PeopleSoft shares the functional wealth

New pre-integrated applications make good on a promise PeopleSoft made when it first acquired J.D. Edwards -- to share strengths across product lines.

PeopleSoft Inc. continued down its product road map Monday with the announcement of prepackaged integration among

products acquired when it bought J.D. Edwards & Co. this summer.

The release of seven pre-integrated applications allows customers of each of PeopleSoft's three product lines to take advantage of strengths found in other offerings. For example, companies running PeopleSoft Enterprise can tap CRM functionality in EnterpriseOne, the midmarket, manufacturing-focused line formerly called J.D. Edwards 5.

Pleasanton, Calif.-based PeopleSoft said Enterprise customers benefit from the integration of real estate management, asset life cycle management and advanced planning from its EnterpriseOne line. EnterpriseOne users gain order capture, strategic sourcing and human resource management capabilities from Enterprise.

The pre-integration makes good on the promise that PeopleSoft stated at its annual user show, when it vowed to share functional strengths across product lines. Since acquiring J.D. Edwards, PeopleSoft has released EnterpriseOne 8.9 and announced it would also offer JDE software through a hosted model.

Additionally, PeopleSoft announced four new enterprise performance management (EPM) applications for customers of EnterpriseOne and World, the software line designed to run on IBM's iSeries platform.

Data from EnterpriseOne and World have been consolidated onto PeopleSoft's Enterprise Warehouse, making EPM applications such as Global Consolidations, Manufacturing Scorecard and Supplier Rating System available to the company's smaller customers.
