PURGE AND ARCHIVE JDE DATA IN ONE DAY AS PART OF A JDE UPGRADE

How Pladis successfully upgraded by using Datawaire data archiving to purge and archive data.

IT always had a strategic role at Pladis as the company continually invests in deploying the most efficient tools to maintain its competitive advantage. Having 450+ JD Edwards users, the ERP solution is at the heart of Pladis’ IT strategy in Northern Europe where they use JDE to manage finance, manufacturing and distribution.

Due to considerable business growth, Pladis required experts in JD Edwards to help them with an E1 9.0 upgrade project and and a technical solution for handling a huge amount of business data.

Pladis manufactures and distributes biscuits, wafer, cakes, chocolate, gum and candy categories.

Customer Challenge

In preparation for the E1 9.0 upgrade project, the technical team assessed the quantity of JDE application data. Since the previous upgrade, the business had grown substantially.

The team estimated that converting the 650GB of data could take up to three days, and this was seen as risky, inefficient and costly.

DATAWAIRE DATA ARCHIVING: A PROVEN SOLUTION FOR PURGING AND ARCHIVING

Pladis selected Datawaire Data Archiving from Redfaire International after a thorough selection procedure. It was chosen as a proven solution that is already in use at over 500 JD Edwards customers worldwide. Redfaire International also demonstrated their expertise and experience in ERP for the food industry.

The Pladis team considered it easier to use and less complex than other solutions evaluated.

When implementing the solution, specific attention was paid to achieving business buy-in. By communicating business benefits and reassuring users they would not lose any important data, project delay due to end-user resistance was avoided.

A quick and easy project.

The project was executed in stages:

  • Planning and analysis - to determine the requirements.
  • Design phase - decide on the order of purging.
  • Technical Phase - including the installation of the product.
  • Testing phase - testing and training the product and users.
