EnterpriseOne is a very robust enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. This means that it offers a lot of specialty applications that users can use to their advantage. In this chapter we are going to look at some of the major applications that you need to be aware of in EnterpriseOne.
We will touch on the Object Management Workbench (OMW). This application has change management features built into the tool. We will explain how it can help meet your software development life cycle requirements. It is also a single interface for your developers to access all the tools in EnterpriseOne.
