Oracle and Rimini Street Litigation
Forbes on December 6, 2018
In October, we wrote about Rimini Street (a third-party support provider for PeopleSoft) and its Australian STP certification. Now, news about the legal battle between Oracle and Rimini Street that goes back to 2010 is popping up in the media. The point is that Rimini Street violated the Oracle’s copyrights. As a result, Oracle received more than $100 million from Rimini Street via these legal proceedings. Oracle published a note related to this case.
Don’t put your software investment at risk with disreputable third-party support vendors like Rimini Street. Get the protection you need with Oracle and take advantage of trusted, fully featured security and comprehensive support.
The legal proceedings also have brought to light the fact that Rimini Street’s discount services don’t include software security patches, a standard security practice Rimini Street founder and CEO Seth Ravin called “outdated” during his trial testimony.
Academic senators discuss PeopleSoft advising notes
CSU SIGNAL on December 6, 2018
It’s time for PeopleSoft news from California State University. Speaker of the Faculty and Chair of the Academic Senate opened Stan State’s Academic Senate meeting on December 4. During the meeting, staff members discussed advising notes that are now available in PeopleSoft, budget priorities, changes to ASCSU presidential search process, and changes to how students give opinions on their professors teaching.
Many professors with advising status will be glad to know that they can put advising notes directly into PeopleSoft.
Students are not able to currently see these advising notes, but still information is considered a public record.
Although it is true that students can not see this information, a great place to put notes that you do want students to see is in Stan planner.
Dr. Nainby (Communication Studies)
Students will soon see a change in the way that they give feedback on their professors.
