The Roadmap for CTB’s Transformational JD Edwards to Oracle Cloud Migration
CTB, Inc. is a leading designer and manufacturer of solutions for grain storage and preservation, poultry and pig production, and the processing of fish, vegetables, and other foods. This Berkshire Hathaway-owned company is committed to developing technologies that help agricultural producers become more efficient while maintaining a safe, sustainable, affordable, and abundant food supply.
CTB has relied on the JD Edwards World software suite since 1997 to manage financial, procurement, inventory, payroll, manufacturing configuration, and more. But as the company has grown, its technology have outpaced the capabilities of its current software. Growth often raises new challenges—and that’s been the case with CTB. Amidst heavy use of JDE solutions, the company experienced outages. And keeping up with updates as well as finding employees with JDE skillsets proved difficult.
The ArganoCSS Approach
Thanks to ArganoCSS’s processes and strategy, the CTB team now has a better understanding of all the benefits of moving to the Oracle Cloud, as well as how to get there. In-depth experience with JDE solutions enabled ArganoCSS to map CTB’s current software footprint to Oracle Cloud solutions. The results illuminated areas for application consolidation and new opportunities for business process automation. Additional analyses also determined the financial impact and business value of the migration.
CTB now knows exactly what’s required to make a successful transition to the cloud. ArganoCSS provided the company with a future state design of its technology stack, showing the Oracle Cloud solutions CTB will deploy for each business function. ArganoCSS also created an implementation timeline and plan to ensure CTB realizes the business value of Oracle Cloud solutions throughout the process.
What our client says
“ArganoCSS had such a strong understanding of JDE and they really understood where we were coming from. They were able to help align us with the right Oracle solution — it was a very good process for us.”
