    Josh, excellent post about Oracle’s Fusion apps. I agree that Oracle really needs to do a separate Fusion apps conference every year. That will probably start happening in 2015.

    I have worked in the JD Edwards space for 21 years, and I think I know what’s coming:

    In 2015 we’ll see the first significant wave of existing JDE clients convert to Fusion apps for their core business processes.

    In 2020, Oracle will announce that standard JD Edwards support and enhancements are going away by 2025. (No one ever said Applications Unlimited was forever.) By this time there will be a shakeout among all the JDE vendors. The survivors will be supporting former JDE clients on Fusion apps, and competing with everyone else for other Fusion clients.
