How it works

With this solution for JD Edwards Worldsoftware, all the archive jobs run at a document or transaction level and not at a table level. This is to ensure that document integrity is maintained, and that you never get part-purged documents within your system. And as for the archive process, a single job performs all the aspects without the need to run multiple steps.

This solution for JD Edwards World installs into your chosen JD Edwards World environment(s) as a SAVF. Off course it has built in database integrity checks in the software and as part of that, it provides full summarization on General Ledger and Inventory. And to make things easy for you, you can easily run the software during the online day and in case you need it: all purges are easily reversible.


JD Edwards integration

On the technical side of things – this software for JDE World is written in the CL AND RPG toolset, and is also IBM SAA compliant, making all the programs look and feel just like any other IBM or JD Edwards program.

On top of that the World solution makes sure that soft-coded validations are configured by simple processing options and to protect all your data boundaries Commitment Control/Transaction Processing is being used.

Thoroughly professional

We were confronted with, I guess, a typical IT quandary: Rapidly diminishing disk space and increasingly poor system performance coupled with a group decision that resulted in our inability to invest in either our Hardware platform or a Software upgrade. We approached the vendor with the problem and they responded readily with a Purging Services proposal.

This commenced with a business review with our Finance Department to understand our JDE environment and requirements. Having also taken account of our processing limitations they provided us with a compelling solution.

The whole project was completed quickly, within the timescales set out and in a thoroughly professional manner. We were delighted with the resulting disk space saving and the improved systems performance we achieved. We have no hesitation in recommending this vendor’s Purging Services.

We used to use the P00PURGE dreamwriter from JDE but the problem was that when we purged the F0311 we had big problems with integrity. IT were pressuring to get regular purges to save space, improve backup times and improve user performance, but Finance were upset that JDE standard purging methodology just wasn’t reliable or giving the results they expected.

The add-on listed here allows you to purge without losing the integrity and is much more flexible, and we did not consider it to be an expensive piece of software for the benefits we would gain. The fact that the software performs well and the support is very good were also factors in our decision making.

Very helpful and quick support team

JDE has been in use for a number of years by Argos Business Solutions and has had no effective archiving process since the application was installed. As a result of the potential risks we faced due to the high volume of data stored, the business commenced a project to review and recommend an archiving solution.

Following a software evaluation process the solution recommended here was chosen as our archiving solution. The implementation process was relatively simple and handled ‘in-house’. The actual creation of the purge routines was an easy process and followed just half a day of familiarity training with the vendor.

We have now purged our complete application and have been able to provide archiving as a “Business As Usual” process within the business.

The support team were very helpful and quick to respond to any questions we had during both the selection and implementation process. I am sure that had we required support whilst running this software over our production data their response would have again been both helpful and swift.
