Customer Profile

Since 1976, GL Homes has grown from a small, local builder to one of the nation's largest. The success of the company is in the details. Communities are carefully planned to be both beautiful and functional. Floorplans are scrutinized for a maximum use of space and functionality. This quick growth was supported by an implementation of JD Edwards EnterpriseOne that has been upgraded over the years.

Why Premier?

GL Homes has partnered with the Premier Group for multiple JD Edwards consulting and CNC related projects.

GL Homes JD Edwards users were experiencing frustration managing multiple passwords for many sites. Premier was selected as the CNC provider to enable LDAP integration for JD Edwards EnterpriseOne. Through this project, GL Homes was able to eliminate the need for users to maintain a separate password for JD Edwards. Users are now able to log in with the same credentials they use they use to access their corporate network.

With security as a rising risk in many organizations, GL Homes reached out to Premier to support a security project for JD Edwards. Some environments were exposed to risk by using outdated security standards and configurations regarding SSL 3.0/TLS 1.0/TLS1.1. This left passwords without encryption, opening the door for malicious software to steal a password. Premier supported an initiative to enable highly secure protocols and disable legacy protocols in both PY and PD environments. Through this initiative, Premier worked with GL Homes to upgrade to the latest HTTPS security protocols for JD Edwards.
