Presentation Title: How Cloud Convinced us to Upgrade
Speaker: Mr Warren Griffiths
Company: PizzaExpress
Co-presenter: Christian Fronteras - Redfaire
Presentation abstract: JD Edwards was nearing the end of its life within PizzaExpress. The company had already trialled a replacement strategy and were reviewing their options at the time. By upgrading to EnterpriseOne in the Cloud, the IT team at PizzaExpress has been able to simplify their IT infrastructure and reduce software maintenance costs. The E1 user interface (and especially E1 pages) has been well received by the user community and there are plans to review Mobile applications to widen its appeal within the group.

This is a story about how a complex thing can be made simple and how an organisation which uses JD Edwards Financials, Distribution, Manufacturing and Property Management to support its 500 restaurants can upgrade in a matter of months with limited internal and external resource.
