A global leader in building material manufacturer wanted to upgrade its JD Edwards landscape to unleash its full potential. This French giant is present across 35 countries with 6000+ users. These users use 16 Oracle applications which run on 500+ servers and receive 70+ oracle database instances on average. But effective and efficient upgrade, maintenance, and rollout required some roadblocks to be addressed.

The client wanted a streamlined and harmonized IT system across geographies capable of leveraging advanced functionalities that the higher JD Edwards version had to offer. Traditional upgrade approach would not only require high cost and client involvement but also would have taken very long time. On top of that, they required to run a pilot upgrade for all countries, maintaining a single interface for enterprise-wide reporting.

Having been their global partners for 15+ years, LTI stepped up to upgrade their JD Edwards Xe to 9.0. LTI leveraged its domain expertise and JD Edwards tools to accelerate the overall JD Edwards upgrade process. LTI developed a global template model to ensure standardization of business process. We leveraged our proprietary RetroDash and RetroSmart tools to identify de-customization areas and automate retrofitting. We also leveraged additional tools like JCART to perform automated configuration analysis and reporting. Regression testing was completed in a record time of 10 months.

Do you too want to upgrade your JD Edwards with massive reductions time, cost, and efforts? LTI can help with that.
