A recent survey by Quest found that companies will focus on these top 5 JD Edwards priorities for projects in the next 12-18 months.

JD Edwards is an enterprise resource planning software system that is highly regarded for its ability to integrate business operations across a company’s departments. JDE has been widely adopted by businesses across industries, from manufacturing and distribution to financial services and retail.

As the JD Edwards community continues to grow and evolve, companies are focused on specific JDE projects that will help them stay competitive and streamline their operations.

A recent survey by Quest found that there are five JD Edwards projects that are top priorities for companies in the next 12-18 months. These priorities are:

1. Orchestrator

The Orchestrator is a powerful tool that allows companies to integrate external applications and interfaces with the ERP business data and logic.

With it, JDE customers can streamline their business processes and improve the user experience. This is why 44% of respondents in the Quest survey listed implementing or expanding Orchestrations as their top priority.

The Orchestrator has undergone significant updates and enhancements in recent years, making it even more valuable to customers.

2. Business Process Automation

Enhancing business process automation through JD Edwards functionality is a priority for many JDE customers.

Next-generation workflow capabilities in JD Edwards EnterpriseOne are empowering business analysts to design and deploy automated business processes without deep developer skills or complex customizations.

3. Staying Code-Current

Staying code-current is essential to keep your JD Edwards system updated with the latest product innovations. Continuous adoption remains a critical area of focus for almost 35% of organizations who participated in the Quest survey.

To help simplify the update process and eliminate manual efforts to stay code-current, Oracle’s Clayton Seeley and Dave Bilthuis provide new insights as they walk through the latest Update Manager improvements in this video.

4. Exploring Low-Code/No-Code Tools

Another 30% of survey respondents indicated that utilizing low-code or no-code tools was a near-term priority for their organizations. With logic extensions now available in EnterpriseOne Release 23, customers can extend application logic in a no-code/low-code way that is fast and simple, which will ultimately render traditional customizations obsolete.

Release 23 includes enhancements on process automation, workflows and orchestrations, logic extensions, Oracle Guided Learning, Data Visualizations, and much more.

With these improvements, JD Edwards customers can continue to leverage the platform for digital transformation and stay ahead of the curve in their industries.
