Andrews Consulting Group has just published a new study of Oracle’s strategy for EnterpriseOne and World. The paper, “The Transformation of JD Edwards Applications”, is based on months of discussions that Andrews Consulting Group held with Oracle executives. It is now available for download from this site.

 The paper answers a number of important questions, including:

  • What is Oracle’s Applications Unlimited strategy, and what are the implications of the strategy for EnterpriseOne and World customers?
  • Is Oracle serious about enhancing JD Edwards software indefinitely?
  • How will Oracle position JD Edwards solutions versus its upcoming Fusion Applications?
  • What is a service-oriented architecture (SOA) and does it have any value for me?
  • How will SOA make its way into JD Edwards applications?
  • Is it safe to invest in new JD Edwards applications or upgrade my existing ones?
