Following the recent $10.3 billion takeover of PeopleSoft by Oracle Corp., Microsoft Corp. said that it would offer a migration program for users of the PeopleSoft Enterprise, PeopleSoft EnterpriseOne and PeopleSoft World. The migration program provides migration technology, price discounts on Microsoft Business Solutions software and services, and migration guidance. The program, available through June 22, provides customers with a 25 percent license discount, a 25 percent discount on a Microsoft Business Solutions support and enhancement plan for the first year, migration planning guides, and data migration tools. The program is available for all four MBS applications. The company also recommended that PeopleSoft World and PeopleSoft EnterpriseOne customers consider MBS's Axapta, and that PeopleSoft Enterprise customers in the United States and Canada consider MBS Great Plains. "Businesses that use PeopleSoft technology are facing some difficult choices today, and we're committed to providing them with the best options for moving forward," said Doug Burgum, senior vice president at Microsoft. "Today's announcement is evidence of our ongoing commitment to working closely with PeopleSoft customers and partners to help them migrate to Microsoft Business Solutions in a smooth, cost-effective manner, and on a schedule that best accommodates their business needs." The migration program is available now through Microsoft resellers worldwide.
