JDA Launches Luminate Control Tower – “Digital Nerve Center” That Predicts and Prevents Supply Chain Disruptions and Maximizes Opportunities

Now generally available, one-of-a-kind JDA Luminate Control Tower
leverages machine learning to uniquely predict and prevent disruptions,
enabling prescriptive corrective actions before they occur

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–JDA
Software, Inc.
today announced the general availability of its
flagship leading-edge technology – JDA®
Luminate™ Control Tower
– a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution
that serves as an end-to-end crisis control center allowing companies to
see, interpret, and act on real-time information from the entire supply
chain and extended third-party digital ecosystem. This allows companies
to sense unexpected events across their cross-enterprise supply chains,
identify the potential impact of actual and potential disruptions or
demand changes, and prescribing recommended corrective action with
machine learning (ML)-based guidance.

Electrolux, a leading global appliance company, is the first
customer to go live on JDA Luminate Control Tower, in an impressive five
months. Electrolux plans to roll-out the solution globally throughout
2019 to tap into the solution’s powerful predictive and prescriptive
capabilities.

“We are pleased with how quickly we were able to pilot JDA Luminate
Control Tower as a part of our digital supply chain strategy,” said
Johan Martinsson, Global IT Digital Operations Lead at Electrolux.
“Being able to have full visibility of our supply chain, as well as
prescriptive and predictive recommendations that alerts us to any
potential disruption will help us to ensuring a smooth, agile and
responsive supply chain.”

JDA Luminate Control Tower powers the “crisis control center” for
today’s global supply chains

Microsoft Azure-based JDA Luminate Control Tower uniquely provides three
key capabilities to power the crisis control center for today’s global
supply chains – real-time visibility across the digital partner
ecosystem, a collaborative and connected platform, and prescriptive
recommendations – supporting more intelligent scenario planning and
profitable responses, leading to improved service, increased revenue and
lower cost to serve. JDA Luminate Control Tower conducts what-if
analysis for different resolution options, then recommends or executes
optimal courses of action that balance short-term demands with long-term
strategic goals.

JDA Luminate Control Tower is the only solution in the market that
consumes internal and external digital signals – such as social media,
news, events, weather and IoT – from the digital ecosystem, including
distributors, suppliers and partners. By capturing and analyzing data
feeds from the digital edge, companies will gain a greater understanding
of consumer sentiment, supply conditions, demand insights and any
correlation to demand fluctuations. These capabilities enable planners
to predict the estimated time of arrival (ETA) for deliveries based on
real-time updates on weather, traffic, congestion, etc., as well as
identify accurate inventory positions based on delivery ETAs.

JDA named a leader in Nucleus Research Control Tower Matrix report

As further validation, Nucleus Research recently named JDA a leader in
its ‘Control
Tower Technology Value Matrix 2018’ report,
published in November,
noting ‘JDA’s strategic goal is to deliver an autonomous supply chain
that relies on visibility as its foundation but adds predictive and
prescriptive analytics as well as leveraging context-sensitive
self-learning capabilities that help orchestrate the supply chain from
end-to-end…Nucleus expects JDA to further push the boundaries on the
visibility and control that customers can realize.’

“We are proud to officially unveil JDA Luminate Control Tower as the
flagship technology that underscores our Luminate portfolio, a solution
we have brought to market over the last year, working closely with
select key customers for proof-of-concept deployments that are reaping
benefits such as increased planner efficiency by as much as 60 percent
and reduced logistics expenses by up to 30 percent,” said Desikan
Madhavanur, chief development officer, JDA. “JDA Luminate Control Tower
is a powerful, innovative nerve center that will change the game for our
customers, leveraging ML to predict and combat future supply chain
disruptions for the first time.”

JDA Luminate Control Tower anchors the JDA® Luminate™ family of
solutions, which extends and enhances JDA’s product portfolio, and is
built on a cognitive, real-time, connected platform that embraces
digital-edge technologies such as SaaS, the Internet of Things (IoT),

integration. Learn
