Peoplesoft popularity by numbers!

Every other day I indulge in some kind of debate regarding the future of Peoplesoft and the imminent assault of Fusion on the PS breed!! I must say that its murky times for us Peoplesoft consultants though Oracle has gone overboard to support and develop the product. Considering this, it was pleasant to read this post on the Grey Sparling blog about the popularity of Peoplesoft. Some interesting numbers from the article:

  • 9 of top 10 commercial banks are ps customers
  • 59% of top 100 of fortune 500 companies own ps
  • retail - the 5 biggest use ps
  • 6 of top 10 communications companies use PeopleSoft
  • 60% of the top 15 insurance companies use PeopleSoft
  • 70% of top 10 health care organizations use PeopleSoft
  • 19 us states use PeopleSoft
  • 50 of largest counties and cities use PeopleSoft
  • 7 of top 10 research universities use PeopleSoft
  • 8 of top 10 printing and publishing companies use PeopleSoft
Numbers and statistics can be misleading if not read in the correct context, but considering the features of the product, the way Peoplesoft has evolved under Oracle by incorporating so many of the Fusion middleware features and the very vocal commitment of Oracle to Peoplesoft customers tell me that we should be in business for quite some time!
