Monetizing the Internet of Things with JD Edwards
The Internet of Things is expected to create great value in a variety of business processes across all industries. As the leading ERP system from Oracle, JD Edwards is likely to be one of the leading platforms that will be used to help companies monetize IoT applications.
Monetizing the IoT with a Little Magic
The right application integration platform with be vital to make this happen. The Magic xpi Integration Platform is a good candidate for organizations’ IoT to ERP integration needs. Utilizing standard protocol adapters included in Magic xpi such as REST, SOAP and TCP Listener, IoT events may be monitored and deployed as triggers as well as orchestrated for control. With pre-built adapters for Oracle, SAP, Microsoft Dynamics, Salesforce, SugarCRM, IBM and other popular IT systems, Magic xpi Integration Platform conforms to ERP integration standards and allows an organization to leverage IoT for profit.
More than Ever, the IoT Means Requires Robustness
As devices and sensors proliferate, IoT transaction volumes are expected to reach carrier-class and Big Data scale. Vast networks of sensors, controllers, beacons, smartphones, tablets and other devices involving millions of micro-transactions per second i will require systems using in-memory computing approaches. Magic xpi Integration Platform’s built-in In-Memory Data Grid architecture ensures a middleware messaging layer that is robust enough to keep pace with the most demanding “At Scale” scenarios for IoT. This makes Magic xpi an ideal candidate for IoT integration and monetization projects.
Proven Integrations at Work
Oracle JDE customers like visual display leader, Christie Digital, and sound solution leader, Sennheiser, and are using Magic’s integration process to automate processes and interfaces throughout their organizations. Christie Digital is using Magic to integrate and automate processes across its many Oracle and non-Oracle systems including its JD Edwards EnterpriseOne ERP system, Agile PLM, Fusion CRM, SharePoint, as well as its corporate website and a partner’s Warehouse Management System. These integrations enable Christie to speed sales process and product deliveries, to gain accurate and timely insights about production, sales and operations activities, which result in increased efficiencies and improve customer service. While Sennheiser brought in Magic xpi to integrate its Oracle JD Edwards EnterpriseOne system with its new Sugar CRM system. The seamless integration, standard interfaces across systems and ease of maintenance is making it quickly become Sennheiser’s central integration platform for all types of applications and databases.
A Central Integration Platform
With the proper integration infrastructure in place for JD Edwards, organizations can concentrate on creating the right business processes rather than on the complex technology required to create the connectivity. All this makes the Magic xpi Integration Platform an excellent choice for all your IoT and non-IoT integration efforts.
The latest Tools Release of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, Tools Release
9.1.5, is now generally available.
With our close relationship to Oracle, Steltix already has a great deal of experience of using this latest version of the JD Edwards Toolset.
We would like to invite you to test drive the new Tools Release and all it’s new features today. Please visit: http://www.steltix.com/tools for an introduction to the latest functionality or http://demo.steltix.com to get started with the new release.
The latest functionality includes:
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne releases new real-time interactive Financial Reconciliation applications. Month-end financial processing has until now involved running batch jobs to reconcile account information from numerous related tables in the General Accounting, Accounts Payable, and Accounts Receivable systems. These batch jobs typically run for hours and require significant additional time to manually review the PDF output. The new interactive Financial Reconciliation applications perform the same function in real time and allow users to work with exceptions interactively. Real-time financial reconciliation provides users with immediate feedback and enables them to address exceptions immediately instead of having to wait for reconciliation processing at the end of a month or a quarter. This feature significantly reduces the amount of time needed for period-end closing. This release delivers the following highlights:
· 7 new Real Time Financial Reconciliation applications
o Accounts to Business Units, Transactions to Account Master, Account Balance without Account Master, Transactions to Batch Header, Companies by Batch out of Balance, Batches out of Balance, and Companies out of Balance
· Performance testing with 10 million accounts and 120 million transactions using the Oracle Database In-Memory option improved the overall processing performance 120 time faster in real-time compared to the prior batch processing.
· The new applications are available at no additional cost to customers licensed to JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Financials.
· The new applications run on all platforms and databases supported by JD Edwards EnterpriseOne. However, the extreme performance improvements noted above were observed in testing with the Oracle Database In-Memory option.
· The new applications are available on a minimum Application Release of 9.1 and require a minimum Tools Release of 9.1 Update 5.
· Embedded Watchlist notifications within the new real-time Financial Reconciliation applications require a user license to One View Reporting Foundation.

