At a time of rapid change in technology and business, maintaining a balance between stability and agility is essential. Even as we pursue innovation with new disruptive technologies and business models, we must sustain what works and what keeps the lights on.
JD Edwards, specifically in our EnterpriseOne 9.2 release, provides an ERP platform to help your business navigate this duality of sustainability and innovation for the digital economy.
For this release we have focused in on three main areas:
- Transformational technologies that enable SMART solutions – Strategic, Mobile, Architected for Real-Time.
- Enablement of deep Industry specific capability.
- And Choice – because we believe that the problems and opportunities that you face have a matrix of potential solutions: How you strategically go about addressing that space can be a source of differentiation.
Many JD Edwards customers have already downloaded this new release and are well into their implementations. Our support organization has helped hundreds of customers download the new release and several customers are already live on 9.2.
What should customers expect from Release 9.2?
For JD Edwards, transformation requires a SMART approach that is Strategic, Mobile, and Real-Time providing the capability to fundamentally alter business processes and change the way organizations interact with customers, partners, and employees. We are enabling broad collaboration and interactions with hardware-to-hardware and machine-to-machine communications. As a result of these transformations, you increase digital density, reduce system friction, and provide more agility in your labor and capital mix.
JD Edwards’ philosophy is that industry capability is a differentiator, that industry matters, and that YOUR industry matters! Lower-level business processes are necessary to sustain any company. The basic solutions that you need and that are fundamental to industry best practices are the same or similar for every company in the industry. In contrast, industry depth at a functional and technical level that can be leveraged, uniquely configured and extended provides you with a unique competitive advantage. While JD Edwards does provide a broad ERP platform, it is one that is informed by the select industries that we focus on. For all the specific industry capabilities that we released in EnterpriseOne 9.2, we have worked with focus groups of customers in those specific industries to help us validate our hypotheses and shape the product.
The JD Edwards EnterpriseOne platform and products offer a large number of options for personalization, extension, and co-existence with other applications, including Oracle Cloud applications, to support agile business solutions that meet customers’ unique business needs. JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Release 9.2 provides customers with the choices to run their business their way.
Our cloud computing strategy offers JD Edwards customers choice and a balance between sustainability and innovation. JD Edwards customers will continue to derive value from their on-premise technology investments and at the same time can explore a variety of cloud computing models. We are providing offerings in all of these deployment models enabling you to choose your path to the cloud.
