4 Lessons from Successful JD Edwards Upgrade Projects | Lesson 4

This article shares the lessons we’ve learned to ensure successful JD Edwards upgrade projects so you don’t have to learn the hard way. It is the third in a four-part series by Richard Garraputa, resident JDE expert at Corning Data.

In Lesson One we talked about the importance of designing your project to fully deploy all upgrade features. In Lesson Two, we discussed teaching end users solutions to problems, rather than just showing them the technical tools. Lesson Three demonstrated just how much easier your system maintenance can be when you stay current with smaller upgrades.
