DWS deliver solutions that enable your organisation to maximise the benefits of your JD Edwards EnterpriseOne system. Using our proprietary DWS STAR methodology, we provide software development expertise and support to companies who want to customise and extend JD Edwards EnterpriseOne. We will take on any JD Edwards EnterpriseOne related projects and give you a partnership that guarantees the continuity and accountability that underpin successful projects.
On a greenfield implementation of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, DWS can customise the system to meet the needs of your business and users. We can build your system from scratch, working with your IT team and end users to ensure functionality and ease of use. We will work with you – questioning your business processes to ensure that we fully understand what you need to achieve. We will concentrate on the particular build that best matches your business needs, and integrates with your existing IT systems. We will ensure the minimum amount of disruption to your business by carefully planning and discussing our approach.
The needs of a business change – acquisitions, mergers, new product lines and management changes can all change your focus.
DWS can work with you to select and integrate additional elements to your JD Edwards solution, so that the solution continues to meet the needs of the business. The pace of technological change means that businesses throughout the world need to constantly monitor the revision level of their JD Edwards systems to ensure that they are accessing the highest levels of functionality. Regardless of the version of software or the level of modification of your system, DWS can design a solution to deliver any additional customisation required.
Sometimes it is not enough to customise the standard system. A completely new and discrete piece of functionality is required to meet a new business requirement, but without having to resort to installing an entirely new system. DWS have designed and developed entirely new JD Edwards modules to meet such needs. We will ensure that we understand your needs fully, and with careful consideration, discussion and planning, we will build a new piece of functionality that fully integrates into your existing system with minimum disruption and maximum effect.
Your system has probably been modified and changed by many different developers, contractors and companies over the years. It’s likely that the coding and documentation standards used will vary. In some cases there may be little or no documentation. This type of system can be very difficult to maintain and support. DWS provide a service to re-write code and documentation to DWS standards. The cleaned code can yield performance and reliability benefits and the documentation can simplify maintenance and support.
As businesses grow and expand the number of employees, departments, divisions, partner companies, suppliers and customers increase also. Business environments are dynamic and as a consequence systems must be reviewed and adapted to reflect changing requirements. This results in an ongoing requirement to integrate your JD Edwards EnterpriseOne system to more and more internal legacy systems and external third party systems. DWS have created a unique approach to the design, development and monitoring of interfaces which help you to maximise the value of your investment. We have leveraged and implemented the latest integration technologies available in the higher releases, such as Web Services.
We have the technical expertise and imagination to solve difficult issues with your system. We have been called in by customers to help analyse performance issues in applications and reports. We can demonstrate where we have provided significant increases in performance. If it is technically possible we can do it.
Our proven development methodology provides the strong basis to support the in-house quality process at DWS. A combination of our STAR (Software Tracking And Resourcing) System and software development life cycle processes enables our project managers and development teams to strictly adhere to this methodology in order to provide a solution which meets customers’ business requirements within estimated time-scales.
STAR is a proprietary tool which allows us to manage our systems and projects in minute details and from our head office, allowing off-site development.
