Seven questions we're commonly asked about JD Edwards
What is the current support structure for JD Edwards from Oracle?
Oracle has guaranteed ongoing support for JDE EnterpriseOne (also called JDE E1) customers on version 9.2 until at least December 2031.
Release 9.2 allows customers to access all the product innovation and enhancements (including new features/modules) which are available under Oracle's continuous delivery model. This included over 80 updates in 2020 alone. Full details and key FAQs are here.
N.B. All releases of JDE prior to 9.2 only have Sustaining Support (a lifetime support level available for as long as the support fees are paid). Under Sustaining Support, you miss out on all the new fixes, which is just one of many compelling reasons to talk to Fusion5 about upgrading to 9.2.
Is it easy to keep my JD Edwards ERP software up to date?
Yes, it is. With JDE E1 release 9.2, Oracle introduced a new continuous delivery model. Rather than big product upgrades every few years that require significant upgrade projects for the business, the JDE product team instead release monthly updates that can be rolled up into annual Tools and Application updates. This reduces the time and costs related to keeping JDE up to date and allows you to tailor a regular cadence that works for your organisation.
You can also customise and quantify your testing and training requirements by utilising ERP Insights.
What’s new with JD Edwards EnterpriseOne?
With release 9.2 (both application and tools) JDE meets the demands for a modern and simplified user experience, while seamlessly integrating with the digital technologies you need to drive digital transformations. Its innovative approach allows your company to work faster, increase productivity and ultimately achieve more with options like Orchestration, Mobility, Personalisation (UDOs) and Simplification.
Since 9.2 was released in October 2015, there have been over 100 updates to the application. You can find the latest updates here.
Can I enhance my JD Edwards software?
Yes, you can. There are many inbuilt capabilities with JDE release 9.2 that allow you to improve the user experience, enable digital transformation, and modernise and simplify operations. And you get new functionality like Lease Accounting, Project Status Inquiry, Joint Venture Management and Work Order activity rules.
Plus, there are many integration options with JD Edwards that allow most external solutions to connect via APIs. Alternatively, you can look at an integration layer like Campfire.
Is it possible to empower my users with JDE?
Yes, it sure is. Oracle uses the concept of ‘citizen developer’ to help you reduce your JDE solution TCO and technical debt.
The user experience options and user-defined objects (UDOs) enable your employees to extend and personalise JDE for more efficiency, and to enjoy a better experience without the need to change code. Items like notifications, watch lists, saved queries, form personalisation and extensions, grid formats, etc., are all ways that you can put the power of JD Edwards in the hands of those that know what’s needed from the solution, so they can streamline and automate your business processes.
Can I migrate my JDE instance to be hosted on the cloud?
Yes, you can. And on your terms. A cloud-hosted ERP system allows you to enjoy the benefits of an agile, automated cloud deployment while keeping control of your deployment options to meet unique business needs. There's no need to maintain an IT department, and the solution cost goes from being a CAPEX (capital expense) to a predictable OPEX (operating expense) that your accountant will love you for. So, you can extend your JDE solution via Platform as a Service (PaaS) or Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) whether it’s public or private cloud.
What is Orchestration and the Orchestrator Studio?
Orchestration in JD Edwards allows you to collect, filter, analyse and act on real-time data stored inside your JDE application or from an external source. This allows you to use the Orchestrator Studio on your main business processes to reduce human involvement, introduce automation, integrate with external systems, cloud services and devices while reducing both errors and costs.
The Studio allows someone (like a business analyst) to quickly create, test and deploy an orchestration to your JDE system within hours all by using the built-in recording functionality.
