PeopleTools CPU analysis and supported versions of PeopleTools (update)

Questions often arise on the PeopleTools versions for which Critical Patch Updates have been published, or if a particular PeopleTools version is supported. 

The attached page shows the patch number for PeopleTools versions associated with a particular CPU publication. This information will help you decide which CPU to apply and when to consider upgrading to a more current release.

The link in "CPU Date" goes to the landing page for CPU advisories, the link in the individual date, e.g. Apr-10, goes to the advisory for that date.

The page also shows the CVE's addressed in the CPU, a synopsis of the issue and the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) value.

To find more details on any CVE, simply replace the CVE number in the sample URL below.

All the details in this page are available on My Oracle Support and public sites.

The RED column indicates the last patch for a PeopleTools version and effectively the last support date for that version.

Extended Support for PeopleSoft Interaction Hub Ending--Time to Upgrade Soon!

Extended support for the PeopleSoft Interaction Hub will be ending in October 2014.  Sustaining support will still be available, but if you are an Interaction Hub (aka Portal) customer, you should consider upgrading to the latest release before that time.  The 9.1/Revision 3 release will be available soon after PeopleTools 8.54 is released, so customers considering an upgrade may wish to move to Revision 3 when it becomes available.

See this document for general information on Oracle/PeopleSoft's Lifetime support program.

PeopleSoft Interaction Hub Release Value Proposition for Revision 3

We've just published the Release Value Proposition for the PeopleSoft Interaction Hub 9.1/Revision 3.  The RVP provides an overview of the new features and enhancements planned for the upcoming release, which is aligned with PeopleTools 8.54 . The release value proposition is intended to help you assess the business benefits of upgrading to the latest release and to plan your IT projects and investments.

The highlights of the RVP cover the following subjects in the upcoming release:

  • Branding
  • PeopleSoft Fluid User Interface updates
  • Interaction hub cluster setup improvements
  • Simplified content creation and publication
  • WCAG 2.0 adoption

Look for the availability of this release in the near future.

New Interaction Hub Statement of Direction Published

The latest PeopleSoft Interaction Hub Statement of Direction is now available on My Oracle Support.  We think this subject will be particularly interesting to customers given the impending release of the PeopleSoft Fluid User Experience and all that offers.  The Statement of Direction describes how we see the Interaction Hub being used with the new user experience and the Hub's continued place in a PeopleSoft environment.  This paper also discusses subjects like branding, content management, easier design/deployment, and the optional restricted use license.
