Customer Challenge

Denkavit had used JD Edwards for back office administration since 2005 with business intelligence at the center of their operations.

Denkavit needed a strategic partner to help them future proof their systems and implement a customized solution to monitor the animals at their research farms.

The customized solution had been in use since 2012, and combined the back-office system with the Veal Farmer Portal (VFM) accessible on iPad. The iPad allows the calf specialist to request and capture data while in the barn. The dashboard information is also available in PDF format so that it can be presented off line to the veal farmer. The system allows Denkavit to monitor the health of individual calves in real-time, and to monitor feed stocks and administration.

One important success factor was the clear definition of measurements so that all data was entered consistently, for unambiguous reporting. The Calf Value Rating was a good example. This figure is measured by calf based on average daily growth, and compared with calves in other herds.

WHY DENKAVIT CHOSE REDFAIRE INTERNATIONAL

Denkavit chose Redfaire International to deploy a custom solution for farm administration. As part of the implementation, Redfaire International carried out tests on the design of the data model with regard to the business process, the existing administration and the information requirements of the business.

Partner requirements.

  • Deep technical skills required for JD Edwards Enterprise One and Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition.
  • Requirement to monitor data in real time.
  • Support required for data model testing.

In the future, Denkavit is interested in using sensors in barns and the Internet of Things (IoT) to further develop the role of business intelligence in farming. With this project successfully completed, these types of future innovations are easily achievable.

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.
