Popeye is depicted as capable of creating solutions to problems that everyone else thought were insurmountable. After consuming his superfood, spinach, solutions were possible because of his superhuman strength. Will the Internet of Things become superfood to our businesses?
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the next frontier in technology and business development. JD Edwards customers are exploring IoT technologies that allow them to capture, transmit and analyze an unprecedented amount of data, much of which was trapped in their ERP systems. More importantly, these customers are looking for ways to use this data to improve or even radically change their business, and to combine operations technology with information technology to learn something new. The IoT could supercharge any vertical market using JD Edwards EnterpriseOne applications.
Oracle’s JD Edwards Internet of Things platform delivers an integrated, secure, and comprehensive solution. Just as JD Edwards EnterpriseOne applications help organizations improve their business results, data collected from an organizations business process using an IoT strategy enables organizations to further extend value to their company assets, manufacturing operations, projects and services, and supply chain.
It’s easy to see how an integrated, connected JD Edwards system leveraging IoT technology will create a competitive advantage. Maybe even more compelling than the leafy greens that gave Popeye his strength.
