PeopleSoft Enterprise On Demand and Oracle® On Demand for Siebel CRM -- New On Demand Offerings Give Customers Flexibility and Choice

REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., 19-OCT-2006 Oracle today announced the general availability of Oracle PeopleSoft Enterprise On Demand and Oracle On Demand for Siebel CRM (Customer Relationship Management). In addition to giving customers choice and flexibility, these new services further expand the Oracle On Demand portfolio of industry-leading Software as a Service and Managed Applications offerings. Oracle is the only software company to offer a complete range of On Demand services across its software products; including subscription-based solutions, managed applications, hosting, and software management services.

“These new offerings expand the Oracle On Demand portfolio and give customers both flexibility and choice of deployment models, while helping assure Siebel and PeopleSoft users that Oracle will continue to support their investments,” said Sheryl Kingstone, director, Enterprise Applications and Mobility Strategies, Yankee Group. “With Oracle managing their software, customers can focus on strategic IT or business initiatives instead of the on-going maintenance and support of the applications.”

“With these Oracle On Demand offerings, customers will benefit from the repeatable processes for implementation, upgrades and operation that ultimately help speed deployment as well as provide customers a comprehensive suite of management services to protect, extend and evolve the value of their Siebel CRM and PeopleSoft Enterprise investments,” said Marc Schwarz, senior vice president, Oracle On Demand. This is the natural evolution of On Demand and Oracle is leading the charge"

The latest Oracle On Demand services deliver comprehensive enterprise functionality and deep industry expertise while enabling customers to focus on results because Oracle experts maintain the responsibility of deploying, managing, and updating the software. PeopleSoft Enterprise On Demand applications deliver company-wide functions such as human resources, finance, IT, procurement, marketing, services and sales across all industries. Oracle On Demand for Siebel CRM includes advanced order management and analytics capabilities and provides deep vertical functionality, including comprehensive business process support optimized for 23 industries. The new Siebel offering complements Oracle’s Siebel CRM On Demand offering and extends the benefits of On Demand to the entire Siebel customer base. The expanded Oracle On Demand portfolio gives customers the widest choice available; including license, subscription, managed applications, hosting solutions, as well as software management services.

“Oracle On Demand for Siebel CRM makes sense because it will allow us to leverage Oracle’s industry leading information management products and services while keeping our focus on managing our business,” said Steve Hallett, director, IT Strategy, Roll International. “Oracle’s broad On Demand offerings give us the flexibility we need to accommodate our evolving IT needs.”

With the addition of Oracle On Demand for Siebel CRM and Oracle PeopleSoft Enterprise On Demand, Oracle continues to help improve the availability, performance, and security of IT environments, while providing access to the latest software releases and upgrades.
