Delivering Real-time JD Edwards Analytics with Oracle Database In-Memory

By Ward Quarles - Oracle JD Edwards Product Strategy Director 


Are your internal and external constituents demanding instantaneous information? With the availability of Oracle Database 12c In-Memory, world-class technologies are available for JD Edwards’s users. Leverage optimized in-memory capabilities across applications, middleware, databases, and systems to transform your hyper-connected, mobile and social business into a “real time enterprise” and revolutionize business insight, communications and collaborative business processes.

Oracle Database In-Memory transparently extends the power of Oracle Database 12c to enable organizations to discover business insights and analytics in real-time while simultaneously increasing transactional performance.  With Oracle Database In-Memory, users can get immediate answers to business questions that previously took hours to obtain and business insight never before possible.

Can every JD Edwards customer benefit from in-memory? Your enterprises will quickly make data-driven decisions, respond instantly to customer demands, and continuously optimize business processes to maximize profitability. JD Edwards customers who have deployed applications on Oracle database technology can dramatically expand the value of these applications by delivering instant answers to any business question. Consumers expect immediate response and an “always online” style of interaction. Oracle Database In-Memory, an option to Oracle Database, makes these desires a reality.

What changes are required to adopt the new technology? Oracle Database In-Memory delivers leading-edge performance without restricted functionality, and without increasing complexity or risk. Deploying Oracle Database In-Memory with virtually any existing Oracle Database-compatible application is as easy as flipping a switch—no application changes are required.

Benefits for JD Edwards customers include:

1. Faster Decision-Making – Oracle Database In-Memory implements leading-edge columnar data processing to accelerate analytics, increasing the number of data values analyzed per second while providing answers instantly that would take minutes or hours to obtain.

2. Easily Adopted – Existing Oracle database applications simply need to identify the data to place in-memory to run dramatically faster. It couldn’t be easier.  Your JD Edwards application developers don’t need to change the application or learn new programming techniques to adopt Oracle Database In-Memory.

With in-memory solutions, you will run your business differently, ask more questions and change your business processes resulting in a quicker understanding of real time data. Iterative analysis that would historically take hours now takes minutes or seconds to process. JD Edwards applications can access strategic data instantaneously.  And it is Cloud ready. 

As soon as Oracle Database 12c In-Memory becomes generally available, we will post again with links to specific JD Edwards and Oracle Database 12c In-Memory documents.

Part 1 of 5 By Lyle Ekdahl: JDE 5G – What is it, and do I even care?

Part 1 of 5

JDE 5G – What is it, and do I even care?

If you attended Quest Collaborate 2014 this year and caught the JD Edwards keynote session, you heard the term JDE 5G used for the first time in a public forum. I used the term to describe JD Edwards’ approach to the market, our products and our organizational processes. The fact is that we are at the genesis of Oracle’s JD Edwards’ fifth generation!

So what are the 5 generations you ask?

Generations 1 through 5 mirror the major corporate stages and product changes that we have gone through during our 37 + year history. Let’s review them:

1G – JD Edwards as an independent software company from inception through to a publically traded company on the stock exchange  (Ok I’ll admit this is a very long generation, but stay with me.)

2G – JD Edwards as a set of product lines after acquisition by PeopleSoft (by contrast a short generation)

3G –JD Edwards product division in its early days after being acquired by Oracle

4G – Game changing Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne and Oracle’s JD Edwards World software releases 9.x introduced to the market 

5G – Is right NOW!

With that brief review of our history, what’s really important, what really matters to you is the NOW of it.  Because right now disruptive technologies are dramatically changing business, and we plan to lead in the delivery of next generation ERP solutions that leverage technology to position your business for success and leadership.

So what’s different now? If you really think about it, in many ways the processes you have used in business have remained pretty static, and we have applied technology to those stable processes over many years (since the beginning of the industrial revolution).  The business you were in and the processes did not dramatically change because of technology.

What has changed in the recent past is core ERP has become a commoditized offering, with some innovations in the areas of:

Targeted big data applications and related analytics Select mobile apps on select mobile devices

Limited real time collaboration with employees & trading partners

Improved user experience

IT beginning to support BYOD

Organizations embracing cloud

JD Edwards has demonstrated that we can and do support these innovations of modern ERP – and often, we are leading and innovating well ahead of the crowd.

We are also acutely aware of the new advances in technology and the implications for us. In response, we have formulated our 5th generation vision for JD Edwards.

I envision the future transformation of the current state of ERP where technology will literally shape the future of business in new and transformative ways. This future state is the dynamic intersection of processes technology, product and people in ways not possible before the digital overdrive era that we are entering.

How so you ask? Traditionally technology has been layered on top of existing business processes to speed them up and enable them linearly.  In 5G, technology, processes, product and people truly become entwined, more systemically……to enable never before realized benefits and emergent value.

The new technologies combined with a new generation of workers have and will continue to drive dramatic changes, completely reshaping how we interact, and more importantly ENGAGE with our employees, partners and customers. 

Part 2 of this series will explore in more detail what business requirements 5G will address and what the resulting world might look like.

Continuing the commitment to rapid and predictable deployments of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, Oracle announces the general availability of Oracle VM templates for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Application release 9.1 Update 2 and Tools release 9.1 Update 4.4.

These templates can be used with Oracle VM for x86, on the Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud, and on the Oracle Database Machine.

The templates can be installed into an Oracle VM for x86 system running on standard x86 servers, the Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud, and the Oracle Database Appliance as a composite “all-in-one” system. The database can be deployed as a fully preconfigured VM template, or it can be deployed to a preexisting database server, for example, the Oracle Exadata Database Machine or the Oracle Database Appliance.

This latest set of templates includes the following applications and technology components:
