JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Migration to AWS

Syntax will cooperatively plan, design, execute, and optimize
your JD Edwards environment on AWS.

Enterprises are being mandated to focus their technology on investments that will broaden their own products, services, and value proposition. Running JD Edwards workloads in on-premises data centers incurs years of technical debt, requiring constant reinvestment. Enterprises that are tasked with migrating to the cloud to mitigate their legacy environments are challenged with the effort, time, disruption, and expertise required for this transformation. Syntax's cloud migration and managed services offer takes charge of your JD Edwards EnterpriseOne (JDE E1) migration to streamline your transition and future environment.

Syntax Enterprise Cloud®, powered by AWS, is a go-to solution for JDE E1 cloud migrations executed with precision by a team of AWS experts and JD Edwards System Architects. Syntax couples its extensive JD Edwards on AWS experience and unique tool set with managed services that are automated, secure, scalable, and provide full visibility. Syntax's model provides a completely dedicated tenant structure, so there is no lock-in and the customer can take control of their own account.

Syntax will architect and transform JDE E1 environments to maximize uptime and performance, while leveraging the full range of AWS capabilities to scale and evolve without limitation. Syntax’s team of JD Edwards and AWS experts have a proven migration methodology that follows an iterative path to a new operating model in the cloud.

  • How it works
  • Syntax begins the journey to AWS with an Architecture Design Session (ADS) where Syntax reviews IT objectives, workloads, pain points, and the corporate objectives. Syntax then analyzes key enterprise resource planning (ERP) ecosystem components that are unique to the client, such as third-party solutions, reporting, business intelligence, document management, and form management. Beyond the ERP components, Syntax will take a deep dive into all current platforms, databases, middle-ware, system utilization, and usage characteristics to map the most optimal solution on AWS.

    The ADS will be followed by a planning and strategy session where Syntax provides recommendations for infrastructure, applications, interfaces, and architectural refactoring. Design of the AWS environment will be validated against current infrastructure to make certain every component has been accurately mapped. Once validated, migration planning and strategy recommendations will be provided that address potential issues, risk remediation and mitigation, licensing options, service management, and ongoing optimization/right-sizing opportunities.

    Core to Syntax's capabilities are its differentiated automation and development technologies that free the customer's resources for higher-valued tasks and provide visibility that was previously not possible. EnterpriseCare® has been designed and developed to provide deep visibility and a rich set of JDE E1-specific functions; FraudID proactively detects and alerts suspicious transaction activity; and EnCrypto selectively encrypts JDE E1 data, leveraging military-grade encryption.

    Syntax will deliver a complete end-to-end migration plan. Inclusive to the plan are cloud infrastructure and middle-ware provisioning, full migration strategy, systems and technology testing/recertification, user acceptance testing, reporting, resource optimization, go-live assessments, systems and technology validation, user validation, and risk mitigation recommendations.
