Interview with Lyle Ekdahl
Here’s an interesting interview with Lyle Ekdahl, group vice president and general manager for Oracle’s JD Edwards.
Profit: What’s special about the latest JD Edwards release?
Ekdahl: The current release has more than 20 patents pending on the work that we’ve done. We provided a whole new user interaction paradigm for our customers by leveraging Oracle technologies with rich user experiences, and applying them to our JD Edwards products. This gave users a very robust, engaging environment. We also added features to improve productivity, such as carousel-based navigation and type-ahead search. Then, we offered users the ability to personalize the look and feel for their own applications.
