JDA launches JDA Luminate, promises to "predict and shape demand"
JDA Software has unveiled JDA Luminate, which it says is a first-of-its-kind portfolio of next-generation solutions and core product enhancements, built on an open, cognitive, and connected platform.
The company said that its new solution embraces digital edge technologies such as software-as-a-service (SaaS), the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI) and advanced analytics.
It is being marketed as an intelligent way to predict and shape demand, fulfill faster and deliver seamless customer experiences.
“JDA Luminate solutions deliver a more cognitive, connected supply chain, which connects everything within and beyond our customers’ extended supply chain – data, systems, trading partners, machines, and networks – enabling them to make cognitive, actionable decisions,” said Desikan Madhavanur, executive vice president and chief development officer, JDA.
“JDA Luminate is built on a unique platform that extends and enhances existing JDA applications, delivering better data, better science, better experiences and ultimately better business outcomes.”
Luminate "seamlessly turns real-time data into fast, profitable business decisions by connecting stores, distribution centres, logistics, and manufacturing in a digital network, matching demand and supply continuously, at every point of the supply chain," said JDA in a release.
It uses edge technologies such as machine learning, AI, and social media, news, events and weather (SNEW) data to power a global supply chain network yielding greater customer insights, delivering better service, and driving competitive differentiation and revenue growth.
JDA Luminate includes the integration of applications, enhancements to core JDA applications, inclusion of a global technology partner ecosystem and cutting-edge innovations, all supported, enabled and delivered by JDA.
Next week, JDA will unveil a new Experience Centre at its world headquarters in Scottsdale that will showcase JDA Luminate, as well as new innovations in collaboration with JDA’s technology partner through mixed media, interactive experiences.
“Simply put, innovation will drive the shift toward the digital supply chain transformation. JDA Luminate is our vision for powering the next-generation supply chain, which is connected, intelligent and autonomous.
“We look forward to showcasing it, along with our innovation partner ecosystem, to our customers and partners at FOCUS this week, and unveiling it next week in the new Experience Center in Scottsdale,” concluded Madhavanur.
