Upgrading JD Edwards Proves Simple for Sinclair International

Data integrity and easy transition at the heart of Sinclair’s upgrade using’s Upgrader


DENVER, April 2, 2013 -- (Insight), the developers of innovative solutions that enable direct access to ERP data for interactive, real-time reporting, budgeting and reconciliation within Oracle E-Business Suite and JD Edwards, worked with Sinclair International – one of the world’s largest providers of automated labeling systems – to help the company shorten and simplify its migration from JD Edwards EnterpriseONE Xe to v9.0 using Insight Upgrader.
Sinclair is a long-term user of JD Edwards ERP systems for its vast enterprise operations. When the company looked at upgrading, it identified several critical success factors including:

  • Moving  amounts of data from the older system to the new one and ensuring there was no data discrepancy
  • Minimizing disruption to day-to-day operations
  • Identifying a reporting and accounting tool that could easily switch between  versions of JD Edwards

Sinclair determined Insight Upgrader was the right software to enable this migration because it could be used before, during and post upgrade, and it was compatible with both JD Edwards versions: EnterpriseOne Xe and v9.0.
“With taking care of the data mapping in v9.0 it was easy to switch to the new version,” said Adam Pryke, IS manager for Sinclair International. “This meant we could quickly run pre and post data conversion integrity reports.”
Another upgrade concern was downtime because users wouldn’t be able to access the ERP system until after all data integrity checks were completed. However, due to Insight Upgrader’s out-of-the-box compatibility, data was automatically mapped, allowing for faster data transition. helped us reduce system downtime during migration to only four hours in total,” added Pryke.
Sinclair’s upgrade to JD Edwards v9.0 was successful because it relied on proven tools. Some ERP upgrades can often go over budget, become delayed and never meet  business requirements. Insight Upgrader was developed specifically to address these challenges by ensuring complete data integrity and minimized business downtime.   In addition, the tool was extremely valuable in enabling the company to meet cutover deadlines when going live.
Insight Upgrader installs in less than one hour and dramatically improves the JD Edwards upgrade experience ensuring:

  • Complete data integrity through real-time, streamlined data migration and testing (no custom development required)
  • High quality, clean data at all times throughout the upgrade
  • Real-time data validation
  • Increased user productivity through a rapid installation and intuitive end-user experience
