Oracle PeopleSoft Community Survey (Whitepaper)

Want to know how companies that use Oracle PeopleSoft are actually utilizing their solutions? Our annual PeopleSoft Community Survey report gives you answers. Every year we first survey the entire official PeopleSoft user community.  We then analyze all survey response data. Next, we pull key insights and summarize the most important findings. Finally, we publish one of our most valuable resources. The report illustrates what PeopleSoft customers are doing now. Perhaps even more important, it reveals how they plan to maximize their solutions tomorrow.

Download the report we developed from 1,439 responses to this year’s survey. Most respondents were from large organizations of 1,000 – 10,000+ employees. Their companies operate in 190 countries and span 25 industries such as public sector, education and financials. Respondents primarily work in middle management roles, but more than 10% are in senior, executive or C-level positions.

Our methodology allows Quest to demonstrate these and other findings:

  • Selective Adoption strategies and plans for staying current, PeopleSoft Fluid and customizations

Are Oracle PeopleSoft companies planning to run PeopleSoft in the Cloud?

26 percent of community companies currently using PeopleSoft Tools and Technology are thinking about running PeopleSoft in the cloud. This figure is up five percentage points from 2017.

67 percent said they are not considering it, while seven percent said they are already running all or part of their PeopleSoft solution in the cloud. This represents a seven percentage point increase from 2017. The option of “Not sure” was not included in the 2018 survey. (This explains the drop in that response.)
