These components enable functionality such as user interface, security, reporting, and so on, across all JD Edwards Enterprise One application modules. Although depicted and often named as servers, these are actually logical components, which often can be collocated on the same physical hardware or installed into virtual machines.jd

Upgrading JD Edwards Products

How Persistent can assist your JD Edwards upgrade

Persistent has a long-standing history and proven track record of working with both World and Enterprise One software. As a result, we know better than anyone in the India and USA how to carry out upgrades. We can assist you in the following activities:

  • Assessing the new functionality. The Persistent Discovery Questionnaire is one way of speeding up the process. Review the list of business issues and areas of interest and we will help assess the enhancements and the possible courses of action open to you.
  • Documenting business processes. This is a time-consuming task that needs a good understanding of the processes involved. Many customers don’t have the time and resources to do this.
  • Building the business case. These days most IT projects have to be justified through a benefits-driven business case.
  • Upgrade tools. Persistent can help you obtain, set up and run the new tools, and assess the results.
  • Purging & archiving. We can supply tools to purge, archive and reorganise files before the upgrade is undertaken.
  • Application assessment. Assess the effectiveness of the JD Edwards solution in place today and the potential for improving the solution’s efficiencies across the organisation.
  • Software system technical review. Identify areas that need attention and help put a ‘house-keeping’ procedure in place, to potentially achieve savings in disk space.
  • Upgrade planning workshop. Designed to give you an opportunity to look at all the factors involved, both technical and applications, and to identify and resolve any issues. As a result, you will have a clear upgrade strategy, an outline plan and a resources plan.
  • Upgrade project. One way of approaching an upgrade is to do it in two stages; carry out the technical upgrade so that your users are moved to the new release, then introduce the new functionality you have decided to use. Our experienced technical and applications consultants can help you plan and manage both aspects.

JD Edwards Implementation Services

The implementation of an ERP system will have a major impact on your business.  When properly executed the solution can have a substantial positive impact on your business. Of course a poorly implemented solution can result in a disaster for your business.

One of the keys to a successful implementation is having a clear vision of the business objectives that you are trying to achieve as part of this project.

At Persistent Our implementation approach includes the process of identifying these objectives and ensuring the team is focused on achieving these objectives throughout the project.

We have been implementing JD Edwards solutions for customers for the past 10 years.  Our team has extensive experience in all aspects which are required to achieve a successful project.

Whether this is your first JD Edwards implementation, a reimplementation of JD Edwards or an expansion of your current JD Edwards solution we are confident that we can help you achieve your business objectives.

    • Technology

One of the biggest issues during a project is data conversion moving data from the old system and mapping it into the new ERP. Get ahead by reviewing your data now.
Set clear standards for data entry going forward in the new system.

    • People

Thirty years ago, ERP systems had to be custom developed, requiring extensive IT involvement and resources.

Today, selecting and implementing a new ERP system is much more than an IT initiative. It is a business initiative and something that can shape a company’s future.
Top executives need to be involved and fully visible in ERP system implementations, taking ownership and giving guidance throughout the process.

    • Processes

Successful implementations happen when ERP experts work with businesses to guide the process. Clear and frequent communication is paramount, as is extensive training.
