Survey Report: Licensees’ Insights into the Future of Their PeopleSoft Roadmaps
What are the major challenges PeopleSoft licensees face – and what are their future PeopleSoft ERP plans?

Rimini Street: What We Do
We don't make ERP or database software like Oracle and SAP. We support and manage that software. Over the past 15 years, we have helped over 3,000 clients save billions of dollars. It's because we are built for support. Built to help clients avoid costly fees and ERP upgrades, so they can innovate and fuel growth. Other companies do software. We do support.
PeopleSoft Customers Funding New Growth and Innovation
Many PeopleSoft customers share the same concern-they feel they are receiving less new value from Oracle than they did in the past. They may also be caught in an expensive cycle of paying Oracle nearly 22% per year in maintenance fees, essentially repurchasing their existing software license every five years.
If this sounds familiar-and inefficient-what if you could:
Save 50-90% on total support costs for PeopleSoft software, with exceptional service and responsiveness?
Free up IT capacity by securing support for your existing PeopleSoft release (including customizations) up to 15 years, without forced upgrades or continuous updates?
Accelerate growth now, improve the speed and quality of IT’s response to business needs; and stop paying for-and waiting for-unknown future software innovations?
With Rimini Street independent, third-party support for PeopleSoft software, you can—just as eight featured PeopleSoft customers have as they extended the lives of their ERP investments, freed up IT teams for critical projects, and funded new innovation and growth initiatives.

Choose the Best PeopleSoft Path
Thousands of companies around the globe rely on PeopleSoft to support their businesses. And if your company is one of them, your current PeopleSoft release could probably run your operations for decades to come.
The problem is that many of these PeopleSoft releases are already in sustaining support, or will be soon, as Oracle continues its own strategic focus elsewhere. This leaves PeopleSoft customers facing a choice between Oracle’s very high cost/lower value PeopleSoft support, or a move to an immature Oracle cloud that could be 3X more expensive than what they pay today.1
Fortunately, there is another option. This infographic shows how third-party support from Rimini Street provides exceptional support for less, addresses regulatory, tax, and legal updates, and can extend the life of your PeopleSoft investment in any scenario.

People Talk – Fluid and Customizations
One of the main features in PeopleSoft 9.2 is Fluid Pages. While Oracle is providing new content for these pages in the form of 9.2 updates, the technology itself has been available for several years. And the Fluid Pages themselves are often tailored by end-users for their specific environment, so customers need to think of Fluid Pages more as a tool set than a fully automated solution.
People Talk – Supporting Fixes
One of the top questions PeopleSoft customers have with third-party software support is how to develop fixes for their problems without access to vendor patches.
In this video, Rimini Street discusses first-hand experience in addressing fixes with PeopleSoft clients, including support for custom code that the software vendor does not currently provide today.
