Forza Consulting has been providing support on JD Edward upgrades for many years. The upgrade of an ERP system can be in respect to a technical or a functional upgrade. With a technical upgrade only the tools release of JD Edwards is upgraded to a new version. A functional upgrade is more complex: all modified programs have to be upgraded to a new version and all processes have to be tested again. Forza Consulting has experience with both types of upgrades and can help you to successfully carry out the upgrade in as short a time as possible.

When it concerns a technical upgrade the tools release of JD Edwards is upgraded to a new version. The functional release remains the same. A technical upgrade to the newest release will improve the user interface and provide new possibilities with regard to the features of JD Edwards, such as working with notifications and combining screens (CafeOne). Forza Consulting regularly carries out technical upgrades. Prior to each tools release upgrade we hold an upgrade workshop during which we develop a detailed approach together with our customer.

Functional upgrade

A functional upgrade generally involves a somewhat greater challenge. With a functional upgrade all the programs are ‘renewed’. All modified programs have to be upgraded to a new version and all processes have to be tested again. As more programs are modified or when new programs are developed, on the basis of JD Edwards functions, then this increases the impact of the upgrade.

Starting from release 9.2 it will be possible to limit this impact to just the objects that are modified by Oracle in a new release: this will simplify the functional upgrade. Forza Consulting has the tools and knowledge in house to determine the ROI and business case of the upgrade for your organization. With our Upgrade Assessment we can structurally map out your upgrade challenge and help you to prepare the upgrade.
