Support Team Sizes


Well Known Member
Hi List,

I'm about to begin a process of reviewing our technical support for One
World & was just wondering what size and mix of a team is generally needed
to keep the system ticking over nicely.

We have 150 users on a mixture of FAT + Jas clients, 3 enterprise servers (2
live, 1 test), a database server and 2 Jas servers (1 test)

Thanks in advance for your input,

check the Downloads section of the main website for a document titled "Survey of OneWorld IS Support". Its over a year old but still pertinent I think.

FYI we here use Mfg, Financials, and Distibution for approx. 80-100 concurrent users. All clients are FAT in a single site. We have 1 Enterprise Server (HP D390) that also has the Oracle database instance resident.

We have 2.25 people dedicated to the following OneWorld related areas:
- UNIX Server admin
- Oracle DB Admin
- All OneWorld specific functions (user support, CNC admin, development, etc)

And, yes, things do tick over nicely :)

We currently are running OneWorld B733.2 Financials, Distribution and Manufacturng with 100+ Fat clients, 2 Enterprise Servers and one Data Server.

We have 3 people on our IS staff dedicated to working with OneWorld:
1 - CNC and Database administration
1 - Developer
1 - Application Support

This has been a successful combination for us over the last 1.5 years, but we are now considering bringing in another application person to balance some of the app. load.

You may need a CNC, a DBA and a system Admin.
If you have more money, then get a programmer and a helpdesk.
The more people you could have, the more nicely to handle the support.
Anyway you could consider me as a valued candidate.
I am working in IT field since 1987 and has JDE training in Atlanta and
Toronto for B7331/B7332 and XE.
I am also the SQL DBA and have MCSE and MCSD from Microsoft.
Our IT budget cut 33% for this year and people are looking for escape...
