JDA Software Group, Inc., today announced its Distribution-Centric Supply Chain Suite, an integrated set of cloud-based best-of-breed supply chain planning and execution solutions that holistically and iteratively solve inventory planning, replenishment and order fulfillment challenges.
JDA recognizes that companies everywhere are facing an unprecedented set of supply chain challenges that are driving the need for significant change. Omni-channel complexity, growing competitive pressures and tightening margins are forcing organizations to rethink their supply chain strategies, tear down silos and rethink network execution holistically. To help companies strategically address these challenges along their supply chain journey, JDA is launching its Distribution-Centric Supply Chain Suite that empowers retailers, manufacturers, 3PLs and wholesale distributors with the necessary elements required for intelligent and profitable distribution decision making.
Built upon decades of planning and execution experience, JDA’s Distribution-Centric Supply Chain Suite fulfills the vision of true inter-enterprise visibility and constraint-aware planning by enabling intelligent and profitable distribution decision-making that reduces inventory levels and costs, improves customer service through superior product availability and faster throughput, and creates more agile, profitable, and responsive operations.
“JDA has delivered unparalleled value to our customers over the past two decades by providing unmatched functionality to each stakeholder in the end-to-end supply chain," said Hamish Brewer, chief executive officer, JDA Software. “Now we are going to unlock a whole new layer of benefits by empowering those same stakeholders to work together within and between enterprises in new and exciting ways. DCS represents the future of supply chain and only JDA has the assets to credibly deliver this game-changing capability. This is a very exciting evolution for our company!”
The JDA Distribution-Centric Supply Chain Suite provides the following key capabilities and benefits:
- A single, holistic view of demand built from point-of-sale (POS) data and shaped by factors such as price, promotion and other events, that automatically drives optimal inventory distribution decisions along with warehouse planning of labor and slotting.
- Execution-aware planning that eliminates silos to proactively understand and plan against downstream constraints such as carrier capacity and warehouse throughput to eliminate bottlenecks and excess labor costs.
- Enterprise-wide inventory visibility to inventory and orders, coupled with profitable order promising logic to help achieve customer satisfaction without sacrificing margin.
- Iterative planning and execution detects changes and disruptions as they occur across the supply chain, enabling efficient re-planning on a new set of execution constraints; eliminating latency, manual rework, and inadequate on-the-fly decision making.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
