Technology

Outdated and Unsupported Infrastructure, Business Continuity

Running PeopleSoft FSCM application on an outdated version of PeopleTools which was installed on an OS that was no longer being supported (CentOS and Windows 2008 R2).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.

The Solution

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure

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.
