JDE101 And AutoDeploy Announce Partnership

Posted: 23rd February 2015 09:27

JDE101 is a non-profit organization focused on implementing JD Edwards EnterpriseOne training and certification programs at the college and university level. JD Edwards continues to enjoy double-digit growth and the highest customer satisfaction rates across Oracle’s application portfolio. With ongoing customer upgrade activity and net new sales, the demand for JDE professionals is high. As a large population of seasoned JD Edwards professionals reach retirement age, it is becoming clear that there is a small pool of available resources to fill the upcoming needs.

JDE101 and AutoDeploy recently joined forces to work together in the effort to build stronger ties at the academic level. AutoDeploy has pledged their support as a Diamond level donor and will partner with JDE101 in recruiting new universities to the program, securing new donors, and establishing additional partnerships throughout the JDE community.

Andy Klee, Acting Executive Director of JDE101, says, “JDE101 is a brand new non-profit organization dedicated to creating programs to train and certify college and university students in basic JD Edwards skills. Our first programs will be held Summer 2015 at various universities and colleges in the US and Canada. AutoDeploy’s partnership represents a significant step towards the success of JDE101. AutoDeploy was quick to recognize the significant need for new JDE resources to enter the ecosystem, and their contribution of both funds and in-kind services is deeply appreciated by JDE101.”

Mark Dalton, co-founder of AutoDeploy, says, “JDE101 recognized a need to train and certify university students on JD Edwards, and put a plan of action into place to address the need. Likewise, AutoDeploy is indebted to the generation that came before us and is committed to fostering the growth of our community. Our relationship with JDE101 is more than a partnership, it is a dedication to the future of a new generation of JD Edwards customers and users.”

JDE101 was developed in order to address that need by working to create a program at the college and university level to draw in new talent. By providing a base foundation of JDE skills, college students are equipped with the knowledge needed to qualify for entry-level positions such as business analysts or application consultants. This foundation is established through an intense, hands-on course that includes a certification test.

JDE101 is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating a training and certification program in Oracle’s JD Edwards (JDE) EnterpriseOne ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system for college and university students. JDE101 is a collective effort by all members of the JDE community - clients, business partners, and Oracle.

AutoDeploy automates expensive and resource-dependent tasks; providing enterprise-wide visibility and metrics on the status of evolving business processes.
