The second message is for both EnterpriseOne and World customers: 

“With your current emphasis on quick payback, would you like to have an interactive tool to quantify the benefits of upgrading your JD Edwards World or JD Edwards EnterpriseOne applications? What about a customizable tool that can show the savings associated with upgrading old IBM servers to new IBM Power servers?
IBM and JD Edwards created a web-based, upgrade tool to help you identify strategic drivers, conduct a brief benefits analysis, and demonstrate the significant value you could achieve by upgrading your current ERP solution and your IBM platform. This tool also has a video tutorial to provide a user-friendly experience and show you how to tailor the parameters to meet your specific needs and business scenarios.
