One of the features many don’t know about in PeopleSoft 9.2 is the PeopleSoft Update Manager (PUM). Essentially, this changes the way all maintenance code and new functionality is being delivered. Oracle’s PeopleSoft Technology Blog has a nice rundown on what the PUM is:
Oracle and the PeopleSoft team have changed the way all maintenance and functionality is being delivered starting in PeopleSoft 9.2 using the new PeopleSoft Update Manager (PUM).
