upgrade services

When support is withdrawn for older JD Edwards software versions or compatibility issues arise in respect of new hardware, databases, operating systems or networks, then upgrading to a more recent fully Oracle supported release is advisable.

EnterpriseOne, the latest version of Oracle JD Edwards software embraces evolving internet and enterprise security approaches to counter new cyber threats and takes advantage of industry enhancements.

The latest user interface increases user productivity with drop down menus and workflows to reduce training costs and promote positive user experiences. Users can leverage user-driven, graphical reporting across all available enterprise data using One View Reporting based on user roles and responsibilities.

New administration utilities reduce system administration costs, new user interface reduces training costs and added enhancements and modules reduce and often eliminate customizations which together drives down the total cost of ownership (TCO).

EnterpriseOne is also suitable for mobile platforms (tablets and smartphones) that support employees more effectively outside traditional office environments.

Neglecting any one of the these elements can compromise the success of your project. Millennium Consulting has a wide range of consultants with all the required skills and experience to ensure the success of your project. Specially selected partner organisation who have solutions that complement the services can also offer additional benefits. Whether it is a technical upgrade or full application upgrade, Millennium Consulting offers you the most complete, cost effective route to successfully upgrading your JD Edwards system.

E1 Upgrades

Technical Upgrade - Like-for-like upgrade

A technical upgrade for organisations seeking to remain on an Oracle supported version often in response to related operating system or database upgrades. No functional changes are introduced at this time.

Like-for-like plus upgrade

Organisations may upgrade to E1 9.1 or 9.2 to take advantage of new functionality and to implement more efficient working practices and achieve quick wins. As organisations evolve and grow since after implementing JD Edwards, the software configuration may remain unchanged. A like-for-like plus upgrade therefore reconfigures JD Edwards in line with the organisation’s new structure and business requirements.

Re-implementation

Organisations that have changed significantly since implementing JD Edwards with increased trading volumes, new corporate entities, new competitive pressures and the requirement for stricter controls may require a more radical software redesign.

Upgrading to a more recent Oracle supported software release can provide the opportunity to address changed circumstances by introducing fundamental changes whilst retaining JD Edwards as opposed to implementing from scratch an alternative software solution with all the cost and change management implications that would involve.
