Abstract: Welcome to JDE...we're all mad here! Over the years; I learned to embrace the madness; from those first wanderings as a JDE end user; to the terrifying (and rewarding) step into JDE Business Analyst Land; to my most recent path as a JDE Consultant. Along the way; I met some great traveling companions; took some forks in the road; forced myself to explore the unknown; and worked really; really hard. I'll share my best choices (get involved with Quest) and my lessons learned (learn to say no - really); as well a candid look at how being a consultant differs from being a customer. Presented by EmeraldCube; a Syntax Company.
