An interesting post about PeopleSoft and Oracle

I saw Richard Byrom's post this morning on - (broken link) orablogs titled Project Fusion at Peoplesoft Planet and went across for a look as I am interested to see how the new Oracle / Peoplesoft marriage is going. Richard informs us of an interesting portal site called Oracle and Peoplesoft planet. The part of the post that was interesting to me was the page on Project Fusion on the same site. Fusion is the rumoured codename of the first Oracle / Peoplesoft combined application. This is due to be released after PeopleSoft 9 has been out for a while. Fusion will be a major competitor for SAP.

The site then details some of the items that they feel Oracle should do to make Fusion a success. The whole list makes interesting reading but the one item that interested me was the one related to security. The author states that security integration is the key to success. Security companies such as Oblix and Netegrity are mentioned as companies familiar with securing ERP solutions. The suggestion is that industry standard tools if added to the product would make it an industry winner. As the author says, companies that are able to keep client data secure will triumph.

Interesting sentiments.
