5 reasons why DWS for your next JDE project

Customers upgrade for many reasons: to improve productivity, streamline business processes, take advantage of new functionality, introduce better mobility to the workforce and eliminate the risk that comes from relying upon an unsupported software release.

Upgrading your JD Edwards (JDE) system is a significant decision for any business. It’s not just about staying current with technology; it’s about enhancing productivity, streamlining processes, and mitigating risks. With so much at stake, selecting the right partner for your upgrade project is paramount.



With a legacy spanning 25 years, DWS boasts a flawless track record in delivering successful upgrade projects. Since 1998, we’ve been the go-to trusted provider of development and technical services, aiding companies in customising, integrating, extending, upgrading, and supporting their enterprise software applications.

Much of our success is down to the skills and experience of our people. Our technical team has amassed a wealth of experience in implementing, enhancing, maintaining, and customizing Oracle’s JD Edwards OneWorld/EnterpriseOne systems.



At DWS, excellence is not just a goal; it’s our standard. Our track record speaks volumes, with an average 0% defect rate across all projects. Our clients witness remarkable reductions in their code footprint, up to and including an 86% reduction.

Customers who partner with DWS in their upgrade projects have been able to save 3-4 weeks on future projects, with delivery coming in within budget or under budget every time.



Innovation is at the heart of what we do. Our proprietary tools, Dimension Analyze and Dimension Professional, revolutionise the upgrade process. Dimension Analyze provides a comprehensive analysis of your system, meticulously comparing your production environment with a pristine one, to identify modifications accurately. No one else in the market goes to the level of detail that our tools uncover. This granular analysis empowers us to optimize your JDE E1 instance, potentially reducing the modified footprint by up to 75%. Our innovative approach ensures that your upgrade journey is not only seamless but also transformative.
