Reducing Installation Time Using Oracle VM Templates for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne

Oracle JDE VMs - EnterpriseOne 9.0.1 - 8.98.2 tools release

Public Announcement:
Announcing Availability of Oracle VM Templates for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne

Oracle announces the availability of Oracle VM templates for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne. Oracle VM Templates for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne provide an alternative to the traditional installation process, allowing customers and partners to bring up a fully functioning JD Edwards EnterpriseOne installation in days rather than weeks.

Three Oracle VM templates encapsulate preinstalled images of the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne enterprise server, database server, and HTML server. The templates eliminate the need to install the operating system, database, and web server components and completely by-pass the traditional JD Edwards EnterpriseOne installation process. New instances of the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne servers can also be provisioned within minutes.

The installation is built on a complete Oracle technology stack: Oracle VM, Oracle Enterprise Linux 5, Oracle Database 11g R1, Oracle Internet Application Server 10g R3, and JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.0 with Update 1.

The rapid time-to-value of this offering is ideally suited to implementations that leverage the Oracle Accelerate program. Wherever customers have a need to accelerate the application implementation phase using Oracle Business Accelerators, they will also realize similar benefit by accelerating the installation and technical configuration using Oracle VM templates.

Virtualizing JD Edwards EnterpriseOne servers in an Oracle VM environment brings other benefits beyond rapid installation. The number of physical servers required can often be reduced, thereby reducing acquisition, maintenance, and energy costs. And the ability to save and restore images of fully configured servers provides a powerful tool within a complete disaster recovery plan.

Oracle Encourages JD Edwards Customers to Hang Tight

http://www.itjungle.com/fhs/fhs102009-story05.html


by Alex Woodie
Ever since Oracle obtained JD Edwards several years ago, some JD Edwards customers have been skeptical about Oracle's commitment to the products, its commitment to customers, and its business application roadmap. Last week at the Oracle OpenWorld 09 conference in San Francisco, the software giant did its best to turn the skeptics into believers when it committed to supporting JD Edwards products for a decade, and promised to deliver the next-generation Fusion applications next year.
Oracle CEO Larry Ellison is not normally known for being the touchy-feely type. His hostile takeover of PeopleSoft in 2004 was both brutal and personal, and was an excellent example of his ruthless approach to achieving supremacy in the cutthroat enterprise application business.
But in a keynote speech from Oracle OpenWorld last Wednesday, Ellison made a rare display of understanding and compassion for his acquired customers. There was nothing emotional in Ellison's statement, nor anything to suggest that Oracle's strategy was wrong. But it does give a rare glimpse into the Oracle chief's outlook, and tells us that he doesn't always view customers as pawns in his power plays.
Here is what Ellison said:
"We understand that our customers have an enormous investment in Siebel applications, in E Business Suite applications, in JD Edwards applications, in PeopleSoft applications, a huge investment and commitment to those technologies," he told the audience. "And we're going to continue to enhance those applications for the next decade and beyond, we're absolutely committed to doing that."
He added: "We can afford to not only maintain the software you're running today, but also build the software you may want to move to tomorrow."
This is significant for JD Edwards shops that run on IBM Power Systems and System i technology because it shows that Oracle will continue to support and enhance products that run on i OS and i5/OS. Now, whether rivals Oracle and IBM will actually drop their gloves long enough to work together toward their System i and Power Systems customers' best interests will always be debated. But it's a show of good faith, which is something that has sometimes been lacking when Oracle discusses its overall strategy.
Ellison's statements are also significant because it suggests Oracle is continuing to be pragmatic about Fusion Applications, which the company said will become available sometime in 2010.
Oracle made a number of other announcements--it made a total of 47 announcements over the three-day show--and some of them had a JD Edwards angle. For example, a new release of Oracle's BI Applications now features a prebuilt integration for JD Edwards World, the company's only ERP product that runs exclusively on the IBM System i platform.
The BI integration was accomplished through a new adapter that integrates Oracle Financial Analytics, a module of the Oracle BI Applications, with Oracle's JD Edwards World Financial Management version A9.2.
According to Oracle, the integration enables front-line managers relying on JD Edwards World to improve the financial performance of their companies by giving them complete and timely information on their departments' expenses, payables, receivables, and revenue contributions.
Company executives at the show also showcased how the Primavera project management software works with its various ERP suites, including JD Edwards. Oracle acquired Primavera in October 2008.
Oracle also gave a heads up on a massive issue of security patches expected to be released this week. A total of 38 patches will be issued, including at least one for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne.

Oracle Open World - JD Edwards News

Hi there!

Since long I don't post anything! First of all, I'm sorry about that, but it's really hard to be out during one hole week and after get all work done!

So, I got a lot of material at Open World, I went in many "Hands on Labs", I tried to get as much networking as possible, and worked!

I'll publish these materials, since technical approaches in how to migrate from XE to 9.0 or how to create an BI Publisher application from scratch...

The Open World 2009 experience gave me more enthusiasm in JD Edwards... I could see by my eyes that Oracle is supporting and investing in JD Edwards, and even Larry Ellison in one speech, talked about JD Edwards.

I'd like to say thanks to Oracle by the opportunity to be there, and hope next year to be there!

Appreciation Events

Wednesday, October 14, 8:00 p.m. - 12:00 a.m. | Treasure Island, San Francisco

Don't Miss a Thing
This year, our annual concert celebration that says "thank you" to our customers and partners takes you back to the spectacular setting of historic Treasure Island-an idyllic island landmark in the San Francisco Bay.

Aerosmith
Leading the 2009 lineup of international superstars is one of the biggest bands of all time: Aerosmith. The "Bad Boys from Boston" have defined the style and sound of hard rock for nearly three decades with a seemingly endless list of hits, including "Dream On," "Sweet Emotion," "Back in the Saddle," "Walk This Way," "I Don't Wanna Miss a Thing," and "Amazing."

Roger Daltrey
Roger Daltrey is noted as a founder of the legendary rock band The Who, in the early 1960s. His energy and stage presence established The Who at the monumental Monterey Pop, Woodstock, and Isle of Wight music festivals, and his instincts for production carved the band's path through the era of stadium rock. While continuing to sing with The Who over the decades, Daltrey has also established himself as a film actor and solo concert performer. He takes the stage on Treasure Island with a complete solo lineup of music from The Who.

The Wailers
Also topping the evening's musical lineup, the Wailers bring the mesmerizing rhythms of reggae to the stage. As the greatest living exponents of Jamaica's reggae tradition, the Wailers have played to an estimated 24 million people across the globe and were the first reggae band to tour new territories on many occasions, including Africa and the Far East.

Three Dog Night
Three Dog Night, legendary music icons entering their fourth decade together, bring their record-shattering hits to the stage at Treasure Island this year at Oracle OpenWorld. In the years 1969 through 1974, no other group achieved more top 10 hits, moved more records, or sold more concert tickets than Three Dog Night, whose Top 40 hits include "Joy to The World," "Mama Told Me (Not To Come)," and "An Old Fashioned Love Song." Don't miss this live performance of your favorite Three Dog Night hits.

Shooter Jennings
Rounding out the night's musical lineup, Shooter Jennings (AKA Waylon Albright Jennings) brings country to the stage in a way that only the son of Waylon Jennings could. From his debut album Put The 'O' Back In Country to his big-screen debut in the 2005 biopic Walk the Line, where he played his father, to his subsequent albums and concert appearances, Jennings produces a sound that's nourished by tradition, acknowledges his family, and yet is entirely his own.
