JD Edwards custom programs and reports

12 jul '16 - : Andrei Agavriloaiei & Gabriel Dragoi - share: LinkedIN Mail

The success of JD Edwards applications is largely based on the fact that they are so flexible and versatile. These qualities are ensured by the fact that users can customize components of the applications to suit their needs. This results in custom programs and reports both in World and EnterpriseOne.

However, this comes with a licensing cost. End-users typically think they don’t need to license the usage of these custom objects as they consider them their own intellectual property. In reality, Oracle will map customized objects to modules from its price list, based on the tables they interact with or the business functions they rely on.

We recommend end-users to align their expectations with the reality explained above and to evaluate their licensing needs from this perspective.

In our next article, we will talk about licensing "JD Edwards Indirect Usage". More information can also be found in our latest white paper “JD Edwards – License Compliance Risks”. Our new white paper format is really mobile friendly, so you can easily read it on your tablet or mobile phone.

Oracle Database and hardware infrastructure

The required number of licenses for Oracle’s Database programs are (almost) at all times related to the hardware infrastructure on which the software is installed. Incorrect interpretation or understanding of whether the software is deemed to be installed and how the installed software should be licensed in a certain specific hardware infrastructure is by far the number 1 license compliance issue.
