ERP Skills needed to help solve looming global workforce shortage

Posted by Joel Schipper on January 11, 2015

I intend to post this same comment on the blog of, a new non-profit aimed at providing ERP skills anchored in Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne to college students in business programs with a concentration in Information Technology.

I’ve just listened to a TED talk about a world-wide labor shortage that will develop in the next 15 years. The available workforce has already been born, and the students that JDE101 is trying to reach will be the emerging managers of that workforce.

We all know that technology has eliminated many routine level jobs, but the TED talk also points out that technology will create more jobs than it destroys in order to develop and manage that technology.

That said, being knowledgeable in a leading software tool such as JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, is one way for a college student today to position him or herself to help fill that looming labor shortage, and assure their self a good income for a long time to come. JDE E1 is not going away – I’ve written about that before on my own blog.

So check out an expert opinion on this subject with the following TED talk.
