Companies have invested in PeopleSoft and JD Edwards software for years, which includes paying Oracle maintenance support in exchange for upgrades that contained new features and innovation. Now that Oracle has announced that their future is the Oracle Cloud, what is the path forward for those existing platforms?
Whether or not you are going to the PeopleSoft RECONNECT or JD Edwards INFOCUS conferences this year, you may have questions or concerns about your applications, Oracle’s Continuous Innovation release model, or how best to implement IaaS or PaaS.
During this 30-minute recorded session, Jason Kotsaftis, Sr. Director, Product Marketing and Ray Grisby, VP of Global JD Edwards Service Delivery share five questions to ask Oracle and RECONNECT and INFOCUS.
