Compiling PeopleCode

One of the very useful features in Application Designer is the ability to compile the PeopleCode for a project.  You can select Tools -> Compile Project PeopleCode from the Application Designer menu to do so.  This is particularly useful for larger projects or when you are validating a project that has just been imported into an environment for the first time.  If, for example,  someone forgot to include all of the needed PeopleCode for things to work (maybe forgetting to include a needed application package in the project definition),  then compiling the project and finding out about the problem immediately is better than hearing about later when a runtime error happens. I prefer to do the Compile Project PeopleCode as

Data Breaches

Data security is a serious matter. Every day, millions of attempts are made to compromise network security. Hackers try to gain unauthorized access to networks across the nation, hoping to acquire personal data to use for financial gain or other such motives. Spam e-mails number in the tens of millions, and that’s simply for a single network. These numbers are magnified tremendously when the data includes multiple networks and users. Colleges and universities across the nation are highly susceptible to these attacks. They are ideal victims since these institutions have access to all of the students’ personal data, including social security numbers, dates of birth and credit card numbers. It costs thousands of dollars to protect against these attacks, and

How to Prevent Student Grade Hacking in PeopleSoft

Larry just posted a YouTube video that describes how our ERP Firewall product’s 2-Factor Authentication feature can help prevent students from hacking into PeopleSoft Campus Solutions and changing grades. The video contains specifics on how 2-Factor Authentication works. Larry created the YouTube video based on what was reported recently at Purdue University where students are facing felony charges for hacking into secure systems and changing grades (we don’t know whether the Purdue incident involved PeopleSoft). Apparently, hacking to change grades is not uncommon: Florida A&M University Cal State – Fresno Miami University

10 Years On

Today marks the 10 year anniversary since Larry Ellison changed the enterprise software landscape by announcing that Oracle was launching a $5.1 billion takeover bid for PeopleSoft.  Of course, we all know how that turned out;  PeopleSoft dug in it’s heels for 18 months and managed to get the price raised to over $10 billion before finally giving in.  Oracle turned into an acquisition machine, rolling up close to 100 different companies.  And new companies, such as Workday, popped up to start competing in enterprise applications.   What has happened to PeopleSoft 10 years later?  Strangely enough,  PeopleSoft is doing quite well.  Continued investment by Oracle in the PeopleSoft product line has resulted in customers continuing to keep up with
