PeopleTools 8.57 is Available on the Oracle Cloud

David Bain
Sr. Director PeopleTools Product Management

We are pleased to announce that PeopleTools 8.57 is generally available for install and upgrade on the Oracle Cloud.  As we announced earlier, PeopleTools 8.57 will initially be available only on the Oracle Cloud.  We plan to make PeopleTools 8.57 available for on-premises downloads with the 8.57.04 CPU patch in January 2019.  

There are many new exciting features in PeopleTools 8.57 including:

  • The ability for end-users to set up conditions in analytics that if met will notify the user
  • Improvements to the way Related Content and Analytics are displayed
  • Add custom fields to Fluid pages with minimum life-cycle impact
  • More capabilities for end user personalization
  • Improved search that supports multi-facet selections
  • Easier than ever to brand the application with your corporate colors and graphics
  • Fluid page preview in AppDesigner and improved UI properties interface
  • End-to-end command-line support for life-cycle management processes
  • And much more!

You’ll want to get all the details and learn about the new features in 8.57.  A great place to start is the PeopleTools 8.57 Highlights Video  posted on the PeopleSoft YouTube channel.  The highlights video gives you a overview of the new features and shows how to use them.

There is plenty more information about the release available today.  Here are some links to some of the other places you can go to learn more about 8.57:

In addition to releasing PeopleTools 8.57, version 7 of PeopleSoft Cloud Manager is also being released today.  CM 7 is similar in functionality to CM 6 with additional support for PeopleTools 8.57.  If you currently use a version of Cloud Manager you must upgrade to version 7 in order to install PT 8.57. 

There are a lot of questions about how to get started using PeopleTools 8.57 and Cloud Manager 7.  Documentation and installation instructions are available on the Cloud Manager Home Page.

More information will be published over the next couple of weeks to help you get started with 8.57 on the cloud.  Additional information will include blogs to help with details of the installation, an video that shows the complete process from creating a free trial account to running PT8.57, and a detailed Spotlight Video that describes configuring OCI and Cloud Manager 7.

PeopleTools 8.57 is a significant milestone for Oracle, making it easier than ever for customers to use, maintain and run PeopleSoft Applications.

    This is exciting news. Just today, I was speaking to a customer about de-customizing their implementation to better support OUM updates and 8.57 will make it easier for customers to do that. The value proposition of OCI is further enhanced with this Tools 8.57 release because OCI is not just about Infrastructure, it's the combined value of Cloud Manager, Tools 8.57 and it's lifecycle management capabilities and DBaaS automation that makes it an unbeatable combination.

    Looking forward for more documents on installing and configuring PT 8.57 on cloud as well as on-premise. Must say Oracle has delivered and enhanced much powerful peopletools with this version.
    Happy to learn more on PeopleSoft.

    Looks like time to upgrade again. And also good time to use Oracle Cloud manager now after we migrated to OCI cloud. Some features look pretty good specially in Fluid and Analytics area.
