Syntax Application Managed Services & Support for JD Edwards
On-Demand Application Support for JD Edwards
Recruiting and training staff, managing daily operations, and retaining maximum performance from your JD Edwards instances are challenges all organizations face.
Striking the right balance between providing business users the support they need, with both speed and cost-efficiency, adds an additional layer of complexity to ERP management. Consequently, many JD Edwards customer organizations find themselves understaffed and under skilled.
The Syntax JDE AMS team resolves this challenge by providing you with on-demand, remote access to the experts you need to maintain your JDE applications.

Three Tangible Benefits
Partner With Syntax for JDE AMS To Gain 3 Immediate Benefits:
1. Cut Total Cost of JDE Ownership by 20% or More
JDE subject matter experts are difficult to find, expensive to hire and challenging to retain. Syntax’s AMS team relieves these headaches by giving you access to the JDE skillsets you need, when you need them, at a pricing model tailored to match your business requirements.
Clients who partner with Syntax for AMS typically see their total cost of ownership (TCO) drop by 20% or more.
2. Improve Support and Responsiveness to the Business Users
Providing consistent and timely support for applications such as JD Edwards Financials and JD Edwards HCM is a challenge for organizations who don’t have the budget to staff multiple full-time employees skilled in each of those competencies.
Syntax’s AMS team removes that pain point by providing on-demand access to a team of certified JD Edwards Subject Matter Experts who are dedicated to supporting customer environments.
3. Refocus Staff on Strategic Objectives and Projects
If staffing costs typically constitute the largest line-item of most corporate IT budgets, doesn’t it make sense that these experts’ efforts should be focused on creating value for your business? Too often, full-time JDE specialists are forced to spend their time on routine tasks, end user questions, and daily operational support which, while essential, provide little additional value to your JDE solutions and take away from key initiatives and enhancements.
Partnering with Syntax’s AMS team frees internal staff from the day-to-day maintenance and support of your JDE applications, allowing your team to focus on strategic projects that directly advance your business goals.
Syntax AMS Methodology and Configurable Service Delivery
The Syntax AMS team begins every engagement by gathering information to build a comprehensive customer profile, detailing your functional system setup, business requirements, and operational schedules. We analyze available documentation, along with a system configuration review, to build a complete portfolio of your business and system processes.
In addition, we build relationships with members of client staff, both IT and power users, to ensure that the Syntax AMS team serves as an extension of your internal team. Finally, we meet regularly with our clients to identify tasks and business needs, and prioritize requests, with the goal of burning down your existing support backlog and finding new ways to add value. We can even conduct remote training on specific features or procedures within your JDE system.
Simplify JDE Maintenance and Management
Syntax’s AMS team simplifies the end-to-end maintenance and management of your JD Edwards environment.
The Syntax AMS team will also tailor JD Edwards enhancement strategies that are right for you and ensure you remain “code current.”
Most importantly, our AMS team acts as a true partner as we work with you to continually review your workflows, setups/configurations and customizations looking for ways to either enhance performance or improve efficiency through automation. We also actively work to identify areas where we can train your JD Edwards user base to better use functionality, just as we work to help you identify new functionality that can help improve business processes.
Infrastructure Managed Services
There are three key questions to ask yourself when you are assessing the need for managed services for IT infrastructure.
Is your IT infrastructure team focused on strategic initiatives, or does it spend most of its time answering helpdesk calls and remediating troublesome hardware issues?
Have sudden departures of key staffers left you struggling to keep mission-critical components of your IT infrastructure up and running?
Are you forced to devote shrinking capital budgets on aging hardware simply to meet minimum availability and performance requirements?
The Syntax Infrastructure Managed Services team resolves these issues by relieving you of the day-to-day burdens of managing your IT infrastructure. Whether you host your hardware in house or collocate in a third-party data center, Syntax simplifies the complexity and reduces the cost of managing and maintaining your IT infrastructure such as servers, network, backup, and storage technologies.
As part of our Infrastructure Managed Services offering, our team of experienced consultants fully supports your operating system whether you rely on Windows, Unix, OS/400 or Linux.
Standard Syntax Infrastructure Managed Services Tasks

We also conduct detailed security audits and deliver vulnerability assessments and, based on those results, work with you to configure the security components of your infrastructure and optimize it to meet your security requirements. We also handle routine tasks such as kernel updates and patching, events log verifications, and remediation.
Benefit from SSAE 16 Type II, SOC 2 Controls and Processes
The Syntax Enterprise Cloud is SSAE 16 Type II, SOC 2 certified, an auditing standard for professional service organizations.
SSAE 16 Type II certification helps ensure compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley and other regulatory requirements.
