IoT for JD Edwards
With JD Edwards, benefiting from the capabilities of M2M (Machine-to-Machine) networks is much easier, since it has native functionality for integrating and managing all the data from the company’s devices in your ERP. It is also capable of incorporating this information to business logic, automatically generating actions that will make your company much more dynamic.
The Internet of Things applied to companies consists of interconnecting devices and sensors to corporate management software, bridging the gap between the physical and digital world and allowing your system to make real-time decisions based on accurate and specific information.
The reduction in size and cost of processors, their lower consumption, standardisation of protocols and universalization of communication networks bring M2M networks within reach of many companies which could not previously consider implementing them.
Oracle JD Edwards EnterpriseOne has innovated once again by integrating M2M network information management in its solution through a platform that integrates and processes all the information gathered by your company’s devices. This new platform allows you to improve the efficiency of your business by reducing its costs and enhancing its response capacity to customers, partners and authorities.
IoT Orchestrator is based on open standards to bridge the gap between the digital and physical world. The flexible architecture of JD Edwards based on two layers, one technological and another functional, allows you to quickly adopt new technologies such as mobility or M2M solutions without affecting the business applications deployed at the company.
IoT Orchestrator offers an access platform for processing and receiving information from any type of device, securely integrating these data in order to form part of its database and serve as a catalyst for new business decisions.
JD Edwards’s layered architecture allows users to quickly adopt disruptive technologies such as IoT, which help to transform your business without negatively impacting the system in its entirety.
Any organization can benefit from this technology, which has a centralized repository of all the data generated by its machines. The possibilities are endless: from tracking the location of company vehicles to operational machine data.
The main benefits include suppressing the manual collection of machine data, eliminating the errors and processing costs, in addition to consistently integrating all this information in your management system. This will give you greater insight not only into your business, but also into your company’s entire value chain.
Once all the information has been collected, we can implement business rules that will automatically perform actions and corrections in real time.
Sectors of application
All operations involving the maintenance and management of fixed assets will significantly improve with this platform, since it offers us greater control and visibility of all the machinery monitored with much more comprehensive cost control. In industries with special risks, such as for example chemicals, it allows us to monitor toxic gases in-plant, thereby improving employee security.
It controls the plant activity levels with greater precision, enabling more realistic planning. The volume of data gathered allows us to create models to generate simulations of possible scenarios.
M2M networks are the basic pillar that supports the new Industry 4.0 revolution. Those companies which are capable of quickly incorporating this new technology to its production model will have a significant advantage over their competitors.
Some applications of M2M networks, such as fleet control, have been a reality for many years, but this is not their only application. In large storage areas such as ports or large industrial buildings, it allows us to comprehensively monitor the location of its products.
Applied to containers and receptacles, it allows us to control shipment quality in accordance with key variables, such as vibrations, blows or breaks in the cold chain, etc., allowing us to offer our customers the highest guarantees.
The internationalization of businesses and, in general, the opening of markets has increased the complexity of distributing goods. Thanks to M2M networks, companies can manage all this complexity in a much more automated manner in order to focus on value creation for their customers.
It allows us to exhaustively control soil moisture levels and even grapevine stock thickness, in addition to collecting meteorological data that will provide greater details of the conditions and evolution of the different land plots, making it possible to automate the actions to be performed.
In intensive greenhouse crops it enables comprehensive control of climate and CO2 levels in order to optimize production.
With IoT we improve companies’ value chain from primary production to the delivery of the products to consumers.
Control of store traffic levels and cross-referencing with variables such as temperature, fragrances, type of music played, time of day and date to determine the ambiance conditions that will maximize sales for each commercial establishment and time of year.
Intelligent sales applications make it possible to generate shopping tips for customers based on their preferences, consumer habits or expiry dates.
A bridge collects and transforms all the information from devices and converts it into an independent format of the platform in order to subsequently send it over the Internet. The bridge applies different processing levels to the information in order to filter data and other functions.
The information is received by IoT orchestrator, which contextualizes it, eliminating noise and mapping the events and conditions in order to integrate them in JD Edwards’s data model. The process is completed with the use of this information by JD Edwards’s applications based on your company’s business logic.
In short, JD Edwards’s IoT adds a logical layer which allows us to handle large amounts of technical details with greater ease in order to give companies more freedom when developing their business model.
