At the applications coalface, Natural Gas Corp’s transition from JDE OneWorld Xe to PeopleSoft Enterprise One is progressing well.
“We’ve upgraded part of the database and are just seeing if there are any issues with it,” John Davies says.
The rest of the database upgrade will be completed in the next week or so, “then we’ll be able to do the upgrade proper”.
The upgrade is taking a little longer than first anticipated, “but we’re doing everything in slow time, by the book and it’s as you’d expect.”
Last year PeopleSoft announced that JDE OneWorld and JDE 5 customers would move to PeopleSoft EnterpriseOne and JDE World customers would migrate to PeopleSoft World.
Existing PeopleSoft customers also got a new brand, with PeopleSoft 8 customers now running PeopleSoft Enterprise.
“It’s a brand thing,” Davies says. “The labels on top of the applications will change — the PeopleSoft skins will come out.”
