Maximising Value from EnterpriseOne
According to Oracle’s latest figures, 75% of E1 users have made the move to release 9.2 and are now preparing to embrace the strategy of continuous delivery and adoption. To benefit fully from this strategy, E1 customers need to decide when is the right time for them to implement the new updates. In addition to the annual Tools Release in November, Oracle JD Edwards has established a regular cadence for the release of new features and functionality. Each new Electronic Software Update (ESU) contains all of the previous updates, so customer wont be missing out on features if they don’t implement straight away. However, to make the most of continuous delivery, customers shouldn’t build too much of a technical debt by delaying for an extended time.
Making an informed decision about when to take the ESU includes understanding the impact the update will have on the business, plus an accurate view of the time and costs associated with the technical retrofit. To support customers on 9.2 in their strategy of staying code current, DWS has developed a portfolio of professional services:
- Code current change event planning
- Code current technical retrofitting
- Continuous innovation-as-a-service
By keeping code-current you are better able to respond to innovation requests made by the business, you benefit from the significant investment that Oracle continues to make, and you become more agile; ultimately achieving a better return on your investment in maintenance.
Whether you have committed to continuous innovation and want to discuss your strategy, or simply want to make an informed decision about the impact of a future ESU project, we’re here to help.
Let us know who you are and one of the team will be in touch.
