Exxova and Summit Deliver Hosted PeopleSoft Services
Both companies involved in the deal have experience with the traditionally on-premise PeopleSoft: Summit Technology provides the managed PeopleSoft itself; Exxova brings its PeopleSoft Upgrade Lab and RapidosSM accelerators, which they say reduces upgrade complexity and time, to the table.
The combined Exxova-Summit solution gives customers “application management, hosting and operational maintenance services in a flexible delivery model built on deep functional domain and proven technical expertise,” says the press release. As a hosted, managed service, the companies will provide ongoing routine maintenance as well as upgrades and special project support.
Also driving value, the companies say, is the Exxova-powered Personal AssistantSM web dashboard, giving clients a way to manage support priorities and enabling response times of as little as ten minutes.
Managed ERP is hot, with companies like Microsoft and NetSuite competing for market share. But by delivering Oracle’s legacy PeopleSoft as a managed service, Exxova and Summit Technology are giving organizations a different route.
