Companies typically implement sustainability programs because they want to improve company culture, encourage employees to contribute to positive change and increase profitability by reducing costs. Yet even when the commitment is there, implementation can be challenging, especially in small companies where resources are limited and time is at a premium.

Oracle_JDE_WorldUpgrading your JD Edwards World version will not only provide you with guaranteed Oracle support, but improved functionality as well.

Here’s a brief look at A9.3 and A9.3.1, and why upgrading will be critical not only to retain support, but for complete success with JDE.

During Oracle Open World 2012, Larry Ellison, CEO of Oracle Corporation, was quoted as saying, “JD Edwards…is something we’re going to [continue to] invest in…that’s a very strategic product line for us.”

Earth Day 2013: How and Why a Sustainability Program Works for Briteskies, Year-Round

Shortly after finishing Chris Laszlo and Nadya Zhexembayeva’s book, Embedded Sustainability, I proposed a sustainability program for Briteskies. The book made it clear that in order to be successful, a company should implement sustainability programs, but most importantly, such programs had to become an integral part of the company’s culture and operations. Simply bolting on a program could give the appearance of greenwashing: a practice of deceptively marketing green initiatives to sway public opinion when in fact the company is not committed to these values.

Options for A73 and A81 Users

If you’re running JD Edwards A73 orA81 and you’re considering an upgrade, you have two available options: E1 9.0 or World A9.2. While most of you might expect that E1 9.0 would be touted as the obvious choice, I would suggest that you consider World A9.2 as an alternative. You may find that if you remain on World and move forward with A9.2, it may be the best course to leveraging your current in-house expertise, while still providing you with the operational abilities you want and need. While E1 9.0 provides tremendous functionality and scalability, these amenities come with a cost. Most E1 implementations will succeed or fail contingent upon your configurable network computing process and support, which will map the paths to various databases and system objects. Because integrations and support requirements can be extremely complex, it’s more likely than not that upgrading to E1 9.0 will demand highly specialized technical skills and in-depth system knowledge. Considering our current economic climate, there are those who may not have the means to acquire these specialized skills, or the time to develop them in-house. In this regard, most World users will probably find that they’ll meet or exceed their upgrade objectives by upgrading to World A9.2. World A9.2 will provide you with an easier to use browser-based interface and highly desirable import and export capabilities when used in conjunction with Excel.
