We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"I would recommend the solution. It's very stable and scalable, which makes it a reliable solution.""The solution's scalability is good.""Peoplesoft is the best payroll software in the market.""The new version of this solution is very scalable.""The customizations allow us to come up with a lot of complex labor rules. In the Philippines, there's a lot of different kinds of rules you need to be in compliance with. The solution offers up a lot of flexibility and customization that is perfect for our region's requirements.""PeopleSoft is easy to understand, where any end user that is logged in can easily navigate through the menus.""In general, this solution is user friendly and also performs well. There are two types of forms. One is a standardized form, which you can define things into. The other, you can customize so more repetition can be done in an even manner. That way, it can be designed for what the public or user actually wants. It's not very tough for any person, or layman to understand exactly what the screen requires one to do.""The recruiting is most valuable. It saves time in having easy and fast applicants tracking as well as candidates' contact plus pipeline management."

"Responsive, comprehensive and optimized solution.""It is a very powerful, highly customizable tool.""In terms of its most valuable feature, I would say the finance module.""The performance of the solution is excellent.""The processes have been reduced from almost 10 steps to four or five steps. It's really been simplified.""From a technology standpoint, the theory and analytics are fascinating.""The key modules that I find most valuable are material management (MM), financial accounting and controlling (FICO), and human resources (HR).""The scalability is excellent, especially on cloud deployment models."

Cons
"The solution could have better processes and automation, or features that allow for a paperless environment.""The solution needs to work on its mobile technology. We're hoping in the next version we're working on implementing, 9.2, will have more of this.""If there is another release, they should look at going to mobile computing to stay competitive.""There could be more adaptability of the system.""Often support just asks people to install a lot of upgrades. Sometimes they don't really give you clear details as to why you need to upgrade. They just say, "You need to upgrade this because there's a newer image, etc". They never really give you the reason underlying why you are having errors.""It would be helpful for the end-user if the reports were customized. They would be able to select the fields while generating their reports.""I think the inventory part it should be simplified. There is the GR, or good receipt note, which is the time that the materials comes in, and the work days, etc. There is a lot of shuffling through pages, which creates a lot of problems for our users. They don't know which page to go to, where to create a GR, or where to create a stock entry. In other words, all the information is very daunting. It's very easy for people to understand and get a better clarity over it.""Parsing of CVs is productive but accuracy can be improved."

More PeopleSoft Cons »

"Lacking in some customizations.""It requires a lot of planning to implement the product correctly.""The common issues being raised right now by the end users are mostly related to the usability.""The cost of the solution is quite high. It needs to be adjusted.""The theory-side of the solution needs to be improved.""Every year, when a new version is released, it comes with a very thick booklet of 300 or 400 pages and it is a little difficult to comprehend.""The two things that need to be improved are price and customization.""Technical support has been declining. They aren't as responsive as they used to be."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It's approximately $3,000,000 to $4,000,000 USD per year.""The licensing cost for PeopleSoft is 3,500 per course and the annual subscription fee is 6,500.""I don't know if they are still providing licenses or if they have suspending licenses.""There are no additional costs for licensing."

Overview
Oracle's PeopleSoft applications are designed to address the most complex business requirements. They provide comprehensive business and industry solutions, enabling organizations to increase productivity, accelerate business performance, and provide a lower cost of ownership.

SAP S/4HANA stands for SAP Suite 4 HANA. It is a next-generation integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) software that is designed for businesses of all sizes, in all industries, that require deep and broad functionality combined with a high degree of flexibility. SAP S/4HANA was launched in 2015 and been adopted by more than 3,200 customers over a period of sixteen months. SAP S/4HANA is materially different from anything SAP has done before and represents the company’s biggest innovation since SAP R/3.

SAP S/4HANA is intended to provide a digital core for an organization. It is fully architected for the most advanced in-memory platform, SAP HANA, and is designed on the most modern design principles with the SAP Fiori user experience to create a personalized and simple feel on users’ device of choice (tablet, laptop, mobile). SAP S/4HANA aims to simplify an organizations’ system landscape and reduce total cost of ownership by shrinking the data footprint while at the same time improving productivity levels in the form of higher throughput. S/4HANA can be deployed either on premise, in the cloud, or in a hybrid combination for quick time-to-value. Timelines for cloud deployments average around six months.

SAP S/4HANA is designed to drive business innovation by connecting people, devices, and business networks in real time to support the development of new business models. It will also help accelerate the adoption of, and connection to, the Internet of Things and Big Data. SAP S/4HANA can analyze big data at unprecedented speed allowing users to access real-time information from anywhere, any way they’d like and thus help managers make truly insightful decisions. The simplified data model allows customers to reimagine their IT, helping to drive lower costs and deliver IT efficiency. This, coupled with the SAP S/4HANA prediction and simulation capabilities allow it to anticipate the impact of business outcomes. By doing all the above, SAP S/4HANA aims to provide ultimate sophistication in the simplest possible manner.
