SAP up to more than 4 times more costly than JDE

Oracle has recently conducted a case study comparing the cost of ownership for their JD Edwards EnterpriseOne solution (JDE) against SAP in the same company.

Key findings:

  • SAP cost almost twice as much as JDE to implement;
  • SAP costs more than four times as much as JDE in administration per end-user;
  • SAP requires more than four times as many IT support staff as does JDE;
  • SAP has ongoing costs more than four times as much as JDE.

What is particularly interesting about this study - apart from the findings! - is that the comparison is between two similar divisions of the same company running similar business processes, so it is almost a direct comparison and therefore the findings are more compelling.

Oracle have given permission for us to share the case study, so please email me if you want a copy.
