JDA FOCUS 2010 Impressions - Part 2

Part 1 of this blog series talked about my attendance of the JDA FOCUS 2010 conference on the heels of the recent merger between JDA Software (NASDAQ: JDAS) and i2 Technologies.

JDA’s vision is to provide SCM solutions that span from the supplier (raw material planning) via factory, vendor’s distribution center (DC) and retail DC to the retail shelf (or online catalog).

RedPrairie and JDA Software Merger, Part One: What’s (Not) to Like?

My blog series in 2009 entitled “A Tale of a Few Good SCM Players” talked at great length about RedPrairie Corporation, JDA Software, and Manhattan Associates, including their corporate history and acquisitions. The general feeling at the time was that hardly any of these three great supply chain management (SCM) software companies would remain independent in the

In fact, JDA has done quite a decent job with Manugistics, much better than anyone expected. From that merger came the idea of converging the needs of CPG manufacturers with those of retailers. JDA may have wanted to add i2 to this portfolio because of i2’s better transportation management system (TMS) capabilities and Read More

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

i2 lawsuit  failed merger efforts with i2 Technologies in early 2009. In private conversations, JDA executives shrugged the failed merger off as a good riddance, since the discrete manufacturing industries that i2 targets were quite affected by the recession (e.g., hi tech and automotive), in contrast to JDA’s more recession-proof target industries (we all have to eat, drink, and wear something after all). While I got their points in part, I couldn’t also help but feeling some “sour grapes” attitude. Well, Read More

More Marketplace Success For Manugistics?

Give Manugistics high marks in self-confidence: some vendors are reluctant to announce new client wins before successful completion of the implementation, let alone before the deal is final.

i2 lawsuit  ran neck-and neck with i2 Technologies. Though i2 has moved on to become a force in e-commerce, both alone and in partnership with Ariba, IBM and others, Manugistics clearly remains a contender, especially with wins at established e-commerce companies like Amazon.com. Of course, it may be that Manugistics simply wants to associate its name as often as possible with electronic marketplaces. Regardless of whether it wins the contract or not, the fact that it was in the running goes some way toward keeping Read More

What Can Manufacturers Do in a Tough Economy? - Part I

According to the proverb “calamity is the touchstone of a brave mind,” in these tough times some supply chain management (SCM) vendors have been trying to take stock (no pun intended) of their offerings and how best to offer these to customers, to mutual benefit. In fact, I have recently seen some intriguing (if not bizarre) press releases (PRs), which read like some type of whitepapers or
