Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Release 9.1 Update 2 Makes Life Easier for Growing Midsize Customers

by Jim Lein | Sr. Principal Product Marketing Director | Oracle Midsize Programs | @JimLein

Imagine taking a picture of your hotel bill with your smartphone and uploading it as an attachment to an expense report you are creating on the same device. That scenario is now a reality for Oracle JD Edwards EnterpriseOne customers.

Last month at Oracle OpenWorld, Oracle announced the general availability of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Release 9.1. Update 2. This update offers great new capabilities and once again validates Oracle’s commitment to enhancing the popular product line. Oracle’s continuous delivery model delivers more JD Edwards EnterpriseOne enhancements and new modules on a much more frequent basis—months, not years apart. Most of the enhancements delivered in the update had previously been made available to customers as they were developed, via ESU’s (Electronic Service Updates) provided within customer support agreements.

In recent years, the majority of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne customers have upgraded to the latest version of the software and adopted a "configuration over customization" deployment approach. Thus, it’s now much easier, less costly, and less risky for those customers to stay current with their software investments. Oracles JD Edwards EnterpriseOne retains its reputation as a Top Tier, low risk option for both growing midsize companies and global enterprise organizations.

Mobile Device Integration Highlights:

  • No more misplacing crumpled up receipts: Take a picture of your hotel bill with your smartphone and upload it as an attachment to an expense report you are creating on the same device.
  • Less time in the office for field service and project professionals: Enter your service time for a job via your smartphone instead of having to head back to the office late in the day.

User Interface/Productivity Improvement

  • Fewer clicks to a deeper dive: Drill down from a One View Reporting screen to source data or other information such as a supplier profile
Deeper Industry functionality
  • Focus on exceptions: Belly up to the new inventory reconciliation workbench to focus more on what’s out of whack and less on what’s running smoothly
  • Spend less time running around the warehouse: Take advantage of improved putaway and picking processes for Warehouse Management
  • Spend less time keying in data: Deploy the new integration to Oracle Value Chain Planning for Configured items
