It's all about options... World A9.4, released earlier this year, brought several long-awaited enhancements. The single most talked about enhancement is the new Expense Management module that allows companies to manage expenses within JD Edwards.
You probably already know that Oracle includes the Standard Edition (SE) of their database as part of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne (JDE E1) licenses. Currently, Oracle SE allows customers to use four CPU sockets and unlimited cores. Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) is free with SE as long as you don't have more than four sockets in the cluster. While SE lacks many of the advanced features that Enterprise Edition (EE) contains, most JDE E1 clients find that it's more than sufficient to power their enterprise.
With the evolution of the microprocessor, organizations have evolved in the way they handle their supply chain. This can be seen in the technological advances in computer systems, transportation logistics, as well as global communications, all of which are dependent upon the microprocessor. Many organizations rely on the advances within the computer, voice and data communication systems as the lifeblood of their businesses. This growth, along with the internet and World Wide Web, led to the evolution of E-Commerce, the buying and selling of goods and services electronically. Today this process takes on many forms; business to business (B2B), business to consumer (B2C), business to government (B2G), machine to machine (M2M) and more recently consumer to consumer (C2C) using auction sites such as eBay. While B2C may be the most "known" form to many individuals, businesses today rely on all forms of electronic movement of information, goods and services in order to efficiently run their businesses.
In a recent Gartner survey, approximately 47% of respondents said they would be moving their ERP to the cloud in the next 5 years with 26% moving in the next 3 years. What would be the benefits of moving JD Edwards EnterpriseOne to the cloud and how can it impact your business?
Here are some of the key reasons that companies are moving their ERP systems to the cloud:
It's time for us "old-dogs" to learn some new tricks! I am talking about finally making the leap to using RPG IV/ILE instead of old school RPG. Why? As Oracle brings new functionality into World, they are moving the base code to RPG IV/ILE. This change has been met with several mixed reactions from "Woo-Hoo" to shouting expletives to Oracle.
Software as a Service (SaaS) is a software distribution model where applications are hosted by a vendor and made available to customers typically over the Internet. As Gartner points out, SaaS is software owned, delivered and managed remotely by service providers. These providers deliver software based on common code and data definitions that is consumed in a one-to-many model by contracted customers at any time on a pay-for-use or subscription. On-premises software carries a one-time licensing model, SaaS access is frequently sold using a subscription, with users paying an ongoing fee to use. Some providers charge a flat rate for unlimited access to some or all of the application's features, while others charge varying rates based on usage.
