In the first three parts of this Spend Matters PRO series on Oracle’s procurement offerings, we discussed Oracle EBS Advanced Procurement, Oracle Procurement Cloud, the capabilities of Oracle Information Discovery and Vinimaya integration with Oracle Procurement Solutions. Today, in this final installment, we examine PeopleSoft Procurement and its plans for the future. PeopleSoft, one of the first ERPs in the market, was purchased by Oracle in 2004 to help the software giant gain greater market share and increase its ability to invest in application development and support — and to prove to the market that it was serious in taking on (and even passing) SAP as the dominant ERP and business applications giant. PeopleSoft competes in the procurement and purchase-to-pay (P2P) space with its PeopleSoft Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) suite, which integrates applications such as Purchasing, e-Procurement, Catalog Management, e-Supplier Connection, Supplier Contract Management, Strategic Sourcing, e-Settlements, Procurement and Spend Analysis and Services Procurement. This Spend Matters PRO research brief provides an overview of each of these modules and offers further perspective and analysis of PeopleSoft’s procurement capabilities.
