Triple Play

After three issues, the JD Edwards special issue is really hitting its stride. But the strong showing of this magic-numbered edition is not a result of numerological forces. It’s the consequence of the hard work and commitment of people throughout Oracle’s JD Edwards community. And it’s those people I want to thank for their support.

First off, much appreciation is due to the JD Edwards team for continued innovation within the JD Edwards products. In the past year, the team has released a major update to Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne solutions, debuted a significant new reporting technology, and evolved the products for next-generation computing platforms and form factors. It’s much easier to make an interesting publication when you have something interesting to write about, and you’ll see in the stories that follow that the JD Edwards team has really delivered.

Second, the partner community has shown amazing support for this publication. Through their long-standing commitment to the JD Edwards product lines, partners understand the nuances of JD Edwards solutions and can deliver real value to the customers they share with Oracle. That value is demonstrated through the access partners have given us to their customers’ stories, several of which are included in this special edition.

Third, JD Edwards customers represent the real magic of enterprise IT. After all the functional data sheets are reviewed and the Microsoft PowerPoint presentations delivered, it’s the business results that shine through. Customers’ trust that Profit is a worthy forum for sharing these results makes the whole endeavor possible in the first place.

JD Edwards customers represent the real magic of enterprise IT.

The end result: more stories, more partner content, and a new look for the Profit JD Edwards Special Issue 2012. If we can duplicate this same formula moving forward, future editions will have the same impact.
