Another PeopleSoft executive exits

Two weeks after the firing of CEO Craig Conway, PeopleSoft announces the departure of Ram Gupta, VP of Products and Technology. PeopleSoft is not revealing whether the exit is voluntary.

When Conway was fired, PeopleSoft announced the return of founder David Duffield as CEO and Aneel Bhusri as vice chairman, to oversee "product strategy." At the time, I noted some confusing comments from Duffield about "a technology vision that's been absent for a period of time." The departure of Gupta, whether voluntary or forced, would be consistent with that.

Computerworld has more, with speculation by various analysts.
