JD Edwards announced on November 16th the availability of Tools release 9.2.1, containing significant improvements to JD Edwards Enterprise One 9.2. Part of this release features UX One, a solution providing an innovative role-based user experience that enables users to perform their jobs more efficiently using an Alert-Analyze-Act design paradigm.
User Experience with JD Edwards UX One has been optimized to include compatibility with devices, with intention to change user behavior in what they do every day on JD Edwards. Currently there are 32 roles ready to be used. The underlying thought was to improve and increase enablement for JD Edwards users so that they can do more functions themselves without the need to call IT.
Another major advantage of UX One is how it empowers users to create their own pages and become citizen developers. This means the functionality is no longer limited to traditional developers or those with deep technical experience. Welcome to the age of the citizen developer, where the IT skills gap is closing to drive higher efficiency and productivity.
In UX One, users receive desktop alerts for preset conditions, such as an overdue invoice or equipment maintenance. Based on this alert, the user can analyze the situation from visualized data, quickly determine which action to take, and implement the required action – all from their desktop or mobile device.
UX One Features Include:
- Role-based landing pages across JD Edwards products.
- Applications with visual UI controls such as maps, Gantt charts, and hierarchies.
- Personalization of pages, forms, layouts and more that end-users can do themselves.
- Tools for citizen developers to easily create EnterpriseOne Pages, and more.
- Delivered samples of code and utilities so that developers can create new components and visual applications.
