It’s always good to know when your JD Edwards Premier and Extended Support ends. Below are tables from Oracle’s Lifetime Support Policy, Coverage for Oracle Applications - August 2016 for your reference.
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne
JD Edwards World
If you haven’t explored EnterpriseOne 9.2, you might want to consider an upgrade or migration as it builds on some great extensions that were in the 9.1.x update. Café One, new in 9.1.3, now permits the inclusion of EnterpriseOne apps within EnterpriseOne screens. Watchlists were new in 9.1.3 and now can be included on pages. One View Reports are now accessible from the carousel and EnterpriseOne pages. Application sensitive help is now available and EnterpriseOne for iPad is much enriched. There is so much more to discover.
The JD Edwards World A9.4 release also features additional enhancements, namely the Expense Management application. It enables companies to manage all employee expenses including expense entry, approval, and reporting and is fulling integrated with Financials, Project Management, and Procurement. To simplify the data entry process, new expense categories for purchase card management automatically update employees’ transactions with the correct accounting information based on the expense category entered. Expense management approvals are supported by approval rules for your organization.
Further enhancements to A9.4 include Cost and Variance Capture by Work Center, Forecast Consumption by Customer, Encumbrance and Commitment Accounting, new tax fields, and user-defined data may now be added to the General Ledger Detail file (F0911).
Upgrading your JD Edwards World or EnterpriseOne system is something that more and more customers are doing, and doing more frequently. There are three types: Like for Like (LFL), Like for Like + Low Hanging Fruit (LFL+LHF), and Business Process Re-engineering (BPR). But how do you know which upgrade is right for you? If you’d like to discuss the approach and intent of each of the upgrade types as well as the impact for your business, budget, resources and potential benefits, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
