My company is in the process of migrating from B7331 to XE. I just would
like to know from the people running XE what they think about it. Is it a
good version ? Any problems during the implementation? What about HR and
Payroll modules (do they work)? Any input will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

HR and Payroll on XE have been relatively good. XE w/Upd1 has numerous
(pretty nasty) problems. We have about 16 issues that we ended up fixing
ourselves over two months to become stable. R31802 (WIP) is a disaster
(always has been). I think we have about 7 or 8 of our own fixes in this on
UBE at the moment.

Maybe Update 2 helped... I don't know.

We have had numerous ESU requirements of late. Almost all of them have
included a very small number of objects. Which is GREAT. Much more
manageable. I don't know if JDE actively improved this... Or if we
have just been lucky lately on ESUs.

I will be nice and give credit to JDE for taking a bit more time to think
though the object packaging of ESUs.

Thanks a bunch.
