We are excited to announce a new course, Mastering PeopleSoft Administration: Deployment Packages. This course will teach you how to make Deployment Packages (DPK) work for you. We begin the course by exploring the different components that make up the DPK, how you can configure the DPK, and how to enhance it. Then, the course shows you how to extend the DPK beyond it’s current functionality and use it to build servers exactly the way you need them.
Out of the box, the DPK is great for building demo environments. But most organizations have requriements for their environments that go beyond what the DPK can do. Those requirements can include custom signon pages, deploying additional software, and more. Learning how to use the DPK to deploy those requirements as you build environments can significantly benefit you. With the DPK, environment and server builds are repeatable, consistent and fast.
