Adapting to the new PeopleSoft Delivery Model

By now, most of you have heard that PeopleSoft change the way maintenance and enhancements are delivered with version 9.2 applications.  If you would like to find out more about the process and the life-cycle tools, lots of information can be found on the PeopleSoft Update Manager Home Page on My Oracle Support (Doc ID 1464619.1).  You can find details on how to set up the environment, what has changed, hardware and software pre-reqs and much, much more.  What is missing, is how the customer can get the most out of the process.

PeopleSoft has published a new white paper called Adapting to PeopleSoft Continuous Delivery.  In the paper it describes the benefits of the new life-cycle process and what organizations can do to benefit the most from the change.  Of course you can find the document on the PeopleSoft Information Portal, www.peoplesoftinfo.com,  or just click on the link above.  When you think about how big of a change this is, it's worth a read.

 Look for this to be a hot topic at this years Oracle Open World 2014 and beyond.

PeopleSoft Update Manager

Oracle and the PeopleSoft team have changed the way all maintenance and functionality is being delivered starting in PeopleSoft 9.2  using the new PeopleSoft Update Manager (PUM).

PUM transforms the way customers manage their PeopleSoft applications.  Customers have the ability to determine what maintenance to apply, when to apply it, and at any point can create a single change package to get current.  The cost savings and strategic benefits this enables are significant.

While PUM delivers transformative value to customers and feedback from customers has been very positive, it represents a change in approach from how PeopleSoft has historically delivered maintenance.  To avoid disruptive impact to upgrade and implementation plans, it is critical to understand and plan for the hardware, software, and procedural change that PUM represents.

If you are planning or executing a PeopleSoft 9.2 upgrade or implementation, it is important that you include PUM in your plans.  Use the following resources:
  1. The PUM Home Page.  Single site that contains all PUM related content, training, and image schedules, as well as links to all information mentioned below.
  2. PUM Video Feature Overview:  If you don’t know what PUM is, start here. 
  3. PUM Hardware and Software Requirements: See the Quick Start Guide (#9) and Using VirtualBox Images (#10) on the PUM Home Page.   These two documents outline the hardware and software requirements for PUM. 
  4. PUM Instructions and Best Practices: See all other documents and trainings on the PUM Home Page.
There are many additional documents available that provide training and detailed install and usage instructions.  We strongly recommend reviewing the PUM Best Practices and Maintenance Strategy document (#6) for guidance on the procedural implications of PUM.

If you have any questions or need assistance please contact Oracle Support.
