The Oracle VM Templates for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne is the fastest way to install JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.0. The VM Templates are suitable for fully production environment or sandbox purposes. This session will focus in how to install a complete set of JD Edwards VM Templates in home-office environment using a minimum set of hardware and network infrastructure, without affect the overall performance. Oracle provide the Templates as well as the virtualization tools for free download in a fully functional demo environment in which we'll analyze the hardware requirements, networking, storage, virtualization options as well as post installation steps like the deployment server and development workstation installation. This session's goal is to facilitate and encourage you to start embrace this technology, once virtualization is not a simple market trend; it's a reality and the simple fact to understand how things works may give you a holistic vision of how this system is engineered.

INFOCUS 2012 - General Information

What is INFOCUS & why is the community SO excited?

JD Edwards INFOCUS is a new product-focused event, replacing our Regional events. This new event will offer in-depth education into JD Edwards EnterpriseOne in a way that isn’t possible at COLLABORATE due to space limitations. The community has been waiting for its own event since 2005 to really take a deeper look into products and re-invigorate the year long SIG programs.  This event promises to do both while complementing the learning and work done at COLLABORATE.  Better yet, it's in Denver - the home of JD Edwards. The JD Edwards Oracle stratagy teams couldn't be more excited about the homecoming.

How is it different from COLLABORATE? 

COLLABORATE is still where you hear the big Oracle announcements and industry news; the only global conference focusing on the Oracle ecosystem at the macro level. COLLABORATE is the only JD Edwards customer-led event that will offer Fusion education, JD Edwards World education, new product releases and strategies from Oracle and the partner community, plus an emphasis on professional development and executive content. Quest will continue to offer targeted networking by special interest and geographic location at COLLABORATE and provide our user communities to kick off many of their plans for the year after they've learned the macro level view of what's coming down the road. JD Edwards INFOCUS is where you dig into the product at the micro level.

Who should attend?

The end users of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne (those that use the products on a daily or near-daily basis) who are looking for focused education should attend the new JD Edwards INFOCUS event.  Also those JD Edwards World customers looking to migrate to EnterpriseOne will find the type of education available extremely valuable. Education will dig into enhancements, techniques and tips for your tower modules and more.
The Oracle JD Edwards customers that make decisions for their company, should attend COLLABORATE for the high-level education, professional development, announcements and networking opportunities provided there. Education there will continue to address best practices, roadmaps and usability of your towers. JD Edwards INFOCUS is complementary to COLLABORATE so if you fall into both categories, we recommend attending both events to receive the complete spectrum of education available to make the most out of your ERP.
