As part of an organizational-wide move to Cloud initiative, Dynata sought a Cloud hosting solution for its PeopleSoft FSCM application. They needed to keep read-only access for their PeopleSoft application so users could validate all historic transactions Decreasing their infrastructure support was also as equally important as their cloud strategy.
Time to implement
Running PeopleSoft FSCM application on an outdated version of PeopleTools which was installed on an OS that was no longer being supported (CentOS and Windows 2008 R2). The ability to provide a secure and recoverable IT environment was critical to the project. Business continuity for users around the globe was also a concern.
Need for a highly available infrastructure
A solid disaster recovery plan
Astute Business Solutions' Oracle Cloud Infrastructure-based Managed Service solution was chosen for migrating Dynata's PeopleSoft application to OCI. Using RackWare's RMM software as a service, Astute and RackWare were able to provision and sync as-is from on-prem PeopleSoft to OCI in record time.
