JDA Software, Inc. announced it has once again been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of three supply chain Magic Quadrants; Magic Quadrant for Sales and Operations Planning Systems of Differentiation, Magic Quadrant for Transportation Management Systems2 and Magic Quadrant for Warehouse Management Systems3. With this announcement, JDA believes it continues to extend its industry leadership by being named a Leader in all four Gartner Magic Quadrants focused on SCM.

JDA Luminate™ solutions extend and enhance JDA’s solutions portfolio and embrace the cloud, internet of things (IoT) and advanced analytics and cross-platform integration with AI and ML from Blue Yonder. Already, customers are taking advantage of new Luminate technology such as the newly announced Luminate Warehouse Tasking, which extends and enhances JDA Warehouse Management and other warehouse management systems. Customers have proven to install Luminate Warehouse Tasking with quite literally a flip of a switch and no unintended consequences, downtime or impact.
The newly introduced JDA SCM Platform also addresses a market need for a comprehensive SCM platform approach – versus niche vendors focused on one aspect of supply chain management or emerging vendors that do not have the scale or the proven track record – while enabling customers and partners to build applications on top of JDA’s for the first time.
