JDE Upgrades

Working with JD Edwards customers for over twenty (20) years, has enabled Minardi Consulting to develop an extensive depth of knowledge and unmatched expertise in EnterpriseOne and World software.

Along with our Upgrade Methodology we follow the guidelines set by the Oracle’s Upgrade Project and Technology Office (UPTO) for planning and executing your upgrade, specifically:

Planning

How you plan your upgrade project will set the stage for making your go-live date. By focusing on a technical upgrade or a slightly more complex functional project, your ability to complete your upgrade on time and on budget is very good. But you need to assemble the right team, obtain buy-in from your organization, create a communication plan and determine the need for assistance to augment your staff.

Understanding your current environment is the first step. When a current environment is properly analyzed, the project schedule can be minimized and the level of effort properly estimated.

The Minardi Consulting group can assist your organization to complete the Upgrade Planning Phase. Specifically: evaluating net change, analyzing your customizations and creation of a project plan that meets your needs.

Execution

Properly planned and well analyzed upgrades need to focus on the following 5 Key Elements or “Rocks” in order to be successful:

  • Data
  • Code
  • Integrations
  • Testing
  • Training

Minardi Consulting offers a full range of Upgrade Project Management and Consulting support services to successfully assist your organization with “scaling the mountain” in order to upgrade efficiently and with minimal disruption to your business.
