Even with a stable PeopleSoft HCM and FSCM system, the impact of changes in other layers of the technology stack can ripple across ERP applications. A global manufacturer needed to update thousands of Windows desktops in order to retain support and security, and existing PeopleTools also needed to be updated to remain compatible. After the upgrade, however, serious performance issues plagued the system. Because the issues were intermittent and non-replicable outside the production environment, on-site help at the manufacturer's data center was necessary.
