Oracle Launches ‘Business Accelerator’ for J.D. Edwards EnterpriseOne
November 13, 2007 Alex Woodie
Oracle last week introduced a new Business Accelerator product aimed at speeding the implementation of the J.D. Edwards EnterpriseOne ERP software.
According to Oracle, its Business Accelerators are a series of tools, wizards, and workflows that help business partners and consultants perform “rapid, best-practice implementations.” The software enables partners to develop “interactive questionnaires” that help narrow the exact requirements of the ERP customer, while retaining a maximum degree of flexibility, Oracle says.
Oracle previously offered a Business Accelerator for its E-Business Suite, and with the addition of the Business Accelerator for EnterpriseOne version 8.12, it now has two. In other words, there are no Business Accelerators for PeopleSoft Enterprise, J.D. Edwards World, Siebel CRM, or other properties currently owned by Oracle.
Twelve specific countries are supported with the Business Accelerator for J.D. Edwards, EnterpriseOne, according to Oracle. All supported EnterpriseOne platforms, including Windows, Unix, Linux, and i5/OS, are supported with the Business Acclerator.
EnterpriseOne is the next-generation client-server ERP system developed by J.D. Edwards in the mid to late 1990s as a way to move away from the J.D. Edwards World product, which only ran on the AS/400, and to get a product that ran on Unix and Windows NT.
