Overall Satisfaction with Oracle JD Edwards EnterpriseOne

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne is used as the accounting GL, AP, AR master for the company consolidating financials across six other ERP systems (obtained through acquisition) and business units. It is used for purchasing of all raw materials for manufacturing as well as corporate expenses and vendor management. It is also used for manufacturing management for two business units. It solves the problem of traditional accounting/ERP management of the business and financial reporting.

Pros

  • Vendor Management - excellent contact tracking tied to purchase orders, payments, etc
  • Financial consolidation - JD Edwards EnterpriseOne was easy to interface with at the GL level, bringing in records from other systems and consolidating them into the chart of accounts
  • Security - JD Edwards EnterpriseOne was clearly built for the enterprise model carefully constructing permission access models and applying them to business objections so you can get a fine grain level control.

Cons

  • The interface is aging - The application has been around quite a while. Even with the more modern UI, it still feels like a 90's application and doesn't provide the quick augmentation options like what is found in NetSuite or cloud apps.
  • A premise based - It's an application that was built to run on mini/mainframe environments, which were great for its time. However, in comparison to the hand's free environments in the cloud, it requires more iron and humans to maintain the solution.
  • Speed to roll out new business models - It felt like, once you deployed a business setup, it was difficult to change and add new business features, especially those that contradict previous directions.
  • ROI was achieved within three years due to consolidation of multiple businesses.
JD Edwards Enterprise is more robust than NetSuite or MSD GP. It has significantly more experience in the field. However, it's also an aging application and not nearly as agile as those two. I've also found resources to be less expensive with a broader knowledge of the business and the applications as opposed to the newer solutions.
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne is excellent when you are looking for multiple smaller businesses to roll into another for business reporting and consolidation. Because of the robust GL controls, it's excellent for bringing that information together, collating it, and then reporting on it. We also found that it was self-evident for auditors to be able to review the trial and understand what was done, with minimal hand-holding.
