PeopleSoft Selective Adoption

Marc Weintraub
Vice President, Product Strategy

If you are
plugged into the PeopleSoft social media channels like our Facebook
, Twitter feed, and Linkedin
development group
or if you tuned into the Quest Users Group PeopleSoft Townhall
featuring Paco
(Oracle’s Senior Vice President and General Manager of PeopleSoft
Development), you likely heard us talking about “PeopleSoft Selective Adoption.” Maybe you are wondering what exactly that is;
that’s where I come in. For some time
now the PeopleSoft product team has been talking about how, starting with
PeopleSoft 9.2, we are delivering updates on a continuous basis with new
capabilities planned for delivery 2 – 3 times a year. But it’s not about us and what we are doing;
it is about you – the customer. “PeopleSoft
Selective Adoption” is the terminology we are using to convey what this new age
of PeopleSoft delivery means to our customers. As a PeopleSoft customer on PeopleSoft 9.2, “PeopleSoft Selective
Adoption” means:

  • You get new capabilities without the need to upgrade ever
  • You take only the changes you want, when you want.
  • You don’t need to be current on maintenance to take

Your need to
avoid costly and disruptive upgrades in the future and your desire to selectively
adopt our continued PeopleSoft innovations – on your terms, drove us to this
new model. This is possible due to new
tools including PeopleSoft
Update Manager
(PUM) and new processes we have put in place. To truly maximize the benefits of “PeopleSoft
Selective Adoption” your organization will need to change. Change how the line of business and IT work
together to prioritize business needs, how it looks at maintenance planning,
and how it executes the delivery of new PeopleSoft functionality. The PeopleSoft team has begun working with
our customers to capture best practices, lessons learned, and guidance on how
to best take advantage of “PeopleSoft Selective Adoption” and has published a white
on this topic.

As always,
