JD Edwards implementation partners

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

Many JD Edwards end-users turn to 3rd party companies for implementing their JD application. Implementation partners are typically hired to implement the system and not to manage the licenses. 

Although these companies generally create reliable and well-documented systems, this creates a risk both in terms of licensing needs and the ability to properly maintain the JDE installation.

The Oracle License Review or License Audit process can become quite costly for organizations who have to turn to the implementation partner in order to fulfill the audit requests. Especially because Oracle’s standard audit clause states that you will pay all your own costs related to the execution of an audit. Because of this, the end-users should ensure that the implementation partner documents the complete implementation of the software, including what modifications have been made and why they have been made. This will help the end-user to assess the licensing implications. After all, ultimately, the license compliance position is the end-user’s responsibility.

Next week in our final article in the series, we will talk about licensing JD Edward 3rd Party Security Tools. More information can also be found in our latest white paper “JD Edwards – License Compliance Risks”.

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.
