PeopleTools 8.60 Platform Certifications
Are you planning to upgrade to PeopleTools 8.60 ?
When planning an upgrade, you always want to make sure that you're using the certified version of the software. In most situations, upgrading PeopleTools would require you to upgrade some of the existing software such as OS upgrade or Database upgrade.
All of these software upgrade activities needs to be in a planned order for a smoother PeopleTools upgrade, otherwise you may end up delaying the upgrade. I've seen this happen quite a few times where poor planning results in the additional costs for procuring hardware, upgrading applications/software and exceeding budget for the whole project.
Hence, it becomes really important to review the latest certifications for your target PeopleTools and plan your PeopleTools upgrade accordingly.
In addition to reviewing PeopleTools certifications, you may also want to review the Oracle's 'Next Release 1+1 Policy' to understand the PeopeTools support policy.
