DWS Improves Testing for Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Customers

Share Article

A leading JD Edwards specialist launches new innovative products aimed at reducing the testing burden required for software upgrades. Dimension Focus™ and Dimension SwifTest™ will debut at this year’s Oracle OpenWorld event in San Francisco.

DWS is pleased to announce that it will be launching two new innovative software products at Oracle OpenWorld 2015. These products can help change the way users of Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne application test their implementations.

DWS has used its innovative spirit to solve the testing challenge with the release of two new software products, Dimension Focus™ and Dimension SwifTest™.

Dimension Focus™ uses some very clever techniques to identify, with accuracy, which objects or programs in their EnterpriseOne system will be affected by the changes made by Oracle in the new release. This helps DWS customers to restrict their testing to only those areas that need testing. A testing “heat map” visually indicates how much each object is affected. Customers who already have a testing solution for their JD Edwards system will also find this an invaluable tool to complement their existing solution and help reduce their future testing effort and costs.

Dimension SwifTest™ is a sophisticated scriptless software test automation tool that has been designed to make it simple for end users to create, run and manage their own test scenarios without the need for specialist test engineers or any programming knowledge.

“These new software products from DWS can set new standards for software test automation in terms of accuracy and simplicity whilst enabling reduced testing efforts and costs,” said Barry Burke, Managing Director of DWS. He continued, “These products can remove the biggest hurdle that prevents customers from adopting a code current policy.”

John Schiff, vice president of Oracle’s JD Edwards added, “We are thrilled that DWS is helping our customers benefit from keeping their Oracle’s JD Edwards software up to date."

Visitors to Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco can see these new products first hand by visiting DWS at kiosk WJD-008 in the JD Edwards Showcase situated in the Moscone West exhibition hall.

As a Gold level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) with OPN Specialization in JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, DWS has a long history of innovation and its latest products continue on this path by helping clients save time and money through a more simplified upgrade process.

Its Dimension Analyze™ service has for some years enabled customers to reduce the amount of custom code (bespoke software tailoring) used in their implementations of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne. This service has helped customers save both time and money in developer efforts.

Its Dimension Professional™ service has helped reduce the upgrade resources required by identifying the Best Upgrade Approach to minimize the developer time required to uplift any remaining custom code to work with the latest release of the Oracle application and to maximize quality. This tool enables DWS to implement upgrades for a fixed price and within a fixed timescale with absolute confidence. Using this tool, DWS has helped reduce defects associated with upgrades.

In 2014, DWS launched a code current service to help keep JD Edwards EnterpriseOne customers on the latest software release. Feedback from customers and from independent research indicated that the number one reason customers were holding back from adopting a policy to remain code current was the upheaval and resource required to retest their implementation, which could easily involve more than 60,000 individual programs. With the launch of Dimension Focus™ and Dimension SwifTest™ DWS reduces the testing barrier to make a code current policy a practical proposition for users of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne.
