We in the JD Edwards organization are thrilled that Profit chose JD Edwards not only as the first product line to focus on but to continue to work with us on what is becoming an annual issue. We hope you will find this issue enjoyable with case studies and profiles on varied JD Edwards customers and partners.
We are particularly proud of our cover story on United Streetcar, a JD Edwards customer who has reignited light rail manufacturing in the United States. Chandra Brown, president of United Streetcar, is committed to establishing a U.S.-based supply chain that sources at least 60 percent of manufacturing materials from domestic suppliers. “Streetcars, like light rail, are 100 percent electric, so it’s zero emissions. They are incredibly green,” stated Brown.
Another interesting read is an interview with editor in chief of Profit, Aaron Lazenby, and our group vice president and general manager of Oracle’s JD Edwards, Lyle Ekdahl. Lyle discusses his concept of a “New Era of ERP” reflecting the pace at which market volatility and technological advances are transforming business.
The issue is filled with other case studies detailing the growth in our product line and community. Thank you to the team at Profit, our wonderful customers who participated and the advertising partners that made this issue possible.
We have heard from our customers and partners that you like to see JD Edwards specific stories and advertising – well here you are for the second year and counting. I’d love to hear your reaction to the issue, and your ideas for the next.
