Do you need help with JD Edwards?
Whether you are upgrading JDE World, migrating to or managing JDE EnterpriseOne, or integrating with third parties, our team has seen it all. Click below for answers to some common JD Edwards questions.
How long does a World to World upgrade take?
What are the differences between technical, functional, and transformational upgrades?
A technical upgrade, sometimes referred to as a ‘like-for-like’ upgrade, keeps the software on the same platform and only implements changes to business processes that are required by the software. Technical upgrades are the fastest and least costly upgrades to complete. Functional upgrades add a layer of complexity by implementing new business processes and functionality that the company didn’t use before the upgrade; auto cash application, for example, when the company previously only applied cash manually. A transformational upgrade is the most complicated and can involve a re-platform and a re-engineering of business processes. For example, a World to EnterpriseOne migration is transformational.
We need to upgrade our IBM OS. Can we continue to run World A7.3?
World Migration to EnterpriseOne
We’re moving from World to EnterpriseOne. What are the most important training needs to consider?
Can we continue to use our IBM i AS/400 when we migrate to EnterpriseOne?
Over the years, our World users have built lots and lots of FASTRs. Is there a way to migrate these to EnterpriseOne?
JD Edwards released One View Financial Statements (OVFS) with EnterpriseOne 9.2. OVFS significantly reduces the time to convert FASTRs to E1 compared to prior release levels. In OVFS, the concept of row and column specifications and versions are very similar, if not identical to, FASTR. However, JD Edwards does not offer a conversion utility to directly convert FASTRs to E1 because the technologies underlying World and E1 are so different.
EnterpriseOne Functionality and Upgrades
Does JD Edwards support the new joint IASB/FASB revenue recognition accounting standards?
Yes, new functionality within the EnterpriseOne sales order processing, contract and service billing, and accounts receivable modules has been introduced to support the IASB/FASB revenue recognition standard. The system can be configured to record the performance obligation liability at the time of invoicing and subsequently record the recognition of revenue when the performance obligation is complete.
