If you could get one wish fulfilled to achieve a great IT
system for your company, what would it be? There’s certainly no shortage of big
ideas that are constantly being promoted and dissected in business and IT
publications, social media, online discussion groups, and blogs. Big data, the
cloud, the Internet of Things are some of the main themes energizing the
current debate, and there are, without question, some great emerging ideas and technologies
that are already driving transformation.

Still, an IT executive might be forgiven for thinking first
about the added complexity these great ideas would bring rather than the solutions
they might provide to business problems. Your IT executive might actually have
some more immediate, pressing concerns that need to be addressed before your
organization is able to launch into big data, the Internet of Things, or the
cloud. While no one can, or would want to, ignore the potential of these
technologies, many businesses deal with a pressing issue that impacts the
efficiency and cost of doing business today – the integration of their system
and applications.

Application integration or, more accurately, the lack of
integration, can be the “elephant in the room.” Businesses often work with
multiple on-premise systems and cloud applications, but at the same time are
continually driven to optimize their business processes to improve efficiency
and thereby reduce cost. Resolving this conundrum can be a challenge because:

  • Lack of integration leads to poor visibility of
    consolidated business data and information required to support business
    decisions. Lack of insight, in turn, can translate into poor or delayed
    decisions, increasing both cost and risk.
    • Integration poorly
      executed undermines productivity and compromises confidence in the
      resulting data, while still not achieving the goal of having timely access
      to data to support rapid and well-informed business decisions.
    • Having to manage disparate
      systems consumes IT and business resources and thus reduces business
      agility and the ability to be responsive to changing business conditions
      and advancing technologies. These technologies could be leveraged more quickly
      and effectively if resources were not tied up supporting the monitoring
      and maintenance of various systems.

So what is the answer then? How can your IT organization
optimize your ERP business processes today and be prepared for the technologies
of tomorrow? The answer is to think about integrations as an integral part of
any IT strategy and to consider integration capabilities of any solution or
solution set as a key part of buying and upgrade decisions.

The good news is that with JD Edwards EnterpriseOne you
already have or get a comprehensive, agile, and forward-looking integration
solution that enables you to run an efficient business today and will help you
prepare for the great solutions of tomorrow.

    solutions or can host cloud solutions for you. And as Oracle expands the technologies and
    solutions to enable easy on premise to cloud application integrations, JD
