I wouldn't recommend EnterpriseOne for small enterprises because the cost-benefit doesn't work out. But for large enterprises, it's a very good and cost-effective solution that's competitive with other products like SAP. I would rate EnterpriseOne nine out of ten.

I am a reseller. I am not a regular user of it, I'm an admin user of it and I am not aware of the application part of it. New users can use the solution as a web implementation of the application and it is a user-friendly application. I’d recommend the product to others. I would rat ether solution eight out of ten.

My advice to others is JD Edwards EnterpriseOne is excellent. It has multiple features and business processes of the industry, especially the manufacturing industry, out of the box. There are fewer customizations required. It can meet, 90 to 95 percent of the standard business processes' out-of-box functionality. It is a very good solution from a business point of view. I rate JD Edwards EnterpriseOne a nine out of ten.

My advice to others is they should know the way the world has changed post-pandemic. They should think about cloud solutions so they aren't dependent on hosting it on their premise. Somebody has to be in person available to support this solution. I rate JD Edwards EnterpriseOne a nine out of ten.

Oracle is my company's partner, and JD is an Oracle product. It's a partner to my company, and it's a client partner, but they have a license to a product version, and they also have Oracle support. There is an Oracle support portal; we ask a question, the client asks a question, and the client asks another question. We have had discussions with Oracle about this product. If you purchase this product, you will receive Oracle support for the initial days. When you buy JD Edwards products, the first step that you will need is JD Edwards implementation. For each model that you purchase, you will require the services of some functional experts. When you purchase it as a product, you will be purchasing some models from them. You will require a financial model as well as supply chain models. For each model, you will undoubtedly require supply chain, finance, and consulting. They will be responsible for the product's implementation. I would definitely recommend this solution because I have had a great experience working with this product as a developer. I would rate JD Edwards EnterpriseOne an eight out of ten.

The deployment is handled through a third party; in which we have a team of consultants. They handle everything, from the setup, to the implementation, to the training. My advice to others is that they use what is available in the system and not attempt to exceed its capacity. I rate JD Edwards EnterpriseOne as a five out of ten.

Make sure that you have the right strategy on whether you're going to support it internally or you're going to hire an external vendor for it. It needs a specialized skill set; it is not something that anyone can just support. I would rate it an eight out of 10. This is based on what I've heard from my customers and people who use other solutions. I haven't worked with too many other products to give a fair comparison.

We used to use the Data Access Studio (DAS) to extract data from EnterpriseOne, although we now use Oracle OBIEE for that. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Most of my experience is with on-premises deployments, although I have also worked in an environment where we hosted it on the cloud. If you have a cloud-based deployment then it's managed and maintained by the vendor, although you can still have your own customizations that are unique to the business. The vendor continuously improves this product, basing their changes according to the feedback provided by customers. At this point in time, it is difficult to asks for specific features because they're very compatible with any other system in the market. They are very strong in the manufacturing, construction, and engineering industries. My advice for anybody who is implementing JD Edwards is to make sure that all of your processes are stabilized and standardized. Follow the best practices. Make sure that the processes are not coming from somebody who had good ideas 60 years ago but in reality, are no longer effective. The best thing to do is make sure that the data is clean and you have the blueprints for the business processes according to best practices. I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.

In around 2007, JD Edwards went through a dip and most customers moved to other solutions. Here in South Arica, most government institutions and other clients actually started buying SAP. The company then started doing quite a bit of research and made drastic improvements. Today there are few ERP systems that can actually compete with JD Edwards EnterpriseOne. For a long time already, it's been possible to run the solution on any mobile app. I like the fact that there is competition because you need different ERP's that work in certain sectors or certain industries and don't always try to cover everything. For example, there are certain ERP's which are very strong in financial institutions. I would rate this solution a 10 out of 10.

When looking for a new product, definitely consider: * Stability * IT technology * Value

Hi, Has your enterprise leveraged UiPath Processing Mining for Oracle EBS or JD Edwards ERP to mine Procure-to-Pay (P2P), Order-to-Cash (O2C), etc. processes?  If so, how was it done? How much time did it take?  Any tips and recommendations are greatly appreciated.

I think they could maybe expand the financial side. It's not complex but they could perhaps bring in things like the IMS. Aside from that, I think the manufacturing is really good. I think it's one of the best of all the ERPs, they have very good manufacturing. It's difficult to pinpoint additional features to include because everything depends on your company and the industries and clients you work with because normally what JD Edwards does is follow the needs of the client and industry standard specifics. They constantly make small improvements and implement innovations. That said, I would like to see more use cases so new customers can see references from existing customer experiences in different industries.

I would like to see the HR features enhanced with respect to localization for South Africa and other countries. They have perhaps 12 localizations but I think that for countries like South Africa, where the payroll system is unique, they should start investing more heavily. I would like to see more training documentation, or alternatively, training that you can do without having to go offsite. Unfortunately, when training with Oracle, it is quite expensive. Also, the instructors come from India and the dialect is very difficult for people from South Africa to understand. Consequently, a lot of people feel that it's a waste. It could have been very good but they didn't understand what the trainer was saying. This is a big thing that I would like to see more with. The documentation that they have is good, but it's very expensive so people would rather not buy it.

What don't they tell you about ERP? Turns out there's plenty left unsaid. There's actually an 80% marketwide failure rate measured by cost overrun, time to go-live and expected functionality - granted, getting the system up a month later isn't the end of the world, but a 2x budget overrun is no laughing matter.  CIO's have also expressed disappointment in having sufficient budget to finish th...

Over the past few months, political coverage reminded me of a Winston Churchill quote – “A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get it’s pants on”. Living in a world of competing politicians and contentious media, there were seemingly plenty of lies for both sides to yelp about. I thanked my lucky stars that in the business of ERP, we don’t deal in lies as the c...
