PeopleSoft First to Support Apple Safari Browser

PeopleSoft Expands Commitment to Open Source

LAS VEGAS – May 7, 2003 – Today at its 2003 Leadership Summit, PeopleSoft
Inc. (Nasdaq: PSFT) announced that it is the first enterprise applications
vendor to announce plans to certify Apple’s open source-based Safari web
browser. This demonstrates PeopleSoft’s continued commitment to open
source software and provides choice for customers. The Safari browser
delivers the fastest web browser performance in the Mac OS X environment
and once certified will enable PeopleSoft users to be more productive.

Users of PeopleSoft applications will be able to take advantage of unique
features of Apple’s Safari including SnapBack navigation that enables a
user to step back through a transaction with a single click rather than
many. The new tabbed browsing feature will enable users to access multiple
PeopleSoft application pages in a single window, which is important in
multi-lingual call centers where a customer service agent needs access to
applications in more than one language on the same system.

“PeopleSoft is committed to open source standards – which significantly
reduce total cost of ownership,” said Rick Bergquist, chief technology
officer, PeopleSoft. “PeopleSoft customers that run PeopleSoft pure
internet applications on Safari will benefit from faster load speeds and
increased performance.”

“PeopleSoft’s commitment to Mac OS X and open standards will attract a
larger number of enterprise customers than closed proprietary technology,”
said Ron Okamoto, Apple’s vice president of worldwide developer relations.
“Mac OS X’s UNIX-based architecture and Safari’s revolutionary features
provide the stability, performance and usability needed for web-based
enterprise applications. ”

“PeopleSoft applications play an important part in our computing
environment,” said Annie Stunden, Chief Information Officer, University of
Wisconsin-Madison. “We have a large number of Mac users and better access
to PeopleSoft applications with increased productivity is great news for

Apple Safari browser support will be provided in the fourth quarter of
2003. This deepens PeopleSoft’s commitment to the Mac platform and will
complement its existing support for Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X.
