If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
In terms of financial and distribution, this solution is one of the best. I would recommend this solution to others if they have the money. I rate JD Edwards EnterpriseOne an eight out of ten.
We used to use the Data Access Studio (DAS) to extract data from EnterpriseOne, although we now use Oracle OBIEE for that. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
Most of my experience is with on-premises deployments, although I have also worked in an environment where we hosted it on the cloud. If you have a cloud-based deployment then it's managed and maintained by the vendor, although you can still have your own customizations that are unique to the business. The vendor continuously improves this product, basing their changes according to the feedback provided by customers. At this point in time, it is difficult to asks for specific features because they're very compatible with any other system in the market. They are very strong in the manufacturing, construction, and engineering industries. My advice for anybody who is implementing JD Edwards is to make sure that all of your processes are stabilized and standardized. Follow the best practices. Make sure that the processes are not coming from somebody who had good ideas 60 years ago but in reality, are no longer effective. The best thing to do is make sure that the data is clean and you have the blueprints for the business processes according to best practices. I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.
In around 2007, JD Edwards went through a dip and most customers moved to other solutions. Here in South Arica, most government institutions and other clients actually started buying SAP. The company then started doing quite a bit of research and made drastic improvements. Today there are few ERP systems that can actually compete with JD Edwards EnterpriseOne. For a long time already, it's been possible to run the solution on any mobile app. I like the fact that there is competition because you need different ERP's that work in certain sectors or certain industries and don't always try to cover everything. For example, there are certain ERP's which are very strong in financial institutions. I would rate this solution a 10 out of 10.
When looking for a new product, definitely consider: * Stability * IT technology * Value
