JDA FOCUS 2010 Impressions - Part 1


Last year I attended the JDA FOCUS 2009 conference to realize that Scottsdale, Arizona-based JDA Software (NASDAQ: JDAS) has become a force to be reckoned with in the vast supply chain management (SCM) space. Although far from being a vocal or touchy-feely company, throughout its history JDA has been run fairly effectively by applying basic principles of sound management

One aspect is the managerial and fiscal discipline, which in JDA’s case has been without reproach, as already noted. In contrast, after reaching its climax some time in 1999/2000, when its stock price equaled that of Google ’s today, i2 has been on a ste Read More

Two Vendor Execs Discuss the Current B2B Pricing Market (and its Future)


Why are some companies still managing their prices with spreadsheets—and leaving their single most important profit lever to such inadequate if not harmful practices? TEC principal analyst P.J. Jakovljevic finds out and sits down with two vendor execs to see how B2B pricing software allows companies to detect profit anomalies and take rapid pricing actions, increasing their revenues and profits and gaining business agility.

b2b pricing solution 2010  Execs Discuss the Current B2B Pricing Market (and its Future) Based on the upbeat results of some business-to-business (B2B) pricing vendors in 2011, one could easily assume that the pricing software market’s value proposition is well known and accepted by companies en masse. At least in the retail sector this assumption could be validated by IBM ’s recent acquisition of the retail pricing and assortment optimization leader DemandTec .

The Art, Science & Software Behind (Optimal) Retail Pricing - Part 4


Part 1 of this blog post series expanded on some of TEC’s earlier articles about companies’ need for better pricing management and optimization practices. This series, which focuses on the complexity of pricing and promotions in retailing, was inspired by JDA Software’s recent “edu-nouncement” on leading retailers consumer-centric pricing and promotions strategies and by Revionics’ recent (and

While the retail pricing specialist DemandTec still might have a significant advantage over JDA in terms of a very strong reference list ( Read More
