Announcing the General Availability of PeopleSoft In-Memory Project Discovery – The Key to Tapping the Potential of Unstructured Data

A Guest Post by Mark Rosenberg (pictured left), Oracle Senior Director, PeopleSoft Projects (ESA) and Asset Lifecycle Management (ALM)

We recently launched a new analytical application focused on enabling project-driven organizations to answer complex questions that until now were all but impossible to address even with the latest business intelligence tools and technologies.

The new application, called PeopleSoft In-Memory Project Discovery, is a true example of an Oracle Engineered System in that we have architected a business solution that takes advantage of the latest Oracle Middleware and Hardware to accomplish something that would otherwise be too complex, expensive, and risky for almost any other organization to attempt to build on its own.

All too often, outdated planning processes and disconnected planning systems are simply not adequate. Without the right systems in place, planners can’t get a complete view of activities, let alone analyze them in real time to help ensure informed decision making. The result: their organizations get left behind.
