PROMOTING OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE THROUGH DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION

Maynooth University wanted to use technology to improve the experience of staff, students and stakeholders and benefit from efficiencies and reduced costs associated with Cloud-based infrastructure.

They decided to migrate their existing Oracle JD Edwards ERP system from an on premise solution to a private Cloud. Especially in the finance department, the team wanted to automate as many processes as possible.

Maynooth required JD Edwards experts and a simple, guaranteed process for moving to the Oracle Cloud.

Customer Challenge

Promoting operational excellence through Digital Transformation is one of the foundation stones of the University’s 2018-2022 strategic plan.

Their goal is to use technology to improve the experience of staff, students and stakeholders through a digital first strategy which will drive operational excellence through process optimization and continuous improvement. The challenge for the IT team is to ensure the right balance between operational IT (security, stability and accuracy) and agile IT (innovation and speed in developing new solutions).

JD EDWARDS – THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS, STABILITY & INNOVATION

The IT team at Maynooth chose to meet this challenge by hosting Oracle’s JD Edwards in the Cloud, staying up-to-date on the latest releases and investing in training and development for ERP end-users.

The team at Maynooth uses JD Edwards to run key finance processes. The Finance team’s goal is to automate as many tasks as possible so that they can act as real partners to their internal clients. The team constantly seeks to improve efficiency and build a strong culture of data-driven decision-making.

Being on the latest version of JD Edwards has empowered the team to automate some tasks within key areas such as accounts payable, receivable and purchase order processing.

Continuing that trend, Maynooth is currently implementing JD Edwards Orchestrator with a view to automating user setup and data extraction for Financial reporting.

End user productivity and user experience is a priority for Maynooth and being on the latest JD Edwards version in the cloud enables MU to implement the new user interface UXOne and the Citizen Developer Toolkit which allows end-users to personalise interfaces without the need to hard-code the changes.

Hosting JD Edwards on the Oracle Cloud means we know our data is secure and that the ERP performance will be optimal.

Outcomes

Maynooth now host their instance of JD Edwards in the Oracle Cloud. The idea for a hosted solution was a simple one; outsourcing the Infrastructure management would free up time for the IT team to focus on their mission of optimising key processes. It also meant the cost of hardware maintenance was eliminated.
