Opus was also the clear choice on UPK conversion, in testing and security. In fact, some of the competitors we looked at to Opus do not have a true UPK converting process, which was a factor for JBPCO

In the summer of 2022, Paul Kreuger, the Chief Information Officer & Vice President of Information Technology, knew that their eLearning solution Oracle UPK was coming to the end of its support life in that year and needed to replace it to assist their employee base using IT Applications such as JD Edwards. Kreuger considered tools such as Ancile uPerform, Datango & Clicklearn, but settled on Epilogue Opus and was assisted through the selection process by their System Integrator, iLearnERP.
Kreuger tasked his Team with producing all educational, end user support and change content for their JDE installations across all business units, focusing on having all employees become self-sufficient on support in Finance, Manufacturing, Logistics, Materials, QA, and Supply Chain Management. Kreuger knew that one of the most important aspects was the ongoing, easy maintenance and consumption of that content for those 6 JDE areas.
Having used Oracle UPK extensively, JBPCO was able to implement Epilogue Opus in under 3 weeks in 2023 and have lots of Subject Matter Experts creating content in Opus: a testament to the effectiveness of Kreuger’s Team in change management and change communications. Looking forward with Opus, there are no restrictions to any other IT Application, such as Ceridian, Dayforce HCM, Salesforce & Docebo LMS at JBPCO.

JBPCO also looked at other solutions including Adobe Suite, Whatfix, TTS and WalkMe, and states “We took advise from our long standing Edwards’ system Integrator and tested all offerings thoroughly, and because of the content was 100% web based with Opus stored in one location via AWS, as well as the ability to use the Opus Content Library as an LCMS, the decision was straightforward”. Kreuger continues “Opus allows us to have a lean content development process, using the SMEs to author the content, then the L&D Teams review, edits and publishes from one screen and all the Opus outputs are updated : the Opus Solution also migrated all our UPK content in bulk in minutes with a high fidelity“ Kreuger continues “ ”.
Kreuger continues “The JBPCO IT Security Team are focused on keeping all the system data and information safe, and our due diligence for the thousands of end users meant that the IT Teams were heavily involved at every step” JBPCO also have planned to utilize Opus on RF Readers and Tablet PCs throughout the business units.
JBPCO likes the ease of editing in Opus, UPK conversion utility & language conversion functionality. Additional training benefits include Quizzes & Tests on the competency of manufacturing employees, as well as Sandbox access via Opus Simulations.

If you’re a fan of fresh lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower and other vegetables, there’s a good chance you’ve enjoyed Tanimura & Antle’s delicious products! They are one of the largest sellers at Costco and have been in business since 1982.
When T&A initially implemented JD Edwards World in 2016, they used Oracle’s UPK digital adoption tool to create documentation and simulations for user assistance. In, 2019, a transformation project in JDE EnterpriseOne led to an assessment that UPK would not continue to be the right Digital Adoption tool going forward as it was on-premise with key components that were desktop based – a poor fit for their migration to the cloud. They wanted something with the user content and output capabilities of UPK but easier to use so they could avoid the big learning curve that UPK required of Content Creators and Content Consumers (the users). As a lean organization, they also wanted a tool that required minimal involvement from IT which meant cloud based, easy to provision and set up
Finally, they needed to convert a large volume of existing UPK assets, both standard content from Oracle and custom developed content, as quickly as possible. In the past with UPK, system updates and changes made it difficult to maintain their help content and much of it had grown out of date. As a result, they needed a Digital Adoption tool that could easily create custom content in addition to converting relevant UPK content and updating it.
Summary of their experience:
Group 1000002792
They used a mix of employees and partners to convert, update or custom build over 400 topics for in-application user help and guidance.
Group 1000002791
By being fully cloud based, Opus allowed T&A to build content without desktop involvement, greatly speeding deployment while complying with T&A security req’s.
Group 1000002793
Opus’ workflow engine provided “air traffic control” over the UPK conversion process as well as customer content development – critical for the scale involved.
Opus checked all the boxes:
UPK migration
Easy custom content creation
Easy user access to help content
Workflow management for the full effort
Compliance with IT security requirements
