Lawn and Garden LLC owns and operates products used in outdoor gardening activities. The Gilmour, Nelson, and Jobes brands have been relied on by consumers for over 50 years to provide quality products such as garden hoses, sprinklers, nozzles, and lawn fabric. ennVee implemented a comprehensive set of business applications and infrastructure components.

Business Challenges

LGI relied on an older software package with a green screen interface to manage their business. As a result of business expansion resulting from an acquisition, LGI wanted to standardize their business process on JDE. This would also give them the opportunity to improve financial management by streamlining processes and producing accurate reports to help make informed decisions.

Since the acquired business was already running JDE, the decision to use JDE was not a difficult one. In addition to JDE, LGI has also implemented the Oracle demand planning software Demantra in OCI.

Since LGI does not have a large internal IT staff, the decision to move to OCI was influenced by the scalability of the platform, the cost management features, and the performance of Oracle software on this platform.

Why did LGI choose Oracle Cloud Infrastructure?

LGI decided to deploy JDE running on OCI for a few compelling reasons. LGI sought to use a technology solution that could be deployed with minimal impact on the business. With elastic scaling, integration to 3rd party applications using OIC, and comprehensive security in OCI, JDE has detailed reporting capabilities and the required functionality to support the business.


LGI unified its enterprise operations on a single ERP platform by deploying Oracle JD Edwards EnterpriseOne on OCI for its North American business.

With JD Edwards EnterpriseOne running on OCI with Enterprise Database Service supporting 200 plus active users, LGI decreased server procurement, delivery, and installation time. Taking advantage of OCI’s on-demand scalability, the company can add more IT resources—computing power or storage—using one-click provisioning. As a result, the manufacturer can help ensure the high availability of enterprise applications, including during peak usage times, and is more agile in supporting business growth.

By improving the efficiency and accuracy of its inventory and financial statements, ennVee eliminated any risks associated with this process.

From a security standpoint, ennVee tapped Oracle Cloud data centers in North America for its JD Edwards EnterpriseOne instances and its disaster recovery site. Both regional data centers have single availability domains. ennVee used both regions—one as a primary site and the other as a disaster recovery site.


To deploy Oracle JD Edwards EnterpriseOne running on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, LGI collaborated closely with Oracle global systems integrator ennVee TechnoGroup to ensure a smooth journey.

Project Approach

The ennVee team worked with the Private Equity firm managing the acquisition, to work towards the scope of the implementation of JDE and other related software in OCI.

The project involved configuration setups performed by ennVee’s infrastructure personnel, delivering the below-mentioned,

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure: ennVee enabled the preparation of the environment to allow the installation of various software components. This was based on the best practices in designing and operating a cloud topology, that extended maximum business value for the Customer.

Job Scheduler: This involved installation/configuration of RevSoft and creating of job schedules

Oracle JD Edwards EnterpriseOne: Installation and configuration of Enterprise One in OCI, considering performance, security, availability, and cost parameters.

Environments: This step included development, prototype building, and production. Performance tuning was performed to ensure optimization of the Oracle database instance, ensuring corrective actions were undertaken to address identified roadblocks. This was followed by Non-Production and Production data migration.

Other Solutions: Other tasks included installing and configuring the AllOut Security, RFgen solution, Software Label Manager, and Oracle BennVeI Publisher.

Business Outcomes

  • The implemented solution supported all their JDE Workloads
