PeopleSoft is set to release new business-analytics software that helps companies simplify the process of business planning and gives them a forward-looking view of their organization. The company, which makes software that manages a wide range of business activities including a company's marketing, financials and human resources needs, expects to make the new analytics software available in the fall.
Analytics software is typically used to track and improve business performance. The company said its latest application will help companies better manage budgeting and planning year round. Pricing was not disclosed. PeopleSoft, which earlier this week posted strong first-quarter results, said the product will be available for testing late summer.
