History of JD Edwards Development
JD Edwards was founded in 1977 by Jack Thompson, Dan Gregory and Ed McVaney.
They developed JD Edwards World, which was initially developed on the IBM System/34, later on the IBM systems 36 and 38, to get ported to IBM AS/400 finally.
It is still one of the most widely used ERP systems on the AS/400 today.
In 1996, JD Edwards OneWorld was developed to provide hardware and software independent client-server systems.
Over time, OneWorld has been renamed EnterpriseOne. This name is still in use today.
September 2000 saw the release of EnterpriseOne Xe. This mature release is still considered a milestone in the development of EnterpriseOne.
Release EnterpriseOne 8 is published in June 2002.
JD Edwards was acquired by Peoplesoft in 2003.
Release EnterpriseOne 8.9 is published in September 2003.
The following year Peoplesoft was acquired by Oracle®.
