A Look Ahead: JD Edwards in 2019

With the end of the year quickly approaching, it’s time to take a look ahead at where JD Edwards is headed in 2019 and outline how your organization can proactively prepare for success.

Upgrades

Oracle previously announced the Continuous Innovation delivery model for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne. With this model, new functionality to JD Edwards products are delivered as updates to the existing release. So, if you’re running JD E1 9.2, you can rest assured, as your Premier Support date has been extended until December 2030. All fixes and updates are cumulative and available to all customers in the most current release.

If your organization is running JD E1 9.0 Update 2, then your Extended Support ended in November 2018. This means Oracle will not develop any changes or fixes for your 9.0 release, so any newly discovered bugs or enhancements that do not already have an ESU available would not be addressed in 9.0, which greatly increases your risk of downtime or need for customizations.

64-bit Processing

One of the key technology updates released in Tools Release 9.2.3 is JD Edwards enabling 64-bit processing for the Enterprise Server and development clients. This empowers you to move completely from 32-bit to 64-bit processing. The minimum Applications Release required for this upgrade is 9.2. Moving to 64-bit enables you to adopt future technology and future-proof your environments. It also enable JD Edwards to deliver future product innovation and support newer versions of the required technology stack. Learn More in our JDE 64-bit Enablement Document.

Orchestrations

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Orchestrator is a framework that enables Digital Transformation. There has been an added focus on Orchestrator and the released orchestrations out of the box to help customers adopt them. JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Orchestrator continues to provide significant functionality for automating EnterpriseOne transactions and interfacing with external systems. Check out our tutorial video, “Calling an Orchestration from an Orchestration”.

Cloud Migrations

Moving to a JD Edwards Managed Cloud solution takes you out of the JDE hosting and maintenance business, freeing your resources for high-impact initiatives. Your organization will no longer need to worry about hardware upgrades and you’ll have the ability to scale up or down quickly and efficiently. EmeraldCloud, the secure JDE-on-AWS solution that pairs the deep JDE expertise of EmeraldCube with the power of Amazon Web Services, leverages the scale and flexibility of AWS while equipping your business with military-grade data encryption and unmatched monitoring and alerting capabilities.

Team Member Spotlight: Karen Brigiotta

This quarter, our team member spotlight focuses on Karen Brigiotta, Senior Application Consultant at EmeraldCube Solutions. Karen brings to EmeraldCube over 15 years of JD Edwards experience, both as a customer and as a consultant. She began her career as a functional user of JDE version 8.10 in 2003, and quickly moved into a CNC Administrator role while continuing to work with functional users on standard JDE functionality. From there, here experience with JDE flourished!

During her time at EmeraldCube, Karen has been working with customers to help resolve issues during day to day processing with JDE. She advises on best practices and helps the customer understand and implement standard and sometimes custom functionality. She assists with finding faster and more efficient ways to meet business needs. Karen plays an integral part in creating content for EmeraldCube’s Cubeology program and is an active leader in a number of Technology Special Interest Groups.

Karen loves being part of the EmeraldCube team, as each day brings a new challenge and learning experience. She enjoys working with people who strive to continually make things better within EmeraldCube and for each and every customer that they serve. Due to the rapid pace of the environment and business requirements which are constantly changing, there are always opportunities to find better ways to accomplish tasks and improve business processes.

Outside of the office, Karen enjoys spending time with her family and reading. A fun fact… she has already read 121 books this year. Wow, we are proud to have you as a Cuber!

 

#EmeraldCube Cares: Beyond “The Cube”

With the holidays around the corner and the office filled with hustle and bustle, many Cubers set aside time to give back to their local communities. Jeremy Harms, our Director of Business Intelligence, and Jared Harms, ETL Consultant, have been dedicated for many years volunteering for various charities in Atlanta. Together, Jeremy and Jared make it a family affair during the holidays volunteering side by side at the annual Lazarus Project Christmas Dinner.

Since 2001, this dinner has been a celebration of the Advent season and the culmination of another year spent sharing life together with the homeless men and women of Atlanta. Jeremy and his family celebrate Christmas with those friends living on the street and staying in nearby shelters, by serving a feast in the Urban Garden at Atlanta Mission. All are welcomed at a candlelit feast complete with real plates, tablecloths, caroling, and loads of Christmas cheer. To find out more and to get involved, visit http://www.wearelazarus.org

Thank you Jeremy and Jared for all you do beyond The Cube!
