Oracle ships nearly 60 mobile apps for JD Edwards

Oracle is responding to an ever more mobile customer base with the rollout of 57 mobile applications for its JD Edwards EnterpriseOne business software suite.

"JD Edwards is one of the fastest-growing parts of Oracle's business," said analyst Ray Wang, founder and chairman of Constellation Research. The new apps are "a response to what customers have asked them to do."

While Oracle has a number of ERP (enterprise resource planning) software products, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne is popular in industries such as agriculture, distribution and food production, where many workers are mobile in fields or on factory floors, rather than sitting at a desk.

The applications are available from Google Play and Apple's App Store. They cover a range of functional areas, such as field service, project management and asset tracking.

But Oracle's goal wasn't to deliver full-blown renditions of JD Edwards ERP on mobile phones and tablets, according to Wang.

"Each of those 57 apps are short burst tasks that address the spirit of mobile," Wang said. "Mobile is about getting stuff done in motion. Users can complete tasks in less than two  minutes."
