Presentation Title: JD Edwards World Update, BI and Oracle Edge Applications
Speaker: Mr Mike McCormick
Company: Vivo Energy
Presentation abstract: 3 years ago Vivo Energy took over Shell’s Downstream operations in Africa and inherited an old A7.3 version of JDE World. In Vivo Energy we regard JDE as the ‘Single Source of the Truth’ and in October 2013 we upgraded to A9.3.1; at the same time we embarked upon a BI journey - we would like to share the highs and lows of our experience in both areas. Once the JDE upgrade and BI work was complete we decided to look into potential solutions to improve our Sales and Operations Planning, we worked closely with Oracle over a period of 5 months culminating with us selecting Oracle Edge applications to support our S&OP requirements. As such we licensed Demantra, Strategic Network Optimisation and Hyperion and selected Avata as Oracle’s implementation partner. At the time of writing this extract we are in the early stages of the implementation phase but in November will share with you our progress to date.
