ORACLE LIFETIME SUPPORT POLICY

Did you hear? Oracle announced a change to the Oracle Lifetime Support policy for PeopleSoft applications that further illustrates their commitment to PeopleSoft.  As of June 2018, Oracle has no plans to end PeopleSoft investment or support.

Oracle has adjusted the Oracle Lifetime Support policy and intends to provide Premier Support “through at least” December 2030 for its PeopleSoft Continuous Innovation Releases. PeopleSoft applications (CRM, CS, ELM, FMS, ESA, SCM and HCM) moved to a Continuous Innovation model with the initial delivery of the 9.2 release in March of 2013.

These support policy changes are documented on page 5 (the 9th page of the document) of the updated Oracle Lifetime Support Policy for Oracle Applications.

Further adjustments to the Oracle Lifetime Support policy include Oracle’s plan to review and update this policy on an annual basis. Beginning in calendar year 2019, Oracle intends on extending the currently stated Premier Support “through at least” date by one year and to repeat this annually. These annual, one-year incremental extensions to PeopleSoft are planned to continue until further notice from Oracle. This creates a rolling window of 10+ years of Premier Support for the PeopleSoft Continuous Innovation Releases.

This change in the Oracle Lifetime Support policy demonstrates Oracle’s acknowledgement that customers who continue to rely on PeopleSoft applications for their core business processes need a better understanding of their support timeline horizons.  The investment that Oracle continues to make in the PeopleSoft applications remains strong and there are NO plans to end investment or de-support PeopleSoft.

The information on the Oracle support change and more was included in a recent Oracle blog posting “Oracle’s Commitment: No Plans to End PeopleSoft Investment or Support – June 2018

PeopleSoft Innovators

Posted by

Congratulations to the newest PeopleSoft Innovators! While attending Quest’s Collaborate 2018, Rebekah Jackson, VP PeopleSoft Strategy & Product Management, announced the latest organizations who earned recognition as PeopleSoft Innovators. The group included three of MIPRO’s customers: Adventist Health System, Black Hills Corporation and Intermountain Healthcare. While MIPRO was not directly involved in the innovations these organizations were honored for, we are encouraged by all the new innovations we are seeing every day throughout the PeopleSoft community.

PeopleSoft has been around for many years and, while the reports of its death are grossly exaggerated, it is encouraging to see companies getting more and more out of their significant investment. To see all the organizations recognized as PeopleSoft Innovators and to get specifics on how they are incorporating the newest features of PeopleSoft into their organization visit Oracle’s blog: https://blogs.oracle.com/peoplesoft/oracle-announces-peoplesoft-innovators-at-collaborate-2018

The Mystery of the Missing Equipment Parts List

Posted by

A while back I shared the not-so-hidden treasure of Equipment Parts List (EPL) (click here if you missed the blog). I found that many users were creating very broad lists that really didn’t allow them the most effective use of the functionality or lists would be created, but when trying to tie it to an […]

Preventive Maintenance Linking Schedule

Preventive Maintenance Linking functionality allows for multiple preventive maintenance jobs for the same asset to be structured in such a way as to avoid multiple work orders and overlap of the same steps.

Equipment Parts Lists

Posted by

While Equipment Parts Lists may not be as hidden as other gems I’ve discussed – this one is often delayed due to internal discussions of ownership and maintenance. Equipment Parts Lists, or EPLs as they’re called, are valuable time savers to technicians on the ground. However, the time and labor to set them up and […]

Elasticsearch the ONLY way to go…after April 30

Posted by

With the introduction of Elasticsearch in Tools 8.55, searching for data in PeopleSoft became […]