Now Generally Available: JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Mobile Framework for Developing and Extending Mobile Enterprise Applications
Extending its commitment to powering the world’s increasingly mobile workforce, Oracle is announcing support for mobile development and extensibility for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Mobile Enterprise Applications.
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Mobile Framework
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Mobile Framework, in conjunction with Oracle Mobile Application Framework, addresses the challenge of simplifying mobile application development, enabling developers to securely create and deliver a more customer-specific mobile experience. JD Edwards EnterpriseOne customers can maximize IT investments and lower application development costs for enterprise mobility, using tools that enable organizations to easily build and securely extend mobile applications.
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Mobile Framework simplifies the development of mobile applications built with Oracle MAF for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne back office applications. Now customers and partners can leverage the same framework tools that enabled JD Edwards development to deliver many JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Mobile Enterprise Applications within one year. These framework tools enable customers and partners to build new mobile applications or extend existing Mobile Enterprise Applications.
Customers and partners can extend and modify existing JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Mobile Enterprise Applications by downloading Mobile Application Archives (MAA) that are now available on the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud and JD Edwards Update Center. Extensibility with Oracle Mobile Application Framework 2.0 enhancements is now available for these eighteen (18) previously released JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Mobile Enterprise Applications with more MAA coming soon.
The MAA download includes a license for the Oracle Mobile Application Framework Foundation supplying limited, but valuable change capabilities without a full-use Oracle Mobile Application Framework license. This limited license permits changes, such as signing and deploying the mobile application, and leveraging Mobile Application Management solutions to manage applications. The license also allows customers and partners to make modifications to apps, such as changing the icon and skin, adding additional fields integrated with JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, and modifying business logic.

With each Open World we continue to see incredible innovations carried out by our customers and partners. One theme that has gained a lot of traction this year is Internet of Things (IoT). Today we will take a closer look at a session that covered a live IoT story at one of our customers, co-presented with our customer, partner, and product teams. We will look at Oracle’s IoT platform and how Fusion Middleware bridges the gap between device data and enterprise applications.
IoT drives industrial innovations but also presents various challenges. For example, the lack of standardization and the lack of integration prohibit a lot of businesses from benefiting from this industrial trend. Oracle has a complete IoT platform that answers to those challenges in the following ways:
Middleware especially provides key functionalities such as real-time analysis (through our Fast Data offering), integration (delivered by SOA and BPM), security (through our Identity Management stack), and monitoring (through our WebCenter products and Mobile Application Framework).
Let us take a closer look at our customer, Superior Industries, who presented in this Open World session. Superior implemented an automatic equipment tracking and JD Edwards process automation solution with an Oracle Gold Partner, EmeraldCube Solutions. A Minnesota manufacturing company selling material-handling equipment, Superior Industries is a JD Edwards customer that faced a particular problem: they had no automated way to track machine usage and maintenance. Their manual tracking using paper, vocal communication, and manual work orders produced a number of issues: lack of accuracy, consistency, reliability and scalability. Machines were often either over-maintained or under-maintained.
To address these problems, Superior reached out to EmeraldCube, an Oracle partner who provides an IoT solution including sensor technology and a Java-embedded platform for JDE users. Their EmeraldSensor was used to track Superior’s equipment utilization and cycles via electric current monitoring; when machines need maintenance, the platform automatically creates work orders in JDE through the Assets & Maintenance module.
Superior benefits from this implementation in numerous ways.
The projected savings amount to over $80,000/year in labor costs alone, and over $100,000/year in maintenance costs.
The session concludes with a demo from Oracle’s Fusion
Middleware product management team, showing a facility monitoring scenario that
happens to closely resemble the use case from Superior. Equipment temperature
data is monitored and analyzed by Java-embedded gateways, which perform first
level of processing. Alerts are sent to the Fusion Middleware enterprise back
end to go through a second level of event processing. Business processes are
driven by these alerts. When a work order needs to be created, Fusion
Middleware also performs that automatically through JDE EnterpriseOne’s asset
management API. Meanwhile, user interactions are performed in an Oracle MAF
application, where business rules on the gateway can also be updated. Because
the gateway is smart, it can open up APIs and understand commands coming from
This session proves that IoT is no longer a catchphrase. Oracle customers are already benefiting and innovating from this revolution, and Oracle has a complete IoT platform with best-in-class technology in every level, from Java-embedded devices and gateways to middleware and applications – engineered to work together.
