Using Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications allow organizations to solve their most challenging business problems. These systems work by attaching sensors to collect information such as temperature, geopositioning, pressure, or vibration. Collecting information from machines enables organizations to integrate this information into their business processes to make more intelligent decisions, reduce costs, and create new revenue streams.
Welcome to the world of the Internet of Things, where your machines, along with your people and processes, are all connected enabling solutions that were not possible before.
Oracle JD Edwards has helped thousands of organizations simplify, standardize, and optimize their ERP business processes in the areas of finance, procurement, manufacturing, capital asset management, and supply chain. This automation results in better business decisions, cost savings, and increased revenue. Just as this automation has helped organizations improve their business results, the step of simplifying how M2M information is collected and acted upon in the context of an organization’s business process will enable organizations to further extend this value to their company assets, manufacturing operations, projects and services, and supply chain.
Improving the accuracy, frequency, and timeliness of your input data is the most important upgrade you can make to your enterprise applications. The value of the Internet of Things (IoT) is recognized in industrial automation, healthcare, energy management, environmental monitoring, and infrastructure management, to name just a few. IoT-enabled devices add value to any industry business process that relies on tedious, expensive, error-prone manual input to applications. An ERP system integrated with an IoT solution delivers real-time, always-on data into applications to increase the value of your software investment.
The JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Orchestrator Studio and the IoT Orchestrator provide the ‘last mile’ to bring data into your ERP system with ease. The Orchestrator Studio is an intuitive web-based application for developing orchestrations that provide the instructions for transferring device data into transaction-capable data in EnterpriseOne. The IoT Orchestration processes orchestrations as inputs are received by orchestrations in real-time. This real-time data transformation results in optimized operations, nimble responsiveness, clearer analytics, and better regulatory compliance.
The automated, continuous, and real-time input from automated devices is prefiltered and mapped to transactions by the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne IoT Orchestrator to support improved analytics and decision-making by the business. As a result companies derive better business value from their data, for example through:
Customers can also bolster the JD Edwards IoT Orchestrator with one or more components of the Oracle Cloud IoT solution, such as complex event processing, device identity management, security, long-term and high-volume data storage, and big data analysis. The JD Edwards IoT platform includes a Discovery Service which the Oracle IoT Cloud Service can access to view available orchestrations as well as the format and inputs of each orchestration. Oracle's JD Edwards applications, combined with a layered architecture, is uniquely positioned to leverage the capabilities of IoT technologies and to offer highly differentiated solutions.
