Abstract:

Throughout its decades as a venerable and veteran ERP system, JD Edwards has seen—and has ignited—many disruptive and evolving paradigms. That trend never ceases as technology continuously advances and JD Edwards continuously innovates. We have long conquered the paradigm of traditional, transactional ERP. Today we are firmly established in the paradigm of digital ERP with Release 22 and the JD Edwards digital platform. And now we are on the crest of the next wave: intelligent ERP. What does this future of ERP hold for us? We will analyze the data we already have for deeper insights. We will leverage the intelligence of external systems. We will not simply react, but predict, the best course of action. Your JD Edwards system will act as a business partner and trusted advisor as humans and machines cooperate toward nimble, agile, and inventive business processes. The wave is coming, and JD Edwards is making waves.
