JDA Software the Only Company Positioned as a “Leader” in All Three Gartner Magic Quadrants Focused on Supply Chain Solutions

JDA Software Group, Inc. today announced that it is the one and only company to be positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders Quadrant of all three Magic Quadrants focused on supply chain. With the recent release of the “Magic Quadrant for Supply Chain Planning (SCP) System of Record (SOR),” JDA is the only company named a leader in all three supply chain-focused Magic Quadrants. The other Gartner Magic Quadrants for supply chain are the “Magic Quadrant for Transportation Management Systems,” and “Magic Quadrant for Warehouse Management Systems.” Gartner’s Magic Quadrant reports position vendors within a particular quadrant based on their completeness of vision and ability to execute.

“As the only supply chain solutions provider positioned as a Leader in all three supply chain Magic Quadrants, we believe it clearly demonstrates JDA’s leadership in the market and the unique value we provide our customers. We feel it is also a testament to the significant success our customers have achieved leveraging our unrivaled supply chain planning, transportation and warehouse solutions and services,” said Jean-Francois Gagne, chief product officer, JDA Software. “The breadth and depth of JDA’s supply chain solutions is unmatched and provides unprecedented speed, business insight and agility.
