I work at a university and am looking for the best ERP solution.
Which product would you choose: JD Edwards EnterpriseOne or Oracle Fusion? What are the pros and cons?
Thank you for your help.
Oracle has a better solution via the cloud which would help to avoid infrastructure-related efforts, expenses, and related challenges. On the other hand, JD Edwards has its own pluses. I understand that you may not get major enhancements going forward with JD Edwards which will not be the case with regard to Oracle. If these are not the only two choices, Microsoft Dynamics 365 may be the one you are looking for.

If your company it's midsize, and you a need a good ERP for your back office, supply chain and others, I would recommend you to go for a cloud solution.Pay attention to:
Cloud'S ERP are to be used with the best business flow they offer, that's mean don't customize, just the legal requirements not supported as a standard solution on the ERP. Second, define your needs before going to the market and start looking for a Cloud Erp with a cloud solution you just need a good internet connection to assure the constant connection. You're not going to buy hardware for the application nor other equipments to deploy Erp or databases.
Must of the ERP maintenance, will be done by the supplier, such a constant updates, database support, Erp errors, etc.
You could concentrate yours efforts in your business, no in the IT support (always it is going to be required, but smaller scale).
You can go for a solution like Oracle Cloud Erp.
It is complete, integrated, a lot of help for easy configuration, many templates for data upload, and data integration.
In the other hand, have a good support, Business intelligence integrated and tools for reporting.
You can integrate the Cloud Erp solution with tax software, if required. And very good tools for budget planning and control.
I hace not worked in rhe field of renewable energy but I'm sure Oracle have experience in that field.
Great answer from @Felix Daniel Bravo Pérez. I would add the following:
- What is your company strategy with regards to IT applications - if its a Microsoft company then it would be remiss not to review their offering as it's integrated and can scale
- how important is the industry footprint for you - are you looking for a billing engine that is renewable-based? ask for references from ERP providers.
- how many users are you looking at (professional and part-time) as that will impact which cloud ERP you consider - Netsuite and Acumatica have very interesting licensing options which means 'per user' is not too important.
Most importantly - when you say 'ERP' do you mean full ERP or Financials and procurement? that makes a big difference.

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...
