Ernst & Young joins JDA to drive digital supply chain transformations
One of the ‘Big Four’ accountancy firms Ernst & Young (EY) has teamed up with JDA Software to help their clients digitally transform their supply chains.
Under the alliance, EY and JDA will collaborate to drive supply chain efficiencies, assess current and future supply chain needs and determine an approach to reinventing the supply chain for clients.
EY and JDA will work together to help clients improve critical supply chain planning processes.
Leveraging JDA’s portfolio, which harnesses the power of advanced data analytics and machine learning capabilities, the alliance will help companies to streamline their supply chains, increase speed to market and create superior customer experiences and competitive advantage.
The JDA solutions, combined with the EY Integrated Digital Planning Solution and the EY Digital Fulfillment Solution, will help clients align their logistics strategy with their business model and growth strategy so they can address rapidly changing markets, disruptive technology trends and evolving customer needs with increased transparency across the entire supply chain.
Geoff Vickrey, Partner, EY Americas Performance Improvement Leader and executive sponsor of the alliance, said: “Supply chains and operations today are undergoing radical restructuring, driven by digitalisation of assets and infrastructure, and must perform better than ever before.
JDA and EY share a laser focus on driving innovation and strategic competitiveness across clients’ value chain. Together, we can help organizations implement the flexible, agile supply chain operations that are so essential to their success.”
Alex Price, JDA Group Vice President, Global Alliances, Channel and Technology Ecosystem Strategy, commented: “We believe that our mutual focus on co-innovation and EY’s strength in implementing digital strategies complement each other and will help clients derive value from their supply chain investments.
“We are focused on delivering game-changing new products, winning patents and developing innovative leading practices that will shape the future of supply chain. Collaborating with EY, we look forward to bringing these new solutions to market.”
