Have you asked yourself, “What is Oracle doing to enhance customers’ investment in the JD Edwards World product?” If asked, my response would be ‘A LOT’! JD Edwards just announced General Availability of our latest Group Software Update for A9.3 update 1: A126.96.36.199 (GSU 3). Oracle’s release naming convention wasn’t designed to confuse you, but to demonstrate the commitment to a continuous improvement of our products. Oracle is now delivering Group Software updates to help you stay code current on our latest releases. Go have a look at Software Updates Available for JD Edwards World A9.3 for details.
JD Edwards World continues to build upon earlier releases making customer enhancement requests a reality with significant enhancements to Financial, Distribution, Manufacturing, Human Capital Management, Reporting and Technical Foundation applications. JD Edwards World A9.3 delivers robust and actionable information through application and reporting enhancements, reduced costs through stream lined processes, improved control through flexible security, and a continued commitment to globalization through localization updates. Let’s look at the numbers:
198 - Enhanced product Features added in A9.1
290 - Enhanced product Features added in A9.2
46 - Enhanced product Features added in A9.2 Update 1
255 - Enhanced product Features added in A9.3
24 - Enhanced product Features added in A9.3 Update 1
If my elementary school math serves me correctly, that equals 813 unique product enhancements implemented in JD Edwards World, since the release of A9.1 in March of 2007. So your question should be (if you aren’t running your business on release A9.3), “Why are we throwing money away by not taking advantage of our ERP investment?” To see a full list of enhanced product features, check out www.UpgradeJDE.com – Upgrade Resources/Oracle Product Features.
When someone asks – can JD Edwards do that? We graciously reply, “Yep! We do that!”
