Executive Summary

The PeopleSoft Enterprise Web Server and Application Server have been using the Unicode character encoding scheme since the early 2000s on PeopleSoft Version 8, but the option of using a Unicode Database Server was not available for System z customers until DB2 for z/OS V8.1. Starting in 2005 Oracle began to investigate the performance of the PeopleSoft Enterprise Payroll application in a Unicode database environment as some of their customers were considering a global implementation of their Payroll application and a Unicode database seemed to be the best approach if the performance proved to be acceptable.
