Continuing the Applications investment: JD Edwards User Experience Enhancements

By Misha Vaughan, Oracle Applications User Experience

Do you run your business on JD Edwards?


Given the significant investment customers have made in JD Edwards, I wanted to find out where the JD Edwards team was in regards to user experience -- both for their Tools and applications. Chris Walsh, Senior Principal Product Manager, and Madhuri Kolhatkar, Director of Customer User Experience Management, have a lot to say about that topic.


I don’t want to reveal too much before OpenWorld, but let’s just say that catching a few sessions will be well worth your time.


The overall user experience theme for recent Tools releases centered on small changes with big gains. So there has been no wholesale revamping of the user interface, but rather a thoughtful analysis of the daily pain points experienced by users.


Chris and Madhuri say customers will see the value in rich, interactive components like import/export, the ADF Text Editor, and dynamic grid modifications – in Chris’ words: “Customers are doing backflips for these things.”


You can also expect an emphasis on user experience in the future releases of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne. I would highly recommend that you check out a few of these sessions to get a better grasp of recent user experience enhancements, and also a glimpse of what’s to come.
