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

Surely, i2 has been a mess as an acquirer (remember the $5 billion Aspect write off in the early 2000s, and wasted opportunities with RiverOne, Supplybase, Trade Service Corp., Rightworks Corp. , etc.?), but JDA will not necessarily have the same problem.

On November 1, 2012, RedPrairie Corporation and JDA Software announced their merger.
