PeopleSoft Deployment Packages or DPKs are probably the best new PeopleSoft feature in the recent years and are revolutionizing the process of installation, upgrade and maintenance of PeopleSoft applications.
PeopleSoft DPKs were first introduced with PeopleTools 8.55 and have really become powerful, stable and easy to use over the years, especially with PeopleTools 8.57 release. PeopleSoft Deployment Packages cut down the repetitive tasks, provide consistent methods and processes, decrease the need for human intervention and enable automation -- thereby making you more efficient and productive!
With PeopleTools 8.57, DPKs have become the primary and preferred methods of installation, upgrade and maintenance of many PeopleSoft products and older method of using Virtual CDs (VCD) is no longer available.
With the release of PeopleTools 8.57 in January 2019, PeopleSoft Deployment Packages a.k.a DPKs are the only mode for installation and upgrades of PeopleSoft products. Older approach of Virtual CDs (VCDs) is no longer allowed.
