Where is JD Edwards?

What/Who is JD Edwards? I read its one of those ERP size software systems that promise to run your whole business. I searched Google but didn't find any JD Edwards site if its supposed to be one mamoth size software, it should have a website in its glory I thought. I was wrong. There's all the hype at Oracle, Peoplesoft and brinkster from "architecture astronauts" but no real stuff about WTF is JDE?

> didn't find any JD Edwards site

It was acquired by PeopleSoft, and so you'll see Peoplesoft when you visit http://www.jdedwards.com/

Software like these are reason why IT consultations brought in in the form of tiny swat teams will always get more done in a year than ERP drones will in 10.

Yeah, thanks, hadn't seen him lately so I thought he might have been absconding.

I'm guessing he owes you money.

You said it. How did you read my mind. I swear upon God he does and I was bitching all about it to myself last night when I didn't get a wink. That creep owes me my share of laundering money from when we robbed the bank at Brooklyn.

"Edward McVaney, Jack Thompson, and Dan Gregory founded J.D. Edwards & Company (a play on their first names) in 1977."

It's amazing what you can do with a Bloomberg terminal.

Ah! so there are three of them. No wonder that misnomer has the whole press and everyone misled. I am betting the police will never know...they're still searching for him.

[Grin] Hey, thanks for that rare info, BTW. And thanks to all you guys for that link to peoplesoft and for divulging the absorption.
