Quest’s annual Oracle JD Edwards Community Survey was sent out to JD Edwards users in the Quest community to learn more about how they are utilizing their JD Edwards solutions. The survey received 850 respondents from companies throughout the community. Respondents came from companies of different sizes, industries, and global reach.

To set the stage, let’s start with a little background information about what systems the respondents are running. Of the 850 respondents, 91 percent are running JD Edwards EnterpriseOne. The other nine percent are running JD Edwards World.
Results showed that 43 percent of respondents are on version 9.2, another 40 percent are running on 9.1, and the other 18 percent are on a version that is older the 9.1.

Is your organization considering (or currently) running JD Edwards in the Cloud?
While 10 percent of respondents currently running JD Edwards in the Cloud may seem like a small number, that is a big improvement over 2017 when nobody was. An additional 21 percent are considering moving their JD Edwards to the Cloud. Those who reported that they are not considering the move to Cloud cited cost, control, security concerns and transitioning to Cloud applications as their main reasons.
Out of the 10 percent who are running their JD Edwards in the Cloud, 37 percent are doing so on Oracle Public Cloud. Others are running on Amazon Web Services, third-party hosting providers, Microsoft Azure or other Cloud providers.
