Hi All

Mars 2002. It was about 9:00 am. I have just arrived to my first day in JDEdwards. You know, just forget about JDEdwards for now. It was the day I met my new friends: Evandro Mirres, Gustavo Barizon, Rodrigo Uzeda, Alessandro Braga, Eduardo Brizolla and Cia. We did a lot. Good times (I have had the time of my life... I think I could do a music with that!)

Well, back to JDEdwards now I am honored to be invited by two of them to post in this blog: Barizon and Uzeda! And I say honored, because, you know I like a lot these guys!

At that time we where in Rio (How I miss it!), working in that crazy project (White Martins solutions) who gaves us the startup to the JDEdwards road. Now they are in the United States and I am in France. So now I assume a chalenge: connect Europe, EUA and South America and make it more close this JDEdwards comunity.

For now, I can tell you that I have just started my researchs in Europe in the JDE subjects, but can tell you that we have a Big market here. For those that comes from EUA, maybe it was interesting take a look on UK market and to the brazilian fellows be up-to-date about Portugal market. They have a lot of oportunities there. To the other countries it is a matter of language skills. Pay attention also to immigration issues (if one of your parents was born in any country in Europe, see for double-nacionality rights).

For now I will stay here, but I will be alert and try to extend to you all the news from France and Europe.

Thanks and see you later!

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne in IPad

Do you think that will be possible to use JDE in IPad?

I was thinking about that. I've tried many times with my Iphone, but it not works. Actually the JDE logon screen opens, I can enter with the user/passwd, select the login environment and I got into JDE. But when I try to open a program, no grid or form appear, nothing.

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.0 is Safari certified, but the Iphone version doesn't render the grid / form in appropriate way, maybe because the javascript runtime for the events - as we know, a lot of processing behind the scenes happens when we simply change the line in some applications.

Another point of view is: Iphone is pretty small. The minimum size screen avoid an extensive use of the phone to be used for example as a sales force automation. But the thing changes the figure with Ipad. Could you imagine your sales team carrying IPads and taking the order online on JDE? I believe that can be a lot of more utilities for the business to IPad. Since for sales force to an executive to check the sales as graphics in embedded BI Publisher applications...

And about you? Do you think IPad is good for business? Is IPad good for JDE? Is someone available to develop JDE Solutions for IPad? If so, please contact me and we can start a project to deliver JDE to IPad platform.

In this meantime, follow an "JDE IPad Concept".

Bajaj Electricals Light Up India with Oracle

This is an interesting video about Bajaj Electricals that chose Oracle as their platform. This a well produced material and you can watch in HD also. Of course JD Edwards is part of this video: pay attention to 4'35''! Enjoy!
