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.

Because of various implementation snafus, Hershey was unable to effectively ship its products to retailers for Halloween and Christmas of 1999.

Benefits of ERP Selecting the right ERP system can help get you on the right track: • efficient handling of order processing and production scheduling • management and Read More
