News Facts

To help customers manage their long-term investment in enterprise-wide business applications, Oracle announces the general availability of Oracle’s PeopleSoft Human Capital Management (HCM) 9.1 On Demand Standard Edition.
PeopleSoft HCM On Demand Standard Edition is a configurable, low cost hosted solution which enables rapid deployment of the industry leading PeopleSoft HCM 9.1 solution.
This offering enables customers to take full advantage of the rich business functionality that is inherent to PeopleSoft HCM, while delegating all application management responsibility, such as future upgrades and product updates, to Oracle technology experts. Customers can focus on running their business while Oracle experts make sure that the HCM software is well maintained and provides them with the latest HCM functionality.
PeopleSoft HCM On Demand Standard Edition will be hosted out of one of Oracle’s data centers that are hardened with embassy-grade security and fault-tolerant redundancy.
PeopleSoft HCM On Demand Standard Edition has a convenient and predictable monthly fee that is scalable by number of employees, which helps align the customer’s overall cost of ownership with its size and anticipated growth and business needs.
With the introduction of PeopleSoft On Demand Standard Edition, Oracle further extends its portfolio of PeopleSoft On Demand offerings which have seen significant growth over the last few quarters. Customers now have additional flexibility deploying their PeopleSoft HCM solution, ranging from a highly standards-based deployment in the cloud to a more customizable deployment on premise.

PeopleSoft HCM On Demand Features and Benefits

PeopleSoft HCM On Demand Standard Edition provides customers with the following benefits:
An affordable and predictable per employee, monthly pricing model that provides a measurable return on investment.
The industry’s highest standards of security access, production environment, and disaster recovery processes.
The ability to retain a high degree of choice to transition between different deployment and service models at any point in the application ownership lifecycle.
Complete end-to-end management of all technical and functional aspects of their PeopleSoft deployment.
Automatic, scheduled updates of the latest releases of PeopleSoft HCM and PeopleTools. Customers will have access to all new major releases as well as the latest maintenance packs, bundles, and feature packs without any additional costs.
PeopleSoft HCM On Demand Standard Edition is based on configurability options rather than customizations, requiring no additional code to develop or maintain, which keeps the cost of ownership low and time to production less than a month on average.
Oracle’s PeopleSoft HCM On Demand offers native integrations between PeopleSoft HCM and a broad set of other PeopleSoft applications that can be hosted in On Demand or on-premise.
