With over 24,000 installations across the globe, JD Edwards ranks as one of the world’s most widely distributed and most successful Enterprise Software systems for medium-sized businesses. First introduced in 1977, the solution now belongs to Oracle, the world’s leading business software vendor. Oracle has dedicated 7,000 developers to JD Edwards alone, making it in this respect one of the two best supported systems in the world. Oracle guarantees that JD Edwards will be supported at least until 2029.
Even in its standard configuration, JD Edwards contains all the features and processes medium-sized businesses require. In addition, it can be further enhanced using numerous industry-specific, best-of-breed components. The system has a reputation for being highly affordable and adaptable. Its open standards and service-oriented architecture (SOA) help reduce implementation costs.
Oracle’s most current versions are JD Edwards EnterpriseOne (9.1) and JD Edwards World (A9.3). FSS has spent two years parameterizing and configuring JD Edwards EnterpriseOne so that it ideally suits Swiss medium-sized businesses. We call the resulting all-inclusive system SSKS – and have successfully introduced it to the market. FSS draws on twenty years of experience to serve as the Oracle systems integrator for the 150 or so international enterprises that use JD Edwards at their Swiss facilities.
Oracle is the world market leader with respect to IT platforms, middleware, databases, business software and programming languages (Java). It offers the world’s fastest servers (Exadata X3 with 26 TB RAM), and ranks among the leading storage vendors (Sun). Thanks to Solaris, Oracle possesses a state-of-the-art object-oriented operating system. What is more, Oracle is the only Enterprise Software vendor to provide complete IT architectures – from server farms in datacenters all the way to printed forms in the corporate design of the customer.
