How to Gain the Buy-In of Company Executives to Accelerate Your JDE Analytics Roadmap

Tue. August 20| 3:15 PM – 4:15 PM | Governor’s Square 9
Session ID: JDE-102720
Presenter: Peter Young,

Most organizations running JD Edwards ERP also use a myriad of other applications and systems to run their businesses. But what happens when users across departments start to demand reporting out of siloed tools and across disparate applications? 

Granite Construction (NYSE: GVA) is a full-suite provider in the transportation, water infrastructure, and mineral exploration markets. In this presentation, Granite will review the challenges they faced undertaking an enterprise analytics and data management project covering JDE and other core systems; methods and technologies used in the process; and lessons learned, including: 

  • Revealing the best applications and examples of analytics in the industry: success stories that will excite your executives 
  • Quantifying the short and long term ROI of investing in analytics: why is it critical to do this work now? 
  • Understanding what executives need to know when you’re requesting funding or support for investment in analytics
