New Oracle Lifetime Support Policy for PeopleSoft
Frederic Portal, Ataway Director of Alliance and Strategy

Oracle announced a change to the Oracle Lifetime Support policy for PeopleSoft applications that illustrates their commitment to PeopleSoft.  As of April 2017, the Oracle Lifetime Support end date for PeopleSoft HCM/ELM and Financials (FMS/ESA/SCM) 9.2, as well as Campus Solutions 9.2, has now been pushed out to December 2027. 

Oracle was clear, in their announcement, December 2027 date is NOT, the end of life date for PeopleSoft.  The investment that Oracle continues to make in the PeopleSoft applications remains strong and there are NO plans to end investment or de-support PeopleSoft.

Oracle’s strong commitment to invest in and support PeopleSoft has been unwavering for several years. With the January 2016 update to the Oracle Lifetime Support Document, Oracle clearly illustrates its commitment to support PeopleSoft HCM and Financials (FMS/ESA/SCM) 9.2 “through at least” December 2027.

Changes to support timelines were driven by Oracle’s Continuous Delivery model for PeopleSoft and the advent of PeopleSoft Selective Adoption. Under Oracle’s Continuous Delivery model, PeopleSoft HCM and Financials (FMS/ESA/SCM) 9.2 applications receive new functionality and enhancements via selective adoption updates (PeopleSoft Update Images). Customer can now update their application with new images.

The recent changes in the Oracle Lifetime Support Document also clarify Oracle’s policy for updating support dates due to Oracle’s Continuous Delivery model. Support dates are evaluated for update annually by Oracle’s PeopleSoft team. So we can assume that Oracle will extend the date of support after December 2027. Support for PeopleSoft applications will be provided through at least the dates listed in the Oracle Lifetime Support Document.

The information on the Oracle support change and more was included in a recent Oracle blog posting “Oracle Lifetime Support Document Updated For PeopleSoft – April 2017”.
