What is peoplesoft

Hello I am currently a web/database administrator for the Air Force and will be separating soon. I have been seeing alot of peoplesoft requirements. I have never gotten to work with this before. What is peoplesoft? Is there a demo version I can dl? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks- Joe

RE: What is peoplesoft

PeopleSoft is an ERP package. It tries to have enough variety in it's product line so that it "fits" most everybody. Peoplesoft bought the JD Edwards product last year, which menas that it now has almost 3 distinct versions of the software. The original peoplesoft, the JD Edwards OneWorld product, which are both client/server products, and work on a variety of platforms. And the old JD Edwards World product, which is an AS400 platform product. I believe that eventually the client server products will merge into a single offering. The question is if they will keep the World product, they have stated they will, but people change their minds. As the world product would seem to be a different sort of beast to them. I believe that the client server products are not database dependant, (Qracle, SQL, etc). While the World product, being specific to a platform is IBMs DB400.  

RE: What is peoplesoft

Peoplesoft handles alot of areas covering HR, Financials, CRM, Student records, Minimal Distribution and manufacturing (That is why the merged with JD Edwards).  The package is too large for a demo download, besides, way too many variables when it is customized.

I got introduced to Peoplesoft back in '98 when they hired me as an Instructor when I retired out of the Army. Old co-workers tell me that JD Edwards and Peoplesoft will probably merge the products withing the next 2-3 releases.
