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?
So now that my system is up and running I realize that I need to leverage some additional software solutions with my ERP system in order to truly get the biggest bang for my buck. Luckily for me, I know that I have a set of application programming interfaces, or API's, that allow me to connect everything seamlessly. API's are sets of routines, protocols, and/or tools that allow for building software applications. An API allows users to express a software component in terms of their operations, inputs, outputs, and underlying types.
Should I upgrade or should I consider EnterpriseOne? This is the proverbial million dollar question that only you can answer. As I pointed out last month, many organizations ponder this question. Assuming either you have made your decision or are still looking for the right answer, this month's column focuses, as promised, on the process of upgrading World to World. Here are some key questions to ask yourself prior to starting.
Did you know that Oracle is hard at work bringing a whole new set of bells and whistles to JD Edwards World. The release of IBM OS V7R1 has allowed for more "openness" to the software.

It is allowing Oracle to work on bringing some advanced functionality to the World product family.

Organizations that use JD Edwards software have invested heavily in their applications to provide efficient and comprehensive support for their business processes. However, access to JDE is often restricted to a limited number of users within the organization. Often the JDE applications are completely unavailable to customers, suppliers and others outside the organization. Barriers of cost, licensing, connectivity, usability and availability often prohibited the wide spread access to JDE. Today JDE World customers can give secure, easy-to-use access to anyone within the organization as well as people outside the organization such as customers, suppliers and agents.
