JD Edwards EnterpriseOne is a suite of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software that is developed and sold by Oracle Corporation.
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne contains more than 80 separate application modules designed to support a wide range of business processes. The suite includes supply chain management (SCM) software as well as applications for financial management, project management, enterprise asset management, order management, manufacturing operation management and operational reporting. The software suite also features mobile applications that support both iOS and Android and can be used on smartphones and tablets.
EnterpriseOne was originally developed by J.D. Edwards, an ERP vendor that released the first version of the suite in 1997 under the name JD Edwards OneWorld. The name was changed to JD Edwards EnterpriseOne after J.D. Edwards was acquired by PeopleSoft Inc. in 2003. In 2005, Oracle acquired PeopleSoft, and with it the JD Edwards technology. The following year, Oracle announced that it would continue to develop and support JD Edwards EnterpriseOne indefinitely.
Oracle also still markets a separate suite called JD Edwards World, which was a predecessor to the EnterpriseOne line. The two product lines share a common application architecture, but JD Edwards EnterpriseOne offers more functionality than JD Edwards World does. JD Edwards EnterpriseOne also includes a Web-based user interface and runs on multiple hardware platforms, while World runs only on IBM's System i servers.
