“The phenomenal rate at which our customers are adopting JD Edwards EnterpriseOne One View Reporting proves they are looking for more visualization of ERP data and better ways of seeing transactional and operational data to help them make strong decisions. It’s a real-time solution, so end users and individual contributors can slice and dice live information, creating their own reports in the course of their working day.” —Lyle Ekdahl, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Oracle’s JD Edwards product family

“I’ve really realized the benefits of having one centralized ERP system. These changes will provide us the flexibility and scalability to successfully manage another facility from where we already are.”—James Caldwell, Director of Information Technology and Risk Control, Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort

“Ultimately, we decided on Oracle, and on Oracle’s JD Edwards solutions, because we thought they provided the most-robust answers with the most flexibility. JD Edwards EnterpriseOne is a really powerful platform that benefits from a lot of Oracle acquisitions—including Demantra for demand planning, which is really best in class.” —Daniel Lubetzky, KIND Healthy Snacks Founder and CEO

“With the newer [JD Edwards] technology, we were able to put in new hardware in a two-day period, and nobody on the front end even knew, because there was no downtime. We were able to do that on the fly.” —Tom Smith, Director of IT, FinishMaster

“The designers of the JD Edwards system really had it figured out at the database level. The database and the tight integration of modules always worked in JD Edwards, and they work to this day. We don’t have to integrate a lot of new pieces into the system because they’re already there.” —Brad Stimson, Database Administrator, Graniterock
