JD Edwards upgrade for a Petrochemical company

Client: Large Fertiliser and Petrochemical Company from Middle-East.

Challenge:

  • There are multiple challenges during upgrade from both technical & user acceptance point of view. Listed below are few top challenges which has driven the overall project path EPIQ team has proposed.
  • Tools version 9.2.4.5 doesn’t support existing deployment server OS Win 2008 R2.
  • With tools 9.2* encrypting system user’s credentials with SITEKEY is mandatory, while tools 9.1.5.3 doesn’t support SITEKEY encryption.
  • Tools 9.2.4* doesn’t support legacy ActiveX control, hence the OLE objects need to convert to newer version.
  • Solution:Based on the listed challenges EPIQ team has proposed below listed the server migration & multi foundation approach to keep PROD environment unaffected with tools upgrade activities
  • EPIQ team has migrated the deployment server from Win 2008 R2 to Win 2016 without affecting the existing project lifecycle & development process.
  • To support the SITEKEY, EPIQ has followed the multi-foundation approach and post the PROD tools upgrade, both the systems were merged.
  • The third-party application was used to convert the OLE objects to Non-OLE objects.

Key Takeaway:

JD Edwards upgrades should be carefully planned, well tested and conducted when the JD Edwards business is sufficiently stable to permit disruption. JD Edwards upgrade projects should also include JD Edwards users from all affected areas. This ensures that eventual JD Edwards users are well trained and JD Edwards users are informed about JD Edwards updates.
