Oracle has announced that its Discoverer 10g tool has been certified for use with the Peoplesoft Enterprise Performance Management 8.9 analytic applications suite.
The database giant said the certification for EPM was part of its commitment to allowing Peoplesoft users to maximise their existing technology investments, while offering the benefit of Discoverer 10g's reporting, analysis, customisation and web-publishing capabilities.
The fate of longstanding Peoplesoft users has been a sensitive issue since Oracle bought up its rival early this year. Some Peoplesoft customers feared they would be forced to migrate should Oracle fail to support their existing systems.
“With the certification of Oracle Discoverer 10g for Peoplesoft EPM 8.9, Peoplesoft customers finally have the option of standardising on an end-to-end business intelligence framework from a single vendor,” said John Wookey, senior vice-president of applications development at Oracle.
But obtaining the newly certified version of Discoverer 10g means buying the Business Intelligence 10g package of which it is a component part – at a cost of $20,000 (£11,059) per processor or $400 per named user.
Oracle Business Intelligence 10g is also included with the enterprise edition of Oracle’s Application Server 10g.
