4 Challenges You Face When Planning to Integrate JD Edwards

For many companies, their ERP – or enterprise resource planning software – is the lifeblood of their organization. These powerful systems help companies manage and streamline multiple critical business processes under one roof. Having a single, centralized system for your finances, human resources, supply chain management, e-commerce solutions, and customer service results in a more complete view of your company’s data.

Or at least, that is the idea behind an ERP. However, as today’s business systems have evolved, the need to be able to integrate your ERP across a diverse, even heterogeneous, IT ecosystem has grown. But ERPs, like JD Edwards, haven’t always played nice with other systems. As a result, any integration project involving an ERP can be up against a number of significant challenges to be successful.

Will Blockchain Modernize the B2B Supply Chain?

Supply chain management is a common – and critical – topic among CIOs. The supply chain has grown faster than business, with chains being fragmented and geographically dispersed. Add into that the lack of transparency due to isolated systems and siloed data, and it’s no wonder that the B2B supply chain has bubbled up to the critical list for IT leaders.

Enter a new and interesting potential tool in IT’s tool chest – blockchain. Blockchain’s feature set checks off some of the biggest challenges facing B2B organizations today. Namely, understanding the full scope of a product’s path to market in a transparent, secure, and immutable way.
