PROJECT DELIVERED TO EXPECTATIONS WITH EARLY COMPLETION

Thanks to experience of working together previously, Berry Global trusted Redfaire International for their migration to the Cloud. This migration included multiple time-zone instances for five different geographic sites while also supporting multiple languages.

Through close collaboration, the decision was made to create a new JD Edwards platform in Cloud 9 whilst keeping all of Berry Global's local objects, data and customizations. Redfaire International successfully met this goal and delivered the project ahead of schedule.

Berry Global

Berry Global, Inc is a Fortune 500 global manufacturer and marketer of plastic packaging products with a history of rich in product innovation, customer focus, and strategic growth. 

With roots as a small, hometown company based in Evansville, Indiana, Berry has grown into a global, publicly traded, multi-billion dollar public corporation with over 290 facilities across the globe and more than 47,000 employees.

Customer Challenge

Berry Global wanted a strategic JDE hosting solution that would save money, minimize business impact, and allow for future divestments.

With a cumbersome infrastructure hosted by a legacy provider coming up for contract renewal, Berry Global needed to move from the datacentre as quickly and smoothly as possible for five sites running JD Edwards E1 in China, India, Belgium, and Mexico. 

Due to the multiple geographic locations, Berry also needed each local instance of JDE to be timezone sensitive to allow for traceability and shipping. This was a mandatory requirement.

 

Why Berry Global Chose Redfaire International

Berry and Redfaire International had been working together since 2017 and built a good relationship over time, collaborating on many specific challenges. 

Having previously utilized Redfaire International's Cloud 9 hosting solution, specifically engineered to run any JD Edwards system in the Cloud, the fixed price OPEX model appealed to Berry as it would take them out of the long-term multi-annual contract from their legacy infrastructure provider.

JD Edwards customers can innovate faster, improve customer engagement, drive business-process efficiency, and accelerate digital transformation with Oracle Cloud.

Outcomes

After some initial discussions, Redfaire International proposed building Berry Global a new JD Edwards platform in Cloud 9, while at the same time importing all local objects, data and customizations to the new system.

Berry Global’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne solution was used by sites in China, India, Belgium and Mexico. As well as architecting each local instance to be timezone sensitive to allow for traceability and shipping, we also provided multiple language support (e.g. Mandarin character sets and hardware) to ensure smooth user adoption.

Thanks to working together with Berry Global’s strong central team in Evansville, Indiana, we were able to ensure all assets were placed successfully in the Cloud.

Time for a JD Edwards Attic Conversion?

So, I have a theory, moving JD Edwards to the Cloud is a bit like converting your attic. No really, bear with me. In 2021, our houses are no longer just our homes; they are also our offices and often our kids’ schools. The world has changed, and we have had to adapt.

FROM FOCUS ON BUSINESS TO FOCUS ON THE EMPLOYEE

As described in “The necessity of choosing an open ERP”, being able to differentiate in the areas relevant to your business is becoming increasingly important.
