JD Edwards EnterpriseOne has been enhanced to provide barrel import functionality in the Blend Management product for release 9.2.
During the time of year when winemakers transfer wine from tanks to barrels, there is a large quantity of data to manage. A tank of wine could be broken down into thousands of barrels, for which the records are commonly stored in a spreadsheet or csv file. With the Barrel Import enhancement, users can now take the thousands of barrels stored in a file, and import or copy and paste them into a Blend Management operation. This saves users valuable time and improves the accuracy of the data imported. Doc ID 2356414.1. http://ora.cl/PI6FX
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne release 9.2 has been enhanced to provide inventory commitment functionality in the Grower and Blend Management product.
Grower and Blend operations that use additives, sprays, or consumables now validate the availability of that inventory. Because an inventory commitment is created at the time the operation is created, buyers now have visibility into inventory that is running low and users are assured that the inventory and lot is available at the time they are executing the operation. When the operation is closed, inventory is relieved ensuring that on-hand inventory remains accurate. If the items used are non-stocked items or for Grower Spray operations that are not internally supplied, availability checking, updating commitments, and updating on-hand inventory will be disabled.

As we approach the end of FY 2017 (for those of you who are following a non-calendar date pattern), it’s a great time to start thinking about year-end close issues. Rather than wait until the end of closing month, getting a head start can improve your chances of closing smoothly without any issues by the closing month.
There are several tasks that need to be completed as part of the closing process; including closing the accounting period, changing the financial reporting date and closing the fiscal year. Before closing the year, there are several other tasks that need to be performed before the annual close can take place:
Verify General Ledger Automatic Accounting Instructions (AAIs)
Set up Leger Type points to close to retained earnings
Enter period-end accruals
Review and post all batches
Verify data integrity
Reconcile General Ledger to bank accounts
Run monetary account valuation and financial reports
In addition to these tasks, organization should develop their own detailed closing tasks and include them in their internal documentation.

The Inbound Condition-Based Alerts Inquiry (P1310Z1) is accessed from EnterpriseOne menu G13CBM311. This application can be used update and review information that was added to the F1310Z1 table from the Inbound Flat File Conversion batch program (R47002C), or to simply add a new inbound record manually. The Inbound Condition-Based Alerts Processing (R1310Z1I) batch application copies transactions from the Unedited Condition-Based Alerts table (F1310Z1) and populates the Condition Based Alerts table (F1310). Depending on the settings in the batch application’s Version tab, the system can initiate other downstream Condition-Based processing. This new KM document explains how to add an install base record using the Inbound Condition-Based Alerts Inquiry (P1310Z1) and the minimum fields necessary. Document ID 2346377.1. http://ora.cl/0S2Go
Are you using the customer credit limits and credit hold codes to effectively manage accounts receivable?
Credits granted to your customers are similar to financial loans. Effective use of the credit limit ensures that the amount of credit granted a customer aligns with the financial abilities of each customer.
Setting up a credit limit on a customer account does not mean that new sales orders cannot be created for the customer. In EnterpriseOne, credit holds can be setup based on the customer's credit limit or based on the age of open accounts receivable. A credit hold on a customer's sales order(s) will prevent further processing of the order, to reduce your risk. You don't always want to ship items to customers who are poor payers, customers with a history of late payments or missed payments.
Did you know that you can record information for credit insurance policies (insured credit limit) in EnterpriseOne?
Don't get caught with large noncollectable accounts receivable balances. Review the functionality available in EnterpriseOne in Credit Checking (Doc ID 2319760.2).
Failure Analysis is tool that can help the end user identify failures, analyze their symptoms and arrive at a resolution in an effective manner. Data recorded in the Failure Analysis system can be used to track failure trends related to equipment records. Once set up, the Failure Analysis can be used from Cases, Capital Asset Management Work Orders or Service Warranty Management Work Orders. When an organization requires data related to equipment failures as reported in cases and work orders, Failure Analysis can be useful for end users as a guide to product analyses and resolutions. Over time, as users input more failure analysis information, an enhanced Pareto Analysis can be helpful for faster resolutions. This new document provides an overview, setup and execution.

