Spotlight Series Video on Elasticsearch and PeopleSoft

We've just posted a new Spotlight Series video on using Elasticsearch with PeopleSoft.  This video is the first in a series, and covers the following topics:

  • What is Elasticsearch and why did PeopleSoft move to it for our search engine?
  • What releases of PeopleTools and PeopleSoft applications are needed to deploy Elasticsearch?
  • How do customers obtain it?  Are there any licensing implications?
  • What are the advantages of Elasticsearch?

I addition to these points, the main purpose of the video is to provide an overview of the process for deploying Elasticsearch with your PeopleSoft environments.  We cover the overall process, and describe the scenarios that may apply to your enterprise.

We will be releasing additional videos on Elasticsearch with PeopleSoft in short order.  These videos will cover the following topics in greater detail:

  • Transitioning to Elasticsearch from Oracle's Secure Enterprise Search
  • Initial installation of Elasticsearch
  • Administration and maintenance of Elasticsearch

All these videos will be posted on the PeopleSoft YouTube channel.
