PeopleSoft First to Support Apple Safari Browser

PeopleSoft First to Support Apple Safari Browser PeopleSoft Expands Commitment to Open Source and Choice for Customers

PeopleSoft Inc. (Nasdaq: PSFT) announced that it is the first enterprise applications vendor to announce plans to certify Apple’s open source-based Safari web browser. The Safari browser delivers the fastest web browser performance in the Mac OS X environment and once certified will enable PeopleSoft users to be more productive.

Users of PeopleSoft applications will be able to take advantage of unique features of Apple’s Safari including SnapBack navigation that enables a user to step back through a transaction with a single click rather than many. The new tabbed browsing feature will enable users to access multiple PeopleSoft application pages in a single window, which is important in multi�lingual call centres where a customer service agent needs access to applications in more than one language on the same system.

“PeopleSoft is committed to open source standards – which significantly reduce total cost of ownership,” said Rick Bergquist, chief technology officer, PeopleSoft. “PeopleSoft customers who run PeopleSoft pure internet applications on Safari will benefit from faster load speeds and increased performance.”

“PeopleSoft’s commitment to Mac OS X and open standards will attract a larger number of enterprise customers than closed proprietary technology,” said Ron Okamoto, Apple’s vice president of worldwide developer relations. “Mac OS X’s UNIX-based architecture and Safari’s revolutionary features provide the stability, performance and usability needed for web-based enterprise applications. ”

Apple Safari browser support will be provided in the fourth quarter of 2003. This deepens PeopleSoft’s commitment to the Mac platform and will complement its existing support for Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X.
