|SIG Information:||PeopleSoft Internet Architecture—introduced with PeopleTools® 8—is a pure internet, server-centric runtime architecture for deploying and executing eBusiness applications. The PeopleTools 8 development environment is a development workbench that empowers developers to create, customize, upgrade, and monitor the eBusiness applications that the PeopleSoft Internet Architecture executes. This flexible development environment empowers your organization to thrive on change—like the
need for faster operations, more extensive business outsourcing, and a greater sharing of enterprise knowledge—by customizing applications using the same toolset used to build the applications. Combining a pure internet runtime architecture with a robust web development environment, PeopleTools 8 fundamentally improves global enterprise application delivery, empowers users, and accelerates business-to-business collaboration. That all translates to lower cost of ownership and competitive advantage in the internet economy.
What does a “pure internet” architecture really mean? Very simply, it is an architecture that completely leverages internet standards such as Hypertext Markup Language (HTML), Extensible Markup Language (XML), and Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP). PeopleSoft Internet Architecture is the foundation for PeopleSoft 8—pure internet applications with the look and feel of leading web sites and robust integration technology so information can flow seamlessly between you and your trading partners’ systems.
When your organization encounters rapid changes, you need to flexibly deploy and easily customize applications according to your business needs. Your systems infrastructure cannot afford to be the bottleneck as your organization adopts the business practices of the new economy. To create competitive advantage, your eBusiness foundation should enable your organization to embrace change, empower your people, and dominate your competition.
