Two new release value propositions are now available: one covers PeopleTools 8.50, another covers Enterprise Portal 9.1. Both documents provide an overview of the value proposition for the enhancements that are planned for PeopleTools 8.50 and Enterprise Portal 9,1. Both are intended to help you assess the business benefits of these products and to plan your information technology (IT) projects and investments.
Here is synopsis of the PeopleTools RVP:
The PeopleTools 8.50 release continues Oracle’s commitment to protect and extend the value of your PeopleSoft implementation, provide additional technology options and enhancements that reduce ongoing operating costs, as well as improve the end user’s experience.
Key areas of investment include:
• Extending the PeopleSoft service-enabled architecture.
• Improving the user experience.
• Lowering your total cost of ownership.
The value of PeopleTools 8.50 is grounded in our normal process of including accumulated bug fixes as well as enhancements based upon customer feedback. As a result, we added features that will simplify the integration of your heterogeneous environments, run your business more efficiently, improve the end user’s experience, and increase cost effectiveness. Many of the enhancements of this release involve improving the end user’s productivity through improved usability enhancements, page performance, and integrated related content.
In sum, PeopleTools 8.50 continues to deliver unparalleled customer choice that ensures support of the latest technical innovation with the industry’s lowest cost of ownership and improved user satisfaction.
Key areas and features of PeopleTools 8.50 are:

And here is a synopsis of the Portal RVP:
The PeopleSoft Enterprise Portal 9.1 release continues our strategy that began with release 8.8: to provide rich functionality beyond a simple portal framework. PeopleSoft Enterprise Portal offers a rich set of functional Web 2.0 features, which distinguishes it from conventional framework portals. In addition to new framework improvements and benefits accrued from PeopleTools 8.50, we have added functional features to the PeopleSoft Enterprise Portal—especially in Collaborative Workspaces—that will enable you to introduce Web 2.0 concepts and practices into your enterprise with a resulting improvement in user effectiveness, efficiency, and profitability.
