Back in March, JD Edward’s Group Vice President, Lyle Ekdahl, mandated that his organization get focused on enabling our customers to “Get To The 9’s”. Lyle formed a team known as the new Upgrade Projects and Technology Office – I am part of this new team focused on delivering tools and technologies that reduce time, expense and risk of upgrading. Our goal is not only to give you back your weekends but make your go-live weekend a non-event.
This new team is already delivering the first enhancement to the upgrade process for the EnterpriseOne product line by releasing a white paper detailing the steps to drastically decrease the time it takes to run specific table conversions during the upgrade process. The simple steps outlined in the white paper have already had a positive impact for many customers in reducing their downtime for a go-live from 3 to 5 days to less than 24 hours. Take advantage of these steps, get back your weekends, and stay tuned for even more improvements in the upgrade process!
