Khalil Rehman of KR Programmers gave the book 5 out of 5 stars

I believe this book will be a useful addition to the library of any Programme Manager or member of the leadership team as well as applications DBAs embarking on a JD Edwards Enterprise One implementation.

I have spend the last 30 years managing Oracle E-Business Suite implementations and have gotten used to the nuances of performance tuning.

It's wonderful to have an easy to read book which clearly lays out the areas that need special attention in order to fine tune the systems performance.

The book starts off with a high level view of those components. The book proceeds to dig into the details that cause concern for the system administrators. Across most System One implementations the fundamental building blocks are consistent, you must have certain servers and services in place to provide the core functionality.

The next section describes the system administrators methodology playbook for tuning the system:

  • Technical architecture
  • Tuning the Web Tier
  • Tuning the Foundation Tier
  • Tuning The Database Tier
  • Tuning The Interface Tier

I can't claim to be an expert having read the book but I am certainly better prepared to sit with my new project team and ask open questions and gauge what needs to be done to fine tune the systems performance.
