CHARLOTTE, NC--(Marketwired - Nov 10, 2015) - Velocity Technology Solutions will be hosting an Oracle JD Edwards Upgrade Workshop in its Charlotte headquarters office on November 17 and 18, 2015. This is a no-cost workshop offered to JD Edwards users who are considering or planning to upgrade their JD Edwards World or EnterpriseOne ERP software. The workshop will highlight the opportunities an upgrade to JD Edwards version 9.2 offers to diverse businesses.

Registration for the workshop ends on November 16, 2015.

Velocity Technology Solutions was one of a select group of Oracle PartnerNetwork companies that was invited to participate and sponsor a pilot workshop in August 2015 hosted by Oracle JD Edwards. The event focused on managing an upgrade to version 9.2 from recent and dated versions of World and EnterpriseOne. It also addressed key business challenges such as how to prepare for the changing mix of employees as digital natives enter the workforce, and also how to manage upgrades with limited IT resources and knowledge, aging infrastructure or high volumes of customizations and integrations.

"JD Edwards version 9.2 has a number of new features such as Internet of Things and Mobility that organizations should be excited about, but the big value is how all the features and modules enable rapid innovation," said Judithe Kennedy, Vice President of the JD Edwards line of business for Velocity Technology Solutions. "Companies that choose the new 9.2 Simplified Upgrade path will be able to realize the benefits of incremental innovation and minimize business disruption for all future ERP upgrades."

Workshop materials have been derived from the collective experiences of customers and partners across the globe, and follow a company's entire upgrade process, from business planning and project evaluation to hardware, custom code, data, testing, training and go-live activities.

Topics will cover current technology and business issues including cloud, hosting, integration, automated tools, performance and scalability. All topics center around completing a project in 100 business days or less. This workshop lets every participant analyze their own current JD Edwards situation using online tools and other resources.
