Common Challenges

Built-In JDE Financials Reports May Not Be Able to Meet Unique Reporting Requirements: While JDE provides standard financial reports, organizations often have unique reporting requirements. Customizing or creating new reports can be complex and may require technical expertise.​ These financial reports do not provide levels of detail within different dimensions across the business, and performance and speed may be impacted when dealing with large volumes of data or complex calculations.​

Lack of Regulatory Compliance & Reconciliation: JDE does not offer workflow in the form of approving/certifying the financial data for regulatory compliance and audit.​ JDE may require manual efforts for reconciliation purposes, such as bank reconciliations or intercompany reconciliations. This manual process can be time-consuming and prone to errors, specifically dealing with large volumes of transactions or complexed reconciliation scenarios.​ Ensuring proper audit trails and controls within JDE can be challenging. Tracking changes to financial data may require additional configurations. ​

Limited Financial Planning and Analysis​: JDE primarily focuses on operational processes and may have limited capabilities for comprehensive financial planning, budgeting, and analysis.​ JDE may also present challenges in ensuring data integrity and accuracy especially dealing with large volumes of financial data or complex data structures. Oracle EPM includes data integration and quality management features that help ensure accurate data.​
