If you have not heard the news (http://www.oracle.com/us/corporate/press/1920557), Oracle has now officially released PS 9.2 for HCM, Finance and Supply Chain. At BTRG, we have been a testing partner of Oracle’s 9.2 product for several months. Our folks have had the privilege of testing applications across HR, Finance and Supply Chain before the general release, so our excitement is a little higher than normal.
In our opinion, this product release takes a huge step in the right direction. Our team loved the new interface, the WorkCenters, new dashboards, and thought that the user interface is a huge improvement. You can expect to see a lot more articles from our team on some of the new key features in the upcoming weeks. Everyone has a personal favorite!
As a consulting partner for PeopleSoft and Oracle since the early 90’s, we have seen many new versions, new modules, and new technologies. Version 9.1 was a great jump, and we have no doubt our clients are going to be thrilled with the functionality in 9.2.
I am excited to follow the adoption rate with current and new clients. This version of PS is being released into a very different market than 9.1. PeopleSoft has new competition in Workday, faces new technology models in SaaS and Cloud computing, and even must be evaluated against Oracle’s internal offerings of Fusion. It should be exciting!
