Why JD Edwards Wins the Battle for ERP Leadership
It’s no secret that here at Briteskies, we love JD Edwards. Our team has been working with the ERP programs for years, and we have implemented or upgraded more JDE instances than we can count. This article from Alexander Wolfe at Forbes, “Why JD Edwards Wins the Battle for ERP Leadership,” does a great job of highlighting all that there is to love about JD Edwards EnterpriseOne.
As Wolfe states in the article, no matter the functions performed by an ERP system, if it is too difficult to use then it won’t be successful. But the usability of the platform is just one of the many reasons that we love JDE.
JDE recognizes that mobile devices are playing an increasingly larger role in businesses these days. As such, they have made JDE E1 accessible from tablets and smartphones through their collection of over 80 mobile apps. Additionally, the Mobile Application Framework was released to encourage more app development.
Supports the Business Lifecycle
Senior Vice President of Product Development for Oracle JD Edwards Lyle Ekdahl describes JDE as representing “the life cycle of a business,” and it’s true. From reporting and reconciliations to cloud hosting, JDE can support your business every step of the way.
Much like they realized the growing importance of mobile, JDE stays on top of the modernizing tech world and applies those findings to EnterpriseOne. Recent tools like Cafe One have upped the experience with JDE, making it both an easy to use and increasingly powerful platform.
