Looking ahead…

In March, Oracle announced the decision to extend support for PeopleSoft to 2034 - furthering its commitment to support PeopleSoft applications for a rolling 10 years!  The announcement came shortly after the week-long digital event, PeopleSoft Week. The community excitement carried over into Part 1: RECONNECT Live! At BLUEPRINT 4D. 

Many highly anticipated conferences await for the second portion of 2023, including Oracle CloudWorld in September and Part 2: RECONNECT Dive Deep - Virtual in October. We can expect to see continued Image Updates for PeopleSoft HCM and FSCM applications that follow the newly adopted delivery schedule of 3 images per year. Likewise, we can also anticipate further technological advancements from Oracle’s PeopleSoft development team.
