  Ordina - Wat is nieuw in JD Edwards?
  Oracle investeert in JD Edwards. Nu en in de toekomst. Er is een roadmap en voor de komende jaren zijn de releases gepland. Wat is nieuw in JD Edwards en wat kunnen we de komende tijd verwachten? Welke hot topics zijn meegenomen in de meest recente releases en hoe kunt u uw voordeel daarmee doen?
  Quistor: Future of ERP: from Mobile to Wearables and Internet of Things
  Getting the idea of future JDE development and technology and how new technology such as Internet of Things and Wearables can add business value in current JDE ERP implementations.
  Steltix: How JDE becomes your personal ERP
  Inspiring customer case including practical examples of succesful use of JDE in a production and logistical environment. Production scheduling, native JDE shopfloor scanning, product labelling, workorder processing & completion.
  Forza: Invoice automation made easy
  Meet Scanman, an ingenious approach to invoice automation. Scanman will enable you to streamline the overall process of capturing invoices, eliminating the need for manual data entry. Unlike other solutions offered for JD Edwards, Scanman is completely integrated with JD Edwards and makes optimal use of the comprehensive functionality within JD Edwards. Too often Invoice Automation projects involve complex and expensive Document Management solutions without pre-built integration options. With Scanman there is no need for synchronization of data to support processes in a separate tooling. The JD Edwards integration needed, comes out of the box.

Break Out Sessions II

  Ordina: Do's en don'ts van een Food solution implementatie bij
  Heemskerk is al jaren gebruiker van JD Edwards. Vorig jaar heeft een implementatie van JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.1 plaatsgevonden. Hierbij is de Food Solution van Ordina ingezet. Dat betekent zoveel mogelijk gebruik maken van standaard functionaliteit, op basis van een systeem waarin de best practices al zijn ingericht. In februari 2014 is Heemskerk live gegaan. In deze sessie wordt toegelicht welke keuzes zijn gemaakt, hoe het project is uitgevoerd en wat nodig is voor een klaterend succes. De presentatie zal worden verzorgd door Peter van Duijvenbode van Heemskerk en Erwin Drees van Ordina.
  Oracle: Extend your ERP/JDE with cloud solutions
  Join us in this session as we explore what it means to be a Modern Business, from the experiences customers expect to the talent to succeed. You'll hear how new technologies and new business practices are coming together. You'll learn how Modern Businesses leverage Modern Cloud solutions to increase innovation, reduce operating cost, manage talent, improve customer experience and provide real-time insight.
  Cadran: E-commerce en Warehouse Management-Integrating your online business with your logistics operations
  E-commerce verandert uw business in rap tempo! Dit heeft grote impact op uw logistieke operatie en de integratie met Oracle JD Edwards. In deze presentatie die wordt verzorgd door André van Rijn (DIRACT IT) en Ed Pieters (Cadran Consultancy) bespreken wij diverse klant cases (onder andere BAS distributie en Jumbo) en de geïmplementeerde oplossingen.
  Quistor: JD Edwards Archiving: Faster Performance, Faster
Upgrades, Better Data Integrity
  Many organizations implement archiving as a matter of practice to address tactical performance gain in system processing or performance. Necessity often drives our behavior when it comes to archiving and purging data; it tends to be reactive and is usually on the heels of user-perceptible performance degradation. The reality is that data, and specifically "big" data, needs to be managed. Having practices and tools in place to manage this data is among the top three imperatives of IT leaders in many recent reports. Topics of discussion will include:
• Planning for archive project
• Leveraging archival best practices
• Preserving and improving data integrity
• Long term data management strategy
Actual customer case studies highlighting specific needs and benefits will also be discussed during the presentation. Essentio Software is an Oracle Validated Integration solution provider for archival of JD Edwards data.

