I clipped the following from an information week emailing. I am interested
because I think that if there was ever a deal likely to produce NT horror
stories, this is it. 


_______J.D. Edwards Wins Digital ERP Contract__________
J.D. Edwards, which is porting its products from the AS/400 
to other platforms, has seen that effort bear fruit with a 
multimillion dollar deal in which  Digital Equipment will 
deploy the software developer's Windows NT-based enterprise 
resource planning suite. 

Digital will use J.D. Edwards' OneWorld suite to streamline 
logistic, distribution, and financial data throughout 
Digital's Multivendor Customer Service division's operations 
in 37 countries. The Distribution/Logistics Management 
Internet-based software will let Digital manage inventory 
anywhere in the supply chain through a single database that 
will support its warehouses, distribution centers, worldwide 
plants, and vendor-managed sites.

J.D. Edwards is "the stealth ERP vendor," says Josh 
Greenbaum, an analyst with the Hurwitz Group. "OneWorld is a 
very well-architected multiplatform system." The Denver-
based company is currently ranked fifth among ERP vendors, 
according to Greenbaum.  -- Jennifer Mateyaschuk
