5 questions to ask when searching for a JD Edwards archiving solution

So, you've been asked to evaluate third party archiving solutions?

Great news! Your organization has decided to archive JD Edwards data.

The results will speak for themselves when your business has a faster system that responds more quickly to user requests.  But, how do you find the right JDE archiving solution?

If you've been tasked with finding the answer to your company's archiving needs then use our 5 questions to help your evaluation process.

Look for positive answers to 5 key questions

1. Is the archiving solution easy to use?

  • Is it a separate tool or built in?
  • Will it support the entire archive project (end-to-end) or only the mechanical task of the archive?
  • How much disruption should you expect?

2. Does the interface require a large amount of training?

  • Ask to see a demo including the interface. Is it intuitive?
  • Is the navigation straightforward?
  • Does it involve leaving JD Edwards to access reports?

3. Is the functionality failsafe?

  • Does it have easy reversal options?
  • Will the archived data be restored to its original place?

4. Will the archiving solution work at a JD Edwards 'Document' level?

5. Is it fully auditable?

  • Can it identify business process and data integrity issues in the JD Edwards environment?
  • Does the interface allow users to see detailed and summarized audit data views?


In summary, a 3rd party archiving product should have the required functional and technical knowledge already built in. The archiving solution should provide a framework to support the processes required in a JDE archiving project:

  • Building a process which can be ‘productionized’
  • Configurable data integrity checking
  • Full Audit
  • Reversible
  • Access to archived data
  • Data boundary protection (commitment control / transaction processing)
  • Useability!
