- Because I work on the finance side I can tell you that the general ledger functions are a benefit. It is easy to add new accounts or access balance and the details of these accounts.
- It is very to export things to excel from JDE. This is a function we use a lot and is much easier than other systems I've worked with in the past.
- Access to certain info can be easily given or taken away from people/departments which is a plus for our public company.
- One thing that could be improved is how fast it is for accessing data. When trying to pull data it had to be watched closely or your session will time out which can mean some waiting around.
- Also, even though layouts are customizable it's very difficult and not always user-friendly to do.
- I don't know if its the way the company had it set up but there is no set time on when you are logged off from being idle. It varies day to day and person to person for security measures there should be a set time.
- JD Edwards is very configurable in handling different sales order entry scenarios.
- JD Edwards can be customized to present focused information on the login screen of a user so a user can better focus on the applications or reports that are relevant to their job.
- JD Edwards is also very effective in creating relationships between various customer accounts and the relationships between them.
- The Configurable Network Language (CNC) is a proprietary protocol, and it can be difficult to source resources that understand this language well.
- It has some inherent limitations with generating PDF or printable files. Most organizations use a third party platform like Creat!form or Bottomline to solve this.
- No built in credit card processing solution, and no plug-and-play eCommerce or webstore capabilities available.
- Customizability. As an I.T. person, I appreciate the ability to modify the application in ways that will suit our specific needs.
- Stability. Our JDE application is extremely stable. We don't seem to have the ups and downs that some of our other applications have.
- Oracle Support. The support site is fantastic. Between the Knowledge Base and the Customer Forums I can usually find an answer and when I can't, Oracle is quick to help.
- It is very configurable
- It is very stable
- It is cheap to operate
- Due to the complexity of the system technical issues can be difficult to trace
- Although it has improved a lot over the years, installation and upgrade procedures are rather complex
- Oracle continues to get behind JD Edwards product applications and the latest release of 9.2 has lots more functionality.
- The licensing can be expensive depending on the number of concurrent users.
Oracle JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Review: "To go for JD Edwards Enterprise One or not....that is the question !!"
- Project Management application from what I have heard from my colleagues and peers is top notch to say the least.
- From my friends at other companies who use JD Edwards I am told that it has helped them tremendously in terms supporting them towards better quarterly forecasts.
- Price and/or Cost of Ownership is quite high compared to competition for e.g. MS Dynamics, etc
- It is a highly complex application compared to other options in the market like MS Dynamics, etc
- The new versions (9.2) of JDE has so much open functionality and really gives the user control over the screens and what they want to see. Love that the layout of the screen is really up to the user and what they want to see it along with freezing columns and creating favorites for way access.
- It is so flexible with the system platforms that it can run on and so easy to customize since it supports so many databases.
- It is intuitive and does not need to have a lot of training on how to use the software.
- It's just a great ERP software and one of the better ones I've seen.
- Oracle is FINALLY starting to listen to the users and SIGs and putting enhancements into the system which makes life easier for us business users.
- Upgrade time and costs involved with doing them. They mention staying code current but don't have any good solutions on how we sell this to our business since user testing and involvement must happen.
- Very costly to purchase and the maintenance cost is pretty extreme. They come out with this new functionality but then want to charge us, even more, to get it (which is wrong). Since we pay maintenance, we should get this new stuff for free or a heavily discounted price.
- The job scheduler is in need or a serious re-vamp as it can barely even run jobs without crashing. If you need complex scheduling, forget using this tool, you have to go and purchase a 3rd party software.
- Transaction processing and traceability - able to trace user transactions all the way to the financial ledgers
- Support documentation - documentation is vague in a number of areas in Oracle support
- Integrity issues - unexplained and unable to ferret out a root cause
- Requiring a COA that is a unique combination as opposed to being able to use any business unit with any object account, without having to create the combination first in the COA
- Manufacturing Systems and Support - The core functionalities for managing manufacturing are all there and easy to use.
- Financials - The financial systems have stood the test of time and are very stable and reliable.
- Cutting Edge - JD Edwards continues to be enhanced and developed with new tools and technologies.
- Quality/Test Results Management system is lightweight and somewhat clunky.
- My Oracle Support Tool for getting help from Oracle is clunky.
- Upgrade process is not always smooth.
- JDE E1 is very flexible and allows us to configure the system to provide us maximum benefit
- JDE E1 user interface and technical foundation is leading edge, including Mobile Applications, which provides end users ease of use.
- JDE E1 is easily integrated with other systems
- Oracle product licensing is a nightmare and cost containment is difficult if not impossible when using various Oracle products to support JDE E1 such as Oracle Database and Oracle Fusion Middleware (WebLogic Server).
- The Flexibility benefit can also be a problem when a small change ripples through the system causing issues.
- The JDE E1 application web client should identify necessary setting for the browsers: Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox
Are your business processes well defined to be able to map to JDE E1 ERP system?
What is the expected time and resources needed to implement?
What are product support and training options?
What are update and upgrade options for keeping the system current?
What are the resources needed by the Information Technology department to support the technical platform such as Oracle or SQL Server DBAs or AS/400 or Unix/Windows system administrators, etc.?
