Upgrading to 9.2 - Info You Can Use (part 2 - Get Hands On Experience)

Our guest blogger, Rebekah Jackson, continues with a series of helpful hints on planning your upgrade to PeopleSoft 9.2.

Hands-On Experience With a an Easy to Install Demo Image

Once you
have identified the features you believe can add value (see part 1 of this series here), we recommend that you
use our Demo Images to quickly create a PeopleSoft environment where you can
try out the new features. The Demo
Images are virtual machines that run in VirtualBox.   They contain a fully functioning PeopleSoft environment, including the database, PeopleTools, and the application.  These images can be loaded onto nearly any sized machine that meets the specs outlined in the documentation, including a powerful desktop machine.     The image allows you to very quickly deploy a fully functioning PeopleSoft instance that you
can use to explore new features and functions or run a conference room pilot.

To take
advantage these Demo Images:

  1. Go to the Demo
    Images Home Page (Doc id 1552548.1)
    on My Oracle Support.
  2. Use the " Demo Image Quick Start Guide" and additional documentation links on that page to download and install your desired Demo Image.
  3. When installed, use the Demo Image to explore the desired
    features and capabilities.

Important Notes:

- It is not required to use the Demo Images to evaluate
features and functions – any 9.2 instance will support this. We recommend use of the Demo Images because
the setup and configuration is dramatically faster than doing a traditional
PeopleSoft install.

- For those looking to explore new features and
capabilities on PeopleSoft 9.1 releases, we have provided virtual machine
images using the Oracle Virtual Machine technology. Details and links are available in Oracle’s
PeopleSoft Virtualization Products page (Doc id 1538142.1)
