Advanced Job Forecasting

Accurate and Auditable Forecasting – Create formulas, methods of computation, and forecasts to accurately calculate the projected final amounts and units associated with a specified job.

Outbound Inventory Management

Empowering Suppliers – Outbound Inventory Management enables sell-side Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) and consigned inventory for a more streamlined order-to-cash process. The system empowers suppliers to improve customer collaboration and loyalty, thereby increasing sales while reducing the risk of stock-outs.

Rental Management

Streamline and strengthen your rental operations with improved visibility into all your business processes –

Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Rental Management enables customers to manage the rental of capital equipment, inventory items, and selling of associated products and services. Manage the entire rental process from creating the contract to receiving and servicing the returned equipment. View what equipment is currently rented out, down being serviced, and what is on reserved for future rentals.

Work Center Load Review Calendar

  • New technology provides a simplified, modern user experience.
  • Real-time graphical view of scheduled operations and remaining capacity for any work center in a calendar view
  • Quick access to additional operation and work order details
  • Context-based exits to inquiry and maintenance applications required for scheduling decisions, and adjustments

 

One View Financial Statements

For customer who have OneView for the EnterpriseOne Financial module, you now have the ability to create book quality financial statements or use the pre-built financial statements provided. The functionality provided includes specific formatting, calculations and totals to support the needs of financial reporting. This is a nice feature for end-users to create their own financial statement reports, including balance sheets, and income statements.

Revenue Recognition

Oracle is delivering software updates for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne addressing new joint standards for recognition of revenue issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) and the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB).

The effective date for public entities is expected to start with reporting periods beginning on or after December 15, 2017. The effective date for nonpublic entities will be deferred for one year to annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018 and interims beginning after December 15, 2019. Early adoption is permitted one year earlier than these dates.

The new reporting requirements are extensive and require changes to financial systems and processes to collect the necessary data—even if the application of the new accounting standard results in no significant change in the reported revenue amounts.

New Tools to enable your business to focus on what it does best, (your business) not IT

The development team at JD Edwards has provided a number of strategic initiatives to better serve customers and allow their organization to spawn “citizen developers”.

  • User Defined Objects – (UDO)
    • E1 Page Composer (9.2 Apps / 9.2 Tools)
  • Security – no more 10 character restriction on user ID and passwords
  • Simplified Upgrade Process

 

User Defined Objects

User Defined Objects (UDO) are web objects created using the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne web interface. You can create UDOs for your own use, view UDOs others have created, or share your UDOs so others can view and use them. Your ability to perform any of these tasks depends on the permissions you and others have been granted by your administrator.

Become a “CITIZEN DEVELOPER”

 

    Queries – fields and QBE columns you select from a form and add conditions to in order to make the search criteria more specific.

    Grid Formats – a selection of the columns you choose to display, the sequence in which you want them displayed, and how information is displayed in your grid.

    Composite Application Framework (Cafe1) – a user interface framework that enables JD Edwards EnterpriseOne applications to integrate with multiple third-party content and applications, as well as other EnterpriseOne applications.

    One View Reports – a Business Intelligence (BI) Publisher data model, a BI Publisher report, the report definition for the One View Report, which is the metadata for the report and resides in JD Edwards EnterpriseOne.

    One View Watchlists – a collection of items that match user-defined criteria and contain information to which users have selected to be alerted.

    EnterpriseOne Pages (Classic Pages) – the first screen end-users see when they log into EnterpriseOne. They are HTML files and can contain any HTML-enabled functionality, such as interactive process flows, URL links and web pages, company logos, and so on. Active Pages are a type of Classic Page that includes enhanced content provided by the Oracle JET (JavaScript Extension Toolkit) library.

    Composed Pages (Tools 9.2.0.2)  EnterpriseOne pages with user defined layouts that you can create and design. These pages provide a user experience that enables you to access multiple pieces of content from a single page: web pages, EnterpriseOne application forms, One View reports, Classic Pages, Designer Panes, Watchlist Panes (Tools 9.2.0.3), OBIEE objects, and ADF applications. Composed Pages at runtime are supported on mobile devices.

    Images (Tools 9.2.0.2) – create images outside of EnterpriseOne using any image editor, then upload them to EnterpriseOne. Use Image Manager to create, modify, and save images.

 

Security

Administrators can enable or disable the user defined object (UDO) features, as well as set up security for viewing, creating, and modifying individual UDOs.

UDO security features in the Security Workbench to enable administrators to control:

  • Which UDO features are available in EnterpriseOne
  • Who can create UDOs for their own personal use
  • Who can request to publish (or share) UDOs with other users
  • Who can view/use shared UDOs created by other users
  • Who can modify shared UDOs created by other users

 
Secure FTP (SFTP) for Media Objects – Secure FTP (SFTP) for media object access on the HTML Server and Business Services Server is configurable using Server Manager.

Enhanced Database Security – For an installation, all tables delivered by the Platform Pack installer are locked down.

Simplified Upgrade Process

This upgrade process allows customers on EnterpriseOne 9.1 or 9.0 (update 2) to upgrade to EnterpriseOne 9.2 by applying only the incremental changed objects. This upgrade “uplift” methodology reduces the amount of code/objects that are changed during the upgrade, therefore reducing the time needed to retrofit and test when upgrading.

If you are considering upgrading to EnterpriseOne 9.2 here are some things you may want to know, and new features you may find interesting.
