J.D. Edwards & Co. recently agreed to integrate activity-based management software from Armstrong Laing Group into its value-based management software and its ActivEra Knowledge Management system. The integration means that J.D. Edwards' OneWorld software and Armstrong Laing's Metify Activity-Based Management product will exchange a variety of traditional financial costing information, as well as data on processes defined in J.D. Edwards' operational systems. The combination will establish a repository of operational and financial data for making better value-based decisions.
