GENIUS is an ever-evolving application that ties together many different essential monitoring functions. Some of the key components of GENIUS are: real-time monitoring of JD Edwards environments, custom application monitoring for both JD Edwards and non JD Edwards applications, thresholds and alerting on these monitors, as well as metric gathering and analytics from these monitors. The client portal provides a one stop view into this information, and the Monthly Performance Report provides monthly, summarized snapshots of your environment.
Real-time monitoring of JDE environments includes monitoring of many common infrastructure components.

At GSI, we always listen carefully to all of our partners. The RapidReconciler team is no exception. As the product continues to grow, we have opportunities to have onsite visits with our end users. During one of the most recent sessions, 2 items were brought to our attention:
Lonnie Elwood, Client Success Manager
A firm’s move to a Cloud platform can be motivated by many different factors. There can be a desire to shift from a capital expenditure (CAPEX) model to more of an operating expenditure (OPEX) model for the IT costs of doing business. The availability of both compute and human resources can be more flexible when you engage Cloud and managed services offerings, but you need to make sure you are aware of what the true costs can be.
The inherent benefits of Cloud computing can pose challenges. In environments that are fast paced and very dynamic, IT support can pose challenges when the business user community quickly provisions and deploys systems without IT visibility.
David Telford, Vice President of Innovation
Let’s talk about blockchain. Wait, didn’t we do that back in June 2017? Yes, we did.
Back then, Bitcoin was the poster-child for blockchain technologies and was about to explode into a wild ride that made some crypto millionaires (on paper) and had the bankers and regulators all in a quandary about what this cryptocurrency thing really was all about. Well, a lot has happened to Bitcoin since then including people losing interest in hearing about it every day; me included. The interest in blockchain, however, has gained momentum even as interest in cryptocurrencies seem to be fading into the background. For a refresher on blockchain check out Blockchain explained: It builds trust when you need it most from C|NET.

If you have a lot of data to add to the Data Selection of any Batch Version in JD Edwards, check out this Chrome Extension.
I was working for a client that had 100’s of Branch/Plants that needed to be added to R3483. Before now, I would add them one at a time, lose my place then start over again.
I found this Extension for Chrome and love it. You may have already heard of it, but just in case you haven't, it can be found at http://www2.gsi-solutions.com/e/44342/ycjwadl4/c5jhsb/744954655
