move to the cloud, your company will also be able to take advantage of the above benefits – increasing your overall efficiency, performance, and adhere to compliance.

As the name implies, the OCI infrastructure is an entirely new cloud infrastructure dedicated and isolated for your PeopleSoft and boundary application systems with many customization options to suit your organizations needs.  With OCI, you will have the freedom to run your own version without upgrading;  the nimbleness of cloud provisioning; and the potential to fractionalize licenses during non-peak times, reducing license and support costs.

The Challenges

with running Peoplesoft on the public cloud.

Security Concerns

With the public cloud you have less control over the transmission and storage of your data and Peoplesoft installation.  The cloud vendor defines the architecture and co-locates you with other tenants.

Availability Concerns

With any public cloud, you are sharing your infrastructure with anyone, even noisy neighbors like retail companies on black friday.  Poor performance coupled with latency in cloud services can have a devastating impact to your Peoplesoft users.

Expensive Re-implementations

Vendors, like Workday and Oracle, pushing hard for their hosted software-as-a-service apps in the cloud.  Moving to these applications will require a massive effort on your part to re-implment and force your business to change its processes.

Time Consuming Upgrades

Most of the cloud’s platform-as-a-service offerings won’t work with technology stack embedded within your old version of Peoplesoft.  To take advantage of public cloud PAAS, you’ll need to upgrade… again.

The Benefits

of moving to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

Agility and Nimbleness

You can keep up with the fast pace of business innovation without the encumbrance of managing, updating, replacing your own physical infrastructure.

Dedicated Hardware

You’ll have the piece of mind that your business critical Peoplesoft installation will be running on your own hardware with your data on your own storage.

Simplified Maintenance / Automation

You’ll be able to rapidly provision and clone new infrastructure from a familiar web interface without having to worry about physical interoperability.

Reduced License Costs

On premise servers are sized for peak loads.  With BMCS, you will be able to take advantage of reduced license and support costs during periods you don’t need peak capacity.
