JD Edwards World Review

Convenient and flexible for users

What is our primary use case?

With the World version, we use the finance module, distribution module, and the manufacturing module.

What is most valuable?

I think JDE ERP is very flexible and very convenient for the users. I think EnterpriseOne is more convenient for users to do the inquiry and do the data entry. The UI is better than JDE World. JDE products, including the World version, is very flexible. It's a good product for clients.

What needs improvement?

I have more than 18 years of JDE experience in JDE EnterpriseOne and World versions. I think JDE is good but compared to SAP and Oracle EPS, we can see which area needs to have some improvement for JDE. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using JD Edwards Worlds for three to four years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

JDE World is more stable than JDE EnterpriseOne. For JDE EnterpriseOne, the Integrity part will generate some errors. Since they have low Integrity, we get some duplicate records in the accumulator table. This is an issue.

For this type of issue, that will cause maybe the losses, it is about a single step or a single web program. 

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

A main difference between EnterpriseOne and World is the user interface, they are different. JDE is totally web-based system already. But for the JDE World, I think they need to use a CS program to access the server and then do the operations.

There is some type of difference between JDE EnterpriseOne and JDE World version. The table is not the same. Most of them are the same, but some tables are different.

The server is also a difference. For the JDE World version, they normally use the IBM X400 servers. But for JDE EnterpriseOne, they can build on the Intel servers. 

What other advice do I have?

I would rate JDE World and eight out of ten. 

I would like to see performance monitoring improve. Since I have experience with SAP, I know they have some program to monitor the performance, they can know what the current CPU is and what the program status is. But in JDE, I don't know whether they have enough programs to do the monitoring for the performance.

I would recommend EnterpriseOne over World. I have done a comparison between JDE, SAP, and EPS, I think JDE is the best amongst these three ERPs. I'm in China and JDE has very few customers here. I think the root cause is the cost strategy. Their sales strategy is wrong.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
