Oracle Brings JD Edwards EnterpriseOne to the iPad

— October 04, 2011

Oracle this week announced support for its enterprise resource planning solution JD Edwards EnterpriseOne on the Apple iPad.
“Customers do not want to develop costly customized applications to meet increased demand for anytime, anywhere access to important business data,” Lyle Ekdahl, group vice president and general manager for JD Edwards at Oracle, said in a statement. “By delivering the first complete ERP suite that can run entirely on the iPad, Oracle is enabling Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne customers to access and update business information and insights, regardless of their location.”
Key features of the iPad app, according to the company, include the following:
  • Enhanced iPad user experience with the addition of application-specific gestures to create intuitive and efficient interactions
  • Context-sensitive awareness minimizing the number of touch interactions required by presenting the correct touchscreen keyboard for specific user data entry tasks
  • Specialized functionality tailored for field technicians, including instant access to important attachments, technical manuals and work order documentation, as well as one-touch access to Google Maps for driving directions
  • Support for standard security and deployment features to enable worry-free mobile deployments
“The rise of enterprise mobility is empowering organizations to dramatically improve business processes and workforce collaboration,” Mike Fauscette, group vice president for software business solutions at IDC, said in a statement. “Facilitating remote access to ERP applications is a growing trend and is becoming an immediate priority for organizations. In particular, tablets -- such as the iPad -- will support enterprises’ mobility initiatives, offering an effective option for field technicians and traveling workers.”
JD Edwards Enterprise One customers on releases 8.12 or 9.0 can access the new mobile capabilities by applying a JD Edwards EnterpriseOne tools update from the Update Center.
