Ideathon – NEW FEATURE FOR 2016!

Delegates were invited to win the chance to see enhancements that would benefit a business, implemented in the next JD Edwards release in the exclusive Ideathon competition held at JDE16!! JD Edwards users with ideas on how to use JD Edwards applications, technology, and tools to solve a strategic business opportunity were encouraged to submit an abstract, initial design, or working solutions detailing the idea.

Submissions were reviewed by the JDE16 conference committee, assessing them based on: their business problem definition, creativity in the solution and potential for use by other customers. The  ideas were then presented to the JD Edwards Executive Team – Lyle Ekdahl, Gary Grieshaber & Bob Monahan - who judged the top solutions & selected a winner! The winning solution will then be given consideration to be included in a future JD Edwards release.
