    JD Edwards Technology Foundation/Blue Stack Announcement

    Oracle is simplifying the licensing of the underlying technology required to run JD Edwards EnterpriseOne. Oracle will no longer offer JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Technology Foundation (aka blue stack) to new customers. To minimize business impact, existing customers can continue to expand their Technology Foundation licenses with Oracle through December 31, 2013. After this date, customers may acquire additional licenses of IBM products from IBM. Customers who remain current on technical support fees will continue to receive technical support on Technology Foundation from Oracle through September 30, 2016. After this date, customers may contact IBM for options on IBM Software Subscription and Support.

    Oracle continues to offer Oracle Technology Foundation for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne (aka, Red Stack) and JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Core Tools and Infrastructure. For more information see the Frequently Asked Questions document. (Oracle Support Credentials Required to access this document)

    Oracle offers a migration program to the Oracle Technology Foundation (Red Stack) for customers on the Blue Stack. Contact for more details.

    Expiration Dates in EnterpriseOne

    JD Edwards EnterpriseOne stores calendar dates in Julian date format. The system allows two-digit dates to be entered to facilitate data entry. The system uses data dictionary item CENTCHG (CenturyChangeYear) to determine the century to use for populating data tables. The system also uses this data dictionary item when automatically populating the default effective through and expiration dates in some data tables.

    In releases Xe and ERP8.0, the default value for CENTCHG was set to 10. Thus dates populated using the CENTCHG default value are created as 12/31/2010. In release 8.9, the default value was set to 15, creating a date of 12/31/2015. In releases 8.10 through 9.0, the default value was set to 40, creating a date of 12/31/2040. Oracle recommends that this value be increased for users in the Xe, ERP8.0, and 8.9 releases as well as users who have upgraded from these releases to 8.10 or higher so that the software will supply new effective through dates further into the future.

    This document outlines the function of CENTCHG in the software and recommends a change to the CENTCHG data dictionary default as soon as possible. This document also introduces the Date Utility, a tool designed to assist users with identifying and resolving business data with potential date issues. The Date Utility is designed for use with the currently supported tools releases.

    Trimming the Fat of Labor Management

    An excellent article by Stephen Jannise, ERP Market Analyst from

    Excerpt - Motivation, flexibility, and direct management must all be present if a lean environment is going to be sucessful. When workers are assuming more responsibilities than ever before, management must start taking a more personable and inspirational approach to labor management. If workers are asked to stop functioning like machines and start thinking critically, they must be treated differently as well.
