"PeopleSoft continues to embrace open standards such as WSRP to allow customers to effectively address their portal and Web services integration challenges."
As a founding member of the OASIS Technical Committee on WSRP, PeopleSoft is actively involved in refining the WSRP standard as well as collaborating with other vendors to help resolve the inability to interoperate across multiple portal platforms and applications.
