CD Group, Inc., a leading consulting firm specializing in Oracle’s JD Edwards, today announced that it has formed a strategic alliance with AutoDeploy in order to provide automated package builds and deployments to its support services customers. The use of AutoDeploy’s software, Envoy, will enable CD Group to meet a market need for faster package builds, while reducing monthly support services fees its customers incur.

“Enterprise IT managers are always looking for better, lower cost solutions to increase their return on investment from major ERP systems like JD Edwards,” said Don Landrum, CD Group Vice President. “CD Group’s partnership with AutoDeploy enables us to reduce our customer costs of maintaining their systems, while also improving the delivery speed of package builds and deployment.”

AutoDeploy’s Envoy automates Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne package build and deploy process. With Envoy, business rules can be configured to enable scheduled, automated package build and deployment. Off-hours build requirements are no longer business critical scenarios dependent on limited time and resources. Instead, builds are done using a simple process with little hassle or time constraints. Customers can automate their package build and deploy requirements with zero, or one click.

“We are excited about partnering with CD Group to transform the value delivery model for its JD Edwards support services customers through the use of Envoy,” said Mark Dalton, CEO and co-founder of AutoDeploy. “In addition to reducing their support costs, Envoy’s proprietary code quality module ensures that the correct results from package build and deploys are delivered quickly and accurately. We believe our partnership with CD Group can drive new business outcomes for the JD Edwards market by embracing agile, automated and accurate software.”

Landrum said he is seeing a growing market need for automation in JD Edwards support services. “We have seen a steady increase in customers wanting to streamline costs and improve performance of their JD Edwards systems, and automation of regular tasks is a good way to address those needs,” he said. “We first began offering automated support services 18 months ago with the introduction of i-ON, CD Group’s proactive monitoring service. Adding AutoDeploy is a natural extension of our commitment to customers to improve their ROI.”
