Review of Oracle JD Edwards EnterpriseOne

April, 2013

Rating: 5/5

In a phrase, Oracle JD Edwards EnterpriseOne is a strong, well-established solution. I recommend putting it on your shortlist for medium-to-large ERP needs.

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne is a flexible ERP solution that covers most needs - manufacturing, distribution, services and more. It includes all of the functionality you’d expect to operate your core business - including Financial Management, Project Management, Asset Lifecycle Management, Order Management, Manufacturing Management, Mobile Solutions, and Reporting.

Before you choose Oracle JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, here are the key things you need to know.

First, JD Edwards is very flexible and broad, with a particular strength for manufacturing organisations. It is a strong, comprehensive ERP solution for medium to large businesses, and of a high-quality.

Second, an open platform. JD Edwards supports a variety of different technologies, giving you a choice of operating system, database and middleware. I recommend you also look at the option for Oracle to host the application for you, saving significant amount of internal IT effort.

Third, industry-specific functionality is available. Oracle offer “Oracle business accelerators”, which provide faster templated implementation based on your specific industry and business. There are well over 100 of these, which may help you implement faster. However, make sure you review customisations them for your specific needs, as optimizing the system after going live can be much more expensive than getting it right initially.

I recommend JD Edwards EnterpriseOne for medium and large manufacturing and distribution businesses.
