Improves the quality of management information by using a new reporting tool.
Increases the functionality of operational systems.

Upgrading EnterpriseOne 9.0 to EnterpriseOne 9.2 Upgrading to the latest version of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne has delivered significant functional enhancements. Key outcomes include:
Greater process automation thanks to the native functionality in EnterpriseOne 9.2. The existing credit and claim process has been re-engineered and processes such as Procure to Pay, and Order-to-Cash have been streamlined.
Integration of modern AP Automation and Reporting tools has led to important productivity gains.
End-users at the company have been empowered thanks to embedded visualizations, notifications and personalized screens developed by citizen developers.
A significant reduction in the number of customizations.
Being on the latest version of JD Edwards also means that future ERP upgrades will be completed using a simplified upgrade approach.
Deploying JD Edwards on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure DX selected Redfaire’s Cloud 9 service, in preference to an on-premises deployment. Cloud 9 delivers a fully managed hosted solution on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. JD Edwards on OCI delivers:
Performance excellence with on-demand, elastic infrastructure.
Robust security with end-to-end data encryption and protection.
Reduced IT maintenance costs with a JD Edwards solution delivered to an agreed SLA.
As part of the migration, DX also moved from SQL to Oracle Databases, leading to substantial performance improvements.
Optimizing ERP Data Redfaire used their data optimization tool Datawaire to significantly reduce the quantity of data held in the production environment. Reducing the data load prior to the upgrade meant that the transition to the new system was completed in one weekend. End-users signed on to the new system on Monday morning having signed off the old system as usual on Friday evening.
The original schedule for this major project was calculated at six months. Redfaire International worked with Jumbo Group to create a project schedule with a two stage implementation, and dedicated teams for Finance, Purchasing and Sales modules.
Overview: JD Edwards continues to evolve and empower clients to not only, 'keep the lights on' but also to thrive as they take advantage of the latest investments from Oracle. Catch up on some of the latest announcements and the product vision from the JDE team.
