May 10, 2013

Authored by Sarah Mack, TeamCain

It’s hard to believe that a month ago we were all in Denver, bracing the snow and filling our heads with knowledge. Collaborate 13 had some great announcements and our friends over at the JD Edwards Blog, JD Edwards Attitude@Altitude, wrote a great blog post summarizing these JDE announcements. The announcements included new product news, a new tools release, new focus initiatives and a new website – all with the purpose of providing values to customers while increasing customer satisfaction.

EnterpriseOne Tools 9.1 Update 3 is Now Available (Generally)

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools 9.1 update 3 (Tools 9.1.3) is the next update release to the groundbreaking Tools 9.1 release which delivered a next generation user experience for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.0 and 9.1 Application releases. This update release includes enhancements to the end user experience and mobile solutions, reporting, and system administration and development tools.

Oracle VM V5 for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.1

Oracle announced at Collaborate the availability of Oracle VM templates for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Application release 9.1 and Tools release 9.1.3. These templates can be used with Oracle VM for x86 version 3.1 or later and on the Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud. The templates speed up the implementation process and reduce the number of disk and reference materials to successfully complete the task. The templates are a component of the “Innovating for Simplification” initiative that was also launched at Collaborate.

World A9.3 Update 1 is Now Available

Flexibility, strength, simplicity, and consistency continues to be key words for A9.3 Update 1. The first set of significant enhancements for JD Edwards World A9.3 includes enhancements to Financial, Distribution, Manufacturing, Human Capital Management, Reporting, and Technical Foundation applications. Some enhancements include:

  • One place to go to manage all warranties and their associated incidents for Fixed Assets
  • An additional document type is supported by Import/Export to support export of a formatted Excel spreadsheet
  • The Depreciation Expense Allocation application automatically books the depreciation expense from a single asset to multiple business units based on a specified formula
  • Purchase Card Management now integrates with Approvals Management

... and more!!

In Memory Applications for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne

Oracle pre-announced new In Memory applications that will be available in May 2013.  The pre-announcement included two new JD Edwards In Memory Applications; In Memory Sales Advisor and In Memory Project Portfolio Management. In Memory applications provide the ability to complete complex logic/calculations on large data sets in real time that previously has been unavailable.

Extended Support Uplift Fees Waived for the 9s Releases

Oracle announced that they are waving the extended support fee uplifts on JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Releases 9.0 and 9.1 and JD Edwards World Releases A9.1, A9.2 and A9.3. These fee waivers cover the entire three years of remaining Extended Support. By upgrading to the “9’s” JD Edwards customers receive the extended support commitment at a predictable cost.

Sister Page to Launched

In response to customer feedback, JD Edwards is launching an initiative focused on simplifying not only how the software functions (User Experience for example), but will address complexities that may exist in any part of the ERP lifecycle, including how we deliver training, information, news, documentation, how utilities work, the install and upgrade processes, etc. The new web page is aimed at all users/customers and provides new Resource Kits that are comprehensive guides to the vast body of resources and tools available to the JD Edwards community.
