“If you work with PeopleSoft applications more than PeopleTools and the tech stack, you may not have seen or paid much attention to the announcement of PeopleSoft Cloud Manager. After all, it is technology that helps deploy and manage PeopleSoft environments. That’s what IT and the technical folks do. But please don't ignore this one…let me explain why.
When we talk with customers, we often hear you are grappling with challenges like:
· Struggling to keep up with the pace and number of new features being delivered
· Your IT and line of business need to better communicate and work together
· You have limited IT resource capacity to support the projects you desire
· You lack the environment capacity to develop, test, upgrade, train, or explore new features
· There are too many competing priorities and projects
· Demands to adopt cloud solutions
‘Do More With Less’ is a cliché (and an all-too-real demand that seems to be constantly pressed upon us), but Cloud Manager literally allows you to do just that. This is not marketing spin, I’m speaking from direct experience.
Prior to 2013, the PeopleSoft team would spend weeks each year budgeting our development and test environments. Every team had to review their list, justify what they wanted to keep and even more so any new requirements. Groups were pitted against each other, vying over a finite pool and arguing over which project was more critical. The demand was greater each year, but the total allocation was less. In a very real way, environments acted as a physical constraint on our capacity and our ability to deliver, and we spent a lot of time and effort managing that constraint.
We don’t do that anymore.
In 2013, when we launched the PeopleSoft 9.2 release, we also rolled out a new internal system that was the predecessor of and the inspiration for PeopleSoft Cloud Manager.”
