Paco on Continuing Investment in PeopleSoft November 8, 2016Posted by Duncan in PeopleTools.
There’s a great episode of Marc Weintraub’s PeopleSoft Talk interview series, featuring a 30 minute discussion with Paco Aubrejuan. There’ll be some great points for everyone to take away from it, however here are my highlights:
On the current Support End date of December 2027:
There’s no plan on ending support for PeopleSoft then, it’s actually not that important a date. It happens to be the date right now that our lifetime support goes to … that probably won’t be the case and as we get closer to that date the plan is to move those dates out.
On Continued Investment:
For me investment and support are one and the same. It’s hard to support applications without continuing to enhance them as well. We’re planning to support and enhance them through that date.
On Fluid Adoption:
We have 2-300 customers who are live on it, and many of whom aren’t live with just a few applications but with Fluid across the board. We’ve got to that hockey stick period in terms of adoption where the majority of our customers who are doing projects or upgrades are deploying Fluid.
On replacing SES with Elasticsearch:
“it’s easier, cheaper, faster, better for customers to run Elasticsearch versus SES”
plus lots more on Cloud, Fluid Approvals and Selective Adoption. It’s well worth a watch:
