DSI has conducted PeopleSoft installations since 1996. We advise our clients on the architecture and infrastructure layouts of all the technology stacks involved in their PeopleSoft installation.

A typical PeopleSoft Installation involves the following:

  • PeopleTools
  • PeopleSoft Enterprise products, referred to as PeopleSoft Tuxedo for application server and process scheduler. Webserver products like WebLogic, Websphere or Oracle application servers
  • Pure Internet Architecture
  • Change Assistant
  • Change Impact Analyzer

We develop the initial planning of the installation which involves defining the servers, including the file server, database server, application and batch servers and the webserver. We identify the best infrastructure layout and we advise on load balancing of both the middle tier (application server) and the webserver. Many times this requires complex configuration changes that are needed in order for the system to work effectively. Since we have assisted a number of organizations with their installations, we understand the pitfalls and bottle necks that can be avoided as related to performance and capacity.

As part of the initial install, we install the change assistant, PeopleBooks and EM-hub.

DSI advises you on how best to separate out the installations for the various production and non production environments so that the environment is easy to use and maintain. Our experience has given us a solid understanding of the best methods to when completing the installation. This benefits you by avoiding costly reruns or reinstalls that occasionally occur due to issues previously not detected.
