JD Edwards

The acquisition of JD Edwards by Oracle marks a major turning point in the evolution of the software industry. Oracle's JDE is set to deliver a highly competitive offering in the Enterprise Applications market. Aligning with the vision of Oracle, HCL has integrated JDE within its Oracle Universe practice. The JD Edwards practice has expertise in delivering end-to-end services - from blue printing to global rollouts and maintenance across verticals. [AMR has quoted HCL as one of the largest providers for JD Edwards's skills among offshore IT vendors].

With Oracle's acquisition of JD Edwards' products and its subsequent announcement of the Fusion applications road map, there has been urgent need for Upgrade services within the large JD Edwards customer base. At HCL we have seen that JD Edwards will become Oracle's standard ERP package for the SMB sector (Enterprises from $500 Million to $ 4Billion in revenues) and as SMB companies move on to become large enterprises, the JD Edwards package can be upgraded into an Oracle Fusion Suite. The need for a complex upgrade methodology and service is accentuated by the fact that JD Edwards's WorldSoft Version is on the IBM i (AS400) platform and is not enabled to support Client Server architecture, while latter versions of OneWorld and EnterpriseOne are based on a Unix Client Server platform. Hence, this makes the upgrade approach a critical one.