Break Out Sessions III

  ISProjects: United Bisquits ervaart de voordelen van digitale factuurverwerking in JD Edwards
  Paul Hogenbosch, Business Analyst van United Biscuits, geeft u inzicht in de voordelen van digitale factuurverwerking in de praktijk. United Biscuits werkt al enige tijd met de oplossing van ISProjects voor digitale factuurverwerking in JD Edwards met voucher logging. Paul Hogenbosch vertelt u tijdens deze sessie over aanleiding, het project en de resultaten. United Biscuits, bekend van o.a. de Verkade koekjes, is een internationale organisatie met vestigingen in onder andere Nederland, België en Frankrijk. Bezoek deze sessie om een heldere presentatie te krijgen van alle facetten van digitaal factuur verwerken!
  XSED: Democratizing the ESB
  "Democratizing" is introdicing a democratic system or democratic principle to make someting accessible to everyone. Open source software democratizes the ESB by making it accessible to a much broader group of organizations. By addressing the primary challenges organizations face - access to low-cost, powerful development tools that are stable, easy-to-use and fully supported - Talend is democratizing the ESB. The need to move vast amounts of data, near real-time information accuracy, and cloud services adoption are all drivers for the adoption of more - and more innovative - forms of integration. The explosion of corporate data in SMBs is placing extreme pressure on IT departments to produce greater oversight and just-in-time reporting, forcing the breaking down of information silos. By bridging these silos, application integration plays a key role in making the right data available to the right consumer at the right time. In this session we will show the possibilities of Talend ESB. We will show examples of integration with Oracle JD Edwards, using the new application integration services to connect several different systems.
  Quadira: Opmaak, (digitale) distributie en archivering van documenten in de praktijk
  Met standaard Oracle JD Edwards is het vaak lastig om op een eenvoudige en efficiënte wijze documenten samen te stellen, zowel voor lay-oout als voor de content. Bovendien is het onmogelijk om zonder maatwerk de documenten zoals verkoopfacturen, inkoopopdrachten en offertes, digitaal en naar wens van de ontvangers te distribueren en te archiveren. Daarvoor moet je geheel terugvallen op expertise van specialisten. Voor zowel klant als partner is het juist veel prettiger indien men de initiële projectfase voor de automaatiserng van de opmaak, distributie en archivering dit gezamenlijk kan oppakken, waarna de klant zelfstandig eenvoudige wijzigingen aan de documenten of het distributieproces kan doorvoeren. Als gevolg hiervan bespaart de klant onnodige dure tijd van specialisten en levert dit een betere klant-partnerrelatie op. Gedurende deze sessie zal Heering Ligthart van Bravilor Bonamat samen met Quadira vanuit de praktijk presenteren hoe zij dit hebben aangepakt. Daarbij wordt de combinatie van output management met Advances-Forms en de JD Edwards Connector voor JD Edwards Versie 9.1 nader toegelicht.
14.30 - 15.00 ARCTOOLS: Optimize your ERP solution with Structured Data Management
  Learn how proactively managing data can improve ERP performance, reduce costs and save time. In this presentation you will get an overview of the benefits of managing ERP data, tips on building the business case and an understanding of how to approach a data purge and archive project. With lots of client examples, you will also learn how ARCTOOLS can help you overcome the challenges of ERP data management by allowing you to quickly and easily purge and archive data with integrity.
  Q Software: Compliance: An unnecessary evil or critical to the Business
  Often regulatory compliance and keeping auditors happy is seen by both IT and the Business as something that 'just has to be done' and not as a task that can be beneficial to both. This presentation explores some of the ways in which compliance and 'good business practice' can deliver real benefits to an organisation, whilst highlighting some of the tangible paybacks that can be realised in return for the effort invested, such as: Reduced Audit Costs, Tighter Financial Controls, Fraud Alerting, Effective Audit Reporting, Business Automation
  JDE Mart: Finetuning your JDE Reporting Strategy
  Typically you have three types of data that you need for reporting. We will give you a refreshing look at your data and show you how Data Access Studio might be able to resolve your requirements. This will include a sneek preview of the upcoming DAS functionality.
14.00 - 15.00  Oracle Real Time Scheduler
  Today’s fast-paced business world requires a new level of  service. Customers both external and internal demand quality, immediate and dependable response, speedy resolution, and minimum cost.  Across sectors such as Oil & Gas, Retail, Logistics and Field Service, in order to compete and operate in this environment, companies must not only provide world-class service, they must operate in a real-time setting. Customer service representatives, dispatchers, and technicians must be in sync with one another at all times and provide timely information updates. Come to this presentation to learn how implementing Oracle Real-Time Scheduler is helping companies achieve their  service goals.
15.00 - 15.30 Refreshment break
15.30 - 16.15

Break Out Sessions IV

  Cadran: Europese implementatie en roll-out bij Interface
  Europese implementatie en roll-out bij Interface (in deze presentatie krijgt u inzicht in de aanpak en uitdagingen van een gefaseerde multisite implementatie van JD Edwards bij Interface. Hierbij komen ook Applicatie Integratie en harmonisatie van data en processen aan bod. Ook informeren wij u hoe de implementatie heeft bijgedragen aan de lange termijn doelstellingen m.b.t. Sustainability: Zero Carbon Footprint).
  Forza: CNC best practices
  JDE EnterpiseOne requires on-going monitoring and pro-active maintenance to run optimally. As JD Edwards does not provide a complete solution to fulfill the CNC System Adminitrator needs, companies devise their own processes and tools for this. This session covers CNC best practices, monitoring and tools and tips to assist JDE EnterpriseOne System Administrators.
  Steltix: Best Practises for JDE in a Manufacturing and Logistical environment
  How can you make JDE your personalized ERP and what's in it for you? JDE Café One, Watchlists, One View Reporting, BI Publisher, Archiving and Building Dashboards. JDE Café One, Watchlists, One View Reporting, BI Publisher, Archiving and Building Dashboards.
  Oracle: Improve the Return On Innovation
  There are many mitigating factors whether or not a product will be successful. Of course you must have innovative ideas but how do you manage the process from idea to product launch? How do you make sure that customer and market requirements are met? How do you know if a new concept meets margin and cost objectives and resources are available in your product development process to realize development of the new concept? Innovation Management from Oracle provides companies an end-to-end solution from the fuzzy front-end of innovation to analysis of your portfolio for new proposals and will improve Return On Innovation.
