Oracle Ships 57 Mobile Apps for JD Edwards Enterprise Suite
Oracle, in a bid to take advantage of the ever increasing mobile customer base, has planned the rollout of 57 mobile applications for its JD Edwards EnterpriseOne business software suite. While Oracle has a number of ERP (enterprise resource planning) software products, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne is gaining popularity in industries such as agriculture, distribution and food production, where many workers are mobile in fields or on factory floors, rather than sitting at a desk.
“JD Edwards is one of the fastest-growing parts of Oracle’s business,” said analyst Ray Wang, founder and chairman of Constellation Research. The new apps are “a response to what customers have asked them to do.” The applications are supported with the use of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne version 9.1, and can be accessed at no additional charge by customers who have licensed the base software.

Sprint, in its role as a mobility reseller of Google Apps, will put its customer care, billing platform and device and network knowledge behind the offering. They will also offer add-ons like single sign on over and above selling varying deployment packages. With the inherent mobile focus that comes with moving to the cloud, Sprint hopes to work its own mobile device and network capabilities into the offering. But Sprint’s Google support won’t be limited to Sprint network customers.
