PeopleSoft Modernization and Benchmarking on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

Bonnie Donovan
Principal Product Manager

Processing payroll is challenging because it has the highest visibility if things go wrong. Time and Labor has volatile cycles that demand out-of-cycle testing to assure success. Human Capital Management is a top line expense that interfaces with all enterprise business systems. Creating paychecks has hundreds of variables beyond managing standard deductions, such as raises, new hires, benefits enrollments, leaves of absence, holidays, bargaining units (unions) etc. Despite these challenges, employees need to be paid on a regular cadence. Many organizations rely on PeopleSoft to help with these challenges.

In the past decade, there have been industry-wide initiatives within IT organizations moving traditional commodity infrastructure workloads from data centers to cloud service providers. One of the challenges customers face when adopting cloud technologies is quality assurance. Adopters face many choices for sizing their core business technologies and applications across software, platform, and infrastructure cloud services. They must be assured the cloud service provides performance, stability, agility, and operability at a value for their investment.

Oracle has decades of experience provisioning and running these Oracle products like PeopleSoft. Our hardware and software choices, staff expertise, and long-honed IT processes are all best-of-breed for managing Oracle workloads. Our cloud is designed with enterprise applications in mind. This makes Oracle Cloud Infrastructure the best place to run PeopleSoft.

Oracle Cloud Jump Start allows users to try pre-configured solutions running on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, for free. Within minutes, a Demo Lab is launched enabling users to start learning about these innovative solutions from Oracle’s consulting and technology partners. Users can register with the partner and try any Jump Start Lab for a few hours - for free. One of the great benefits of Jump Start is that customers become familiar with the level of effort and capacity needed to deploy application environments on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. They can envision the build out of development and test environments rapidly to forecast production needs. In Mythics' Demo Lab, you can see how modern and scalable infrastructure improves PeopleSoft performance with demanding variable loads.

The Mythics Jump Start Demo Lab provides hands-on experience building, running, and testing a freshly installed PeopleSoft 9.2 HCM instance. The Demo Lab consists of (2) two instances deployed in some of the smallest (and cheapest) Virtual Machine sizes available in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. The Jump Start provides an User Guide that contains a test script for processing a full payroll cycle against demo data. During the Jump Start user has the opportunity to run against both instances. Your instance is monitored by Oracle Management Cloud (OMC) to provide performance analytics to assist with sizing user testing.

The Mythics Jump Start Demo Labs showcases the value-added resources of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Mythics uses Terraforms to showcase automation and orchestration for all of our virtual and bare metal deployments. Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) makes it easy to spin up environments and scale them up and out with a snap of a finger. Spin up environments in a matter of minutes and hours, and not days and weeks.