Is your organization hampered by not being able to use Basket level price adjustments in Procurement? We heard you, and we’ve changed that in the 9.2 release. Now, all the features you know and love from Sales Order Basket Pricing are available for Purchase orders including interactive/batch/automatic repricing, Enhanced Baskets, and complex customer (supplier) groups, to name a few. Plus, you have the option to apply the adjustment during order entry or at receipt.
There is an ESU to install, but once that’s done, the functionality has the same look and feel as the Sales Order Basket processes, so you can hit the ground running. We even added a new UBE to tie it all together: Basket Level Pricing for Procurement program (R45750).
For full details see Basket Pricing for Procurement Enhancement Available (Doc ID 2290155.1). We’d love to show you how it all works in our Advisor Webcast, too. Mark your calendar for March 27th 2018 and register at Document ID 2357496.1.

Trial Edition on Oracle Cloud
The JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Release 9.2 Trial Edition provides a fully functional suite of interconnected virtual machines.
These virtual machines are deployed on a single Oracle Cloud instance.
The virtual machines contain a snapshot of an EnterpriseOne server at a certain point in time and cannot be updated.
The Trial Edition is for demonstration purposes only and can be used it to verify functionality and investigate proof of concepts.
The Trial Edition only contains the Pristine environment, which is one of the four standard JD Edwards EnterpriseOne environments. It does not contain a Deployment Server or allow for the creation or use of a Development Client.
JD Edwards continues to invest in automating the deployment of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne in Oracle Cloud. JD Edwards One-Click provisioning provides an easy-to-use, automated framework for deploying JD Edwards EnterpriseOne environments to Oracle Cloud.
One-Click Provisioning introduces a console that provides an automated process for deploying and scaling out a JD Edwards EnterpriseOne environment with a single click.

This version of AMS4JDE plug-in allows you to automatically deploy the Enterprise Manager Hybrid Cloud Agent onto your Oracle Cloud environment and manage JD Edwards EnterpriseOne deployments to Oracle Cloud and on-premise from a single console.
Detailed Instructions for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Classic:
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure combines the elasticity and utility of public cloud with the granular control, security, and predictability of on-premises infrastructure to deliver high-performance, high availability and cost-effective infrastructure services.
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure redefines how you modernize, innovate, and compete in a digital world with industry-leading compute, high-performance storage, enhanced networking and DNS, and a stack of complete and seamlessly integrated Cloud Platform services such as database and load balancing services.
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne deployed on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure enables you to take advantage of these benefits and accelerate your path to digital transformation.
Detailed Instructions for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure:
The term “hybrid cloud” means that making smart use of cloud technologies is not a “yes-or-no” or “all-or-nothing” decision. As customers and partners evaluate their choice of platform and deployment options against their business requirements, most configurations will result in a hybrid deployment ,model in which some of the functionality and computing resources remain on-premise and some are more optimally provisioned via cloud services. Depending on your business needs, here are some potential scenarios:
Development and test environments can be deployed on the cloud platform while the production instance can continue running on-premise.
EnterpriseOne test/development and production instances can be deployed on the cloud platform while some of the integrations can run on-premise or vice versa.
EnterpriseOne test/development and production instances run on-premise or on the cloud platform while you extend and complement EnterpriseOne functionality by selectively adopting cloud-based services,such as Oracle Mobile Cloud =Service, Internet of Things Cloud Service, Business Intelligence Cloud Service, or many others.
JD Edwards supports these scenarios and hybrid deployment models, thus empowering customers and partners with choice and control. In general Oracle does not recommend splitting the tiers of a single JD Edwards EnterpriseOne environment between on-premise and cloud, for example, running the web tier on-premise and the database in the cloud.
Does Oracle provide managed services for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne on Oracle Cloud?
Oracle’s Managed Cloud Services (OMCS) team provides managed services for customers running Oracle JD Edwards EnterpriseOne instances on Oracle Cloud or on-premises. Oracle partners can also provide managed services with JD Edwards on Oracle Public Cloud.
