One of the most significant changes to JD Edwards EnterpriseOne is the enhancements found in the JD Edwards Orchestrator studio. The tool, previously known as IoT Orchestrator, is about more than simply connecting “things” and is now the communications hub for your connected systems. Let’s take a closer look at how it can improve the efficiency of your JD Edwards EnterpriseOne solution.
How Does it Work?
The foundation for Orchestrator is the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Application Interface Services (AIS) Server. While the AIS Server runs JD Edwards applications in the background, the Orchestrator processes orchestrations saved to the AIS Server to transform external data into actionable business processes in Enterprise One. Orchestrations can even be scheduled to run automatically, and the results can be sent straight to your mobile device so that you can get them on the go.
Orchestrator studio is simple to use and allows the business analyst (as opposed to a developer) to create, test, and deploy orchestrations using a visual interface that moves the complex code behind the scenes, saving developers time and energy that can be used on other tasks
What are the Benefits?
One of the most significant benefits to using Orchestrator from a bottom-line perspective is that there is no longer a separate license fee—it’s now part of your foundation license.
Some other benefits include:
- Connecting IoT data to your business data. You can now collect, filter, analyze and act on real-time data as IoT devices are transmitting it. This eliminates costly and error-prone manual processes, by reacting to (or avoiding) business disruptions in real time, and through historical data analysis for ongoing improvement.
- Easily integrates to other solutions. Orchestrator functionality supports various integrations including cloud services, third-party applications, custom programs, and many more.
- Transforming how you use your JD Edwards System. The automation within the Orchestrator removes some of the tedious tasks from your EnterpriseOne users giving them time to focus on more important projects.
Why Use the Orchestrator?
Well, if the fact that it’s free isn’t enough of a reason, then you should find the simplicity and power in all the automation it brings to your connected enterprise. Users can now get better data from their devices. And we all know that better data means better business insights and actions. Orchestrator is not just a new feature—it will completely change how you use your entire JD Edwards system adding more value to your investment.
