Reinforcing its commitment to help customers maximize the value of Oracle’s PeopleSoft applications, Oracle today announced a new release of Oracle’s PeopleSoft PeopleTools.
PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.52 includes valuable enhancements to the user interface, search functionality and reporting capabilities designed to improve end user productivity and reduce the total cost of ownership for PeopleSoft customers.
As part of the upgrade, all versions of PeopleSoft are now fully supported on the iPad, enabling customers to access any version of PeopleSoft applications anywhere and at any time through the intuitive iPad user interface.

Functionality Updates Drive User Adoption and Productivity

Oracle’s PeopleSoft PeopleTools is a comprehensive development toolset that enables application developers to build and customize PeopleSoft applications quickly and easily.
Enhancements within PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.52 include:
Intuitive keyword search: PeopleSoft Application Search simplifies the navigation of application content, business objects and business processes. This version of PeopleTools provides simple, familiar searching capabilities, similar to a common search engine, enabling users to quickly and easily find critical information. In order to provide even greater levels of productivity, the new PeopleTools search includes an integrated related-action framework that enables users to take contextual actions directly from the search results.
Mobile access on the iPad: Certification for the iPad gives PeopleSoft users an intuitive and safe platform with functionality targeted to optimize their dynamic business needs. Oracle is the only enterprise resource planning (ERP) vendor that offers a comprehensive enterprise suite on the iPad.
Interactive user interface: Updated, interactive pagelets and inter-pagelet communication features in Workcenters and Dashboards enable the configuration and deployment of functionally rich, highly usable applications.
Integrated reporting functionality: Data retrieval and reporting enhancements for Oracle BI Publisher, PeopleSoft Query, Pivot Grids, Oracle Essbase and nVision improve user productivity.
The release of PeopleTools 8.52 is the latest update Oracle has delivered to extend the value of PeopleSoft applications between major releases. This new release of PeopleTools powers Oracle’s recently introduced Oracle’s PeopleSoft HCM 9.1 Feature Pack 2, which delivered key updates to user experience, navigation and search.
