IBM’s New Server for J.D. Edwards Customers

Larger small businesses, need stable and powerful servers to power their enterprise resource applications (ERP). 5,000 customers use J.D. Edwards software which powers small-medium sized businesses and combines customer relations, financial management, human resources and so much more.
With Oracle’s recent inheritance of J.D. Edwards’ customers via their January purchase of PeopleSoft, IBM launched a new server to reassure customers of its support for J.D. Edwards.
Network World writes Intended for businesses with fewer than 100 seats of ERP (enterprise resource planning) software, the package is called the IBM System i 520 Solution Edition for Oracle’s J.D. Edwards EnterpriseOne.
It includes integrated hardware and software with enough disk storage to support an application suite including asset lifecycle, customer relationship, financial, human capital, project, supplier and supply chain management.
Oracle executives have been making efforts in recent months to retain the 5,000 J.D. Edwards customers they inherited when the company purchased PeopleSoft Inc. in January.
