The investment by JD Edwards is one of the largest announced in the region this year, with an estimated value running into several millions of dollars. To support its expansion plan, the company has appointed former director of strategic initiatives at JD Edwards, Fady Sfeir, as managing director for the Middle East.

Founded in 1977 and headquartered in Denver, JD Edwards focuses on long-term business partnerships and helping its 6,600 customers in more than 110 countries collaborate electronically to manage their business processes, supply chains, enterprise assets, and supplier and customer relationships. — (menareport.com)
