Top 5 Reasons to Upgrade Now to JDE E1

Support for JD Edward (JDE) World A9.4 is coming to an end. Discover the top 5 reasons you should act now and upgrade to EnterpriseOne 9.2.

1. Enhanced user experience features and mobile capabilities

Oracle made several strategic system improvements aimed at enhancing the user experience when they introduced EnterpriseOne 9.2 (E1 9.2):

  • The user experience (UX) has expanded personalization, form extensions, enhanced media objects and other UDO additions.
  • EnterpriseOne Tools release, 9.2.5.4 includes improved Personal Forms features and simplified EnterpriseOne Search.
  • Introduction of features available on mobile devices
  • A selection of new features for these process modules:
    • Financials
    • Manufacturing
    • Order Management
    • Procurement
    • Inventory Management
    • Warehouse Management

The updates enable users to extend business processes, adapt enhancements and increase productivity.

2. Regular updates that address usability and security

As a best practice, Oracle recommends that customers maintain their environment and stay current on E1 9.2 by implementing regular enhancement releases. Using this methodology makes software updates routine and predictable if new enhancements or technology updates are needed. It also puts the control for when to implement releases and how frequently with the customer to make changes based on business needs and cycles.

Network and application security is a priority for all organizations. Security measures and strategies need to be built into systems to protect the application, users, network and infrastructure from outsiders.

3. Premier support from Oracle through 2032

Your enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution is an important investment. You want to be confident that the solution continues to produce value for your organization. Migrating to E1 9.2 enables you to take advantage of the many new features and functions. Plus, Oracle expanded the timeline for Premier Support timeframe through 2032.

4. Continuous delivery model means you decide when to add new features and functionality

Oracle supports a continuous delivery methodology for the application and supporting tools. That means you can update your JDE system without the added potential cost of another upgrade in the future.  

Oracle’s Continuous Delivery program enables the addition of periodic enhancements when you’re ready to add new updates, features and functionality. Based on the release information, E1 9.2 updates are delivered two to three times a year to keep the environment code current instead of through major releases.

5. JDE’s digital transformation strategy addresses market changes without added costs or customization

Oracle has a JD Edwards Digital Transformation Strategy that enables a rapid response to changing market forces without additional costs or complicated customizations. In Tools Release 9.2.5.4, Oracle JD Edwards continues their investment in digital transformation by focusing on improvements directed at user experience, system automation, security and open platforms. Previous releases also addressed features to simplify and automate the ongoing maintenance of JD Edwards, along with updated platform certifications.
