JDA Software, Inc. has 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.
JDA Luminate Control Tower 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 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), artificial intelligence, advanced analytics and cross-platform integration.
