SOFTWORLD SPECIAL – JD Edwards concentrates on web solutions because net adds value

B2B software provider JD Edwards is focusing on producing ‘fully web-developed software’ after endorsing the net as a medium for ‘adding value’.

Speaking at Softworld 2001, the company said it planned to make all its software available over the web and took the opportunity to demonstrate OneWorld, its set of web-enabled collaborative commerce applications.

OneWord uses XML-based technology to integrate disparate applications including news feeds and email systems, as well as to electronically connect with business partners regardless of the software applications or platforms involved.

Currently, the company offers three configurable portals including a supplier portal, a customer relationship management portal and a supply chain collaborators portal. A click and drop windows mechanism allows the screen to be adapted to any format.
