Linux Support to PeopleSoft EnterpriseOne

PeopleSoft Extends Linux Support to
PeopleSoft EnterpriseOne

Customers Benefit from Open Standards Technology and Greater Platform Choice

PeopleSoft, Inc. (Nasdaq: PSFT) today announced that PeopleSoft® EnterpriseOne will support Red Hat Linux. PeopleSoft EnterpriseOne customers that choose to run their applications on Linux can reduce their total cost of ownership by providing an open source, secure and stable operating system.

PeopleSoft EnterpriseOne will support Red Hat Linux for its Human Capital Management, Supply Chain Management, Supplier Relationship Management, Financial Management, Asset Lifecycle Management and Project Management applications.

Support for Red Hat Linux is currently available for the PeopleSoft Enterprise family of applications.

“Across New Zealand, Australia and the rest of Asia Pacific and Japan, organisations are looking for choice – choice of hardware, software, database and operating system,” said Ray Kloss, Director Product and Industry Marketing PeopleSoft, Japan and Asia Pacific. “Coupling the richness of functionality that the PeopleSoft EnterpriseOne product family offers, with support for Linux provides customers with a compelling lower total cost of ownership, especially for those smaller and medium-sized businesses.”

Linux Gains Momentum

Linux continues to gain significant momentum and acceptance in organisations around the world.

- META Group predicts that Linux will grow its current enterprise server market share from less than 10 percent to approximately 30 percent by 2007.

- IDC has projected that Linux server shipments will have a compounded annual growth rate of more than 28 percent through 2007.

- A December 2003 SG Cowen survey of more than 500 IT users in North America found Linux was in use at nearly 80 percent of their sites, with 72 percent on servers and 15 percent on desktops.

“PeopleSoft EnterpriseOne support for Red Hat Linux is a direct response to increased customer demand and our commitment to giving customers greater choice,” said Jesper Andersen, Group Vice President and General Manager, PeopleSoft Tools and Technology.

Support for Red Hat Linux will be available in the Q2 2004 release of PeopleSoft EnterpriseOne 8.10. PeopleSoft EnterpriseOne applications running on Red Hat Linux will also support the database, application and web server tiers. PeopleSoft continues to work with IBM as a development partner to deliver its applications in a Linux environment.
