Yalumba Wine Upgrades ERP, Database to Sustain Growth
Founded in 1849, Yalumba Wine Company is Australia's oldest family-owned winery. In August 2005, with Oracle's Fusion project underway, the winemaker decided to review its existing JD Edwards World Xe implementation and supporting environment to ensure the long-term viability of its information technology architecture. After a thorough evaluation, Yalumba decided to upgrade to Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne version 8.11 SP1 with Oracle Tools 8.95 and migrate from Oracle9i Database to Oracle Database 10g. The implementation was completed on May 1, 2006. Yalumba subsequently upgraded to Oracle Tools 8.96 in April 2007. Using the latest release ensured the company could leverage the new underlying functionality when required.
