PeopleSoft DPK Mastery

Step by Step Mastery from Novice to Expert

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.

Who should take this course?

A few years back, PeopleSoft Administrators were responsible for installing, updating and maintaining the PeopleSoft applications. Now with PeopleSoft DPKs, Oracle has made it super-easy for anyone to install, update and maintain PeopleSoft applications.

In fact, many organizations are now making use of PeopleSoft Developers and PeopleSoft Functional resources for the roles that the PS Admins were supposed to do. Hence, to summarize the question on who needs to know DPK? Answer is....

  • DPK is an absolutely-must skill for PeopleSoft Administrators.

This course covers each and every detail you need to know about DPKs. So, it does not matter if you're a PeopleSoft Admin or Developer or Functional consultant -- we have you covered. If you're new to DPKs, go through all the videos and lecture notes and if you're aware of DPKs, it does not harm to do a refresher otherwise just skip the sections or lectures you're aware of.
