PeopleSoft gets Net-ready

PeopleSoft Inc. has rewritten its enterprise resource planning software to eliminate all traces of the original client-server architecture, officials of the Pleasanton, Calif., company said this month.

The new PeopleSoft 8 is based on Hypertext Markup Language and Extensible Markup Language for use with browsers, company president and chief executive officer Craig Conway said. Core PeopleSoft applications, such as Human Resource Management, Financials and Professional Services Automation, have 59 new collaborative apps, he said.

The PeopleSoft federal users network advises the company about apps that will aid government agencies, said Chuck Girard, vice president and general manager of PeopleSoft's federal government sector. PeopleSoft this fall will release new government apps for Version 8.
