Based on my experience, if your company is expanding on a very high level and already has good growth in it, you could do very well with Oracle. If you want to develop your own project as well, which involves standardized as well as customized forms, that would be another reason to go with Oracle. SAP has their own advantages as well, so I would not say that Oracle is the best platform. You could go with SAP also. It depends which company asks for which ERP software. I would rate this solution as seven out of ten.

There have been a lot of upgrades in the 9.2 version with the UI and implementation of data analytics, HR analytics, the analytics dashboards have been introduced, the mobility, and the ability to use PeopleSoft applications on a mobile device. The features are good but you will have to do cost-data analysis with other modules and if it fits you can go for it. It is a good product to go with. You get all of the features, and anything that you don't get, you can customize. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

I'm a consultant; I've used the solution for five years and have marketed the solution for two years. We handle the private cloud deployment model with Amazon as the cloud provider. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. If they offered easier integration, and maybe a broader library of APIs that can be utilized by third-party integrations, I'd rate the solution higher.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten. There could be more adaptability of the system because obviously it's much better now with being able to do your own reports and navigate around, which was not the case in the past. Perhaps the developers can also work on better reporting because I think there is still room for improvement in that area. My advice to others would be to believe in the system. This solution has the potential of making life easier, so it is just a question of adaptation to it. If users are willing to give the system a chance, it should work for them.

It's important to know the product, but know the business, it's just as important. Most are going with cloud solutions because they don't want the IT departments. When you go with the cloud, you have to accept it, you can't change it. Anytime there is a change you have to pay for customization and that is very expensive. People should understand the features and the payroll policies to have it work correctly. PeopleSoft had Canadian and US payroll tables in the same table and you have to know or remember to put the correct payroll code. I don't believe in obtaining a license, it's about the working experience. People are now interested in WorkDay, for mobile computing. WorkDay was initially put in place to replace PeopleSoft from the people who designed PeopleSoft. They aimed to replace PeopleSoft with WorkDay because they were upset that PeopleSoft sold. It was a hostile bid and they didn't want to sell but it got sold. Peoplesoft has been in business since 1988, they are very mature. Review the implementation of your existing software. If you are looking for payroll software, PeopleSoft is a solid system. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Spend more time in deciding the architecture and hosting environment based on the experience (virtualization, database, clustering, load balancing, server platform) on the technology side. To provide quicker benefits to the whole population, build a 2FA solution from the beginning and provide all self-service functionality right from the beginning (that can include all benefits and related documentation online) — that way management would see clear benefits.
