We have successfully used PeopleSoft Financials and SCM for over 15 years. It meets our business needs and is easy to use.
Ease of use, meets our needs.
I can't think of anything.
Understand the requirements because we are going to make sure you meet them!
Overall support very good.

The software and implementation partners largely have delivered but changing business processes has continued to challenge. Moving from a legacy system to a more modern system exposed our shortcommings in training and change management. We also should have vetted requirements that dictated customizations and attempted to limit their impacts on upgrades.
Do not underestimate the negative impact you can have on a business process when delivering a "new" or "better" solution.
For us, moving away from a homegrown solution provides many benefits. We can rely on an external network of resources to help us maintain and build the software. We can retire our existing outdated system. And we can more easily integrate with bolt on automation software.
Customizations block upgrade paths and require maintenance.
Provide more detailed insight into the impacts of customizations.
Train users upfront, during, and at the completion of the project Limit customizations to mission critical business processes
We stay one release behind the most current to minimize exposure to bugs and wet paint issues. Coupled with a well established software suite this has minimized our need for support. In my opinion, the best support is not needing it.

It was very challenging going from mainframe to an ERP system. Many of the tasks were cut short and this has left us with on-going issues. Also, the software is filled with bugs challenging us further. Applying patches have not been easy.
Keep your processes as simple as possible.
It keeps me employed. I like the ability to customize it.
Some fields are derived and some fields are stored dynamically. This makes it very challenging to report and customize.
Change the integration with our Inventory software
The service and support from PeopleSoft has been adequate. We don't take advantage of it enough.

Have worked with Oracle products for 15-20 years. There have always been challenges dealing with problems, getting enhancements from Oracle on a timely basis, support issues, etc.
Talk to existing customers as references and find out their experience. Also, be careful that all your requirements are met by the product.
I like that we can do customizations in PeopleSoft and make the application handle specific business processes for my organization.
Basic functionality is not always the way we would like and enhancement requests can take years for Oracle to deliver, if at all.
Develop their own technology instead of purchasing rivals. Oracle has many products which compete against each other and also tend to make some customer investments obsolete.
Generally satisfied that PeopleSoft delivers the basic functionality we need. Starting over now, I would look to cloud applications and compare functionality across vendors. Customizations are still vital in our environment so would be careful to see that those business functions could be handled.
Support can be tedious and support analysts are highly resistant to phone or Webex. Cases can stretch over multiple days/weeks while the analyst only responds once a day.

The go live decision was made too soon. This was an internal push with an arbitrary deadline.
Plan for manageable goals - ie.. not all contracts will be included, there may be time delays, new internal policies may need to be created to build the system.
The version control is fantastic. Tracking for creation, collaboration and approval are great. Storage is much improved.
Too many bugs during the go live initial phase.
Sold us on the idea of an out of the box purchase vs the number of customizations that we ended up requesting.
Better change management internally. Frustration was higher than it needed to be during the first year.
It is difficult to assess - if the lead internal staff person had been someone else it may have been more positive.

Oracle provided good documentation. The product is costly to customize.
Carefully chose an implementer.
Out of the box functionality and user defined configurations.
User configurations can break integrations without warning.
Separate effort to implement the BI portion of the project.
Bring more options to the table, particularly cloud vendors.
You have to pay for these services!
Oracle tends to oversell their integration capability.

The product is robust and meets most of our needs. For the remaining needs, it is extensible.
Explore all capabilities and evaluate equivalent Cloud options.
We would more thoroughly evaluate the new features of the product and explore adding those feature with the upgrade instead of waiting for the next opportune time.
