Attend our session:

How to build a JD Edwards process model and deploy it globally. 

A challenge to any business’ ERP project is to define and build a process model that serves the business, is accepted by the users and minimizes change. Imagine building one that incorporates multiple businesses from different systems, countries and cultures from the outset.  Now sprinkle in acquisitions along the way that changes planned timelines and assumptions.

Being flexible and adaptable to a changing business landscape is a must, but equally important is how to manage the change, govern the model and motivate the teams over the long haul.

Explore one customer’s approach to accomplishing a collaborative, multi-cultural model build and deployment.  Understand the challenges and benefits experienced and lessons learned along the way.


  • Understand the approach to the global process model build, deployment and support
  • Understand how to govern the single model, the master data and eliminate modifications
  • Hear our lessons learned during the global initiative
