INFOCUS Keynote: JD Edwards Roadmap
During the INFOCUS keynote, Gary Grieshaber, VP of Application Product Development and Strategy, shared exciting developments, including JD Edwards Release 24 scheduled for later this year. The mention of Generative AI also caught everyone’s attention, so we’re excited to see it in action in real-life use cases down the road.
The keynote also reinforced the importance of Customer Success Patterns, underscoring themes of automation, optimization, transformation, and acceleration. With CloudWorld taking place the week before, Grieshaber emphasized the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) and the seamless integration of Oracle Cloud Apps with JD Edwards, including OTM and Analytics.
In the next section of the keynote, Paul Houtkooper, VP of JD Edwards Product Development, offered us a glimpse into the current state of JD Edwards. Notable highlights include:
- A growing presence with 311 JDE customers on OCI
- An expanding user base of over 400 JDE hybrid Cloud customers
- More than 80 organizations transitioning to SaaS solutions
The real star of the show is JD Edwards Release 24, which will focus on improving customer experience with features like Automated Safety Stock and enhancements in inventory management. Houtkooper also introduced significant additions to Orchestrator Automations, an enhanced Workflow Monitor, and Task Tracking for streamlining workflow tasks and automating processes review. Moreover, significant Enterprise Automation was introduced for R24, including Oracle’s AI & ML App Accelerator, enabling JDE data analysis with Oracle’s sophisticated tools.
In a nutshell, we’re looking forward to what’s in store for the JD Edwards community!
INFOCUS goes beyond being a learning experience; it’s a chance to connect with and gain insights from fellow JD Edwards users. We take pride in being one of the largest and award-winning Oracle consulting groups in the United States, and our commitment to the JD Edwards community.
