JDA Showcases Powerful Luminate Portfolio Built on Microsoft Azure at Hannover Messe

Imagine your supply chain could capitalize on big data, use AI/ML capabilities and a digital control tower to predict real-world behaviors, then prescribe action before it happens, and even act autonomously so you can get ahead of the market and competition. With JDA Software, Inc.’s, leading-edge JDA® Luminate™ portfolio – this is now possible. JDA will be highlighting Luminate Control Tower and Luminate Demand Edge in Microsoft stand in hall 7 at Hannover Messe, Europe’s largest technology trade show, held April 1-5, 2019.

JDA Luminate solutions leverage artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) algorithms developed by Germany-based Blue Yonder, whom JDA acquired in 2018. Blue Yonder was founded in 2008 in Karlsruhe, Germany, by former CERN scientist Professor Michael Feindt. Blue Yonder solutions are based on Microsoft Azure and they were named one of Microsoft’s retail partners of the year in 2018.

JDA predicts business opportunity and prevents supply chain disruption at Hannover Messe 2019

The award-winning Luminate Control Tower serves the global nerve center for today’s modern supply chains. This Microsoft Azure-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution enables manufacturers to sense and predict unexpected events across the supply chain, identify the potential impacts of such disruptions and orchestrate corrective action with ML-based prescriptive guidance and decision support. With Luminate Control Tower, customers can quickly conduct what-if analysis for different resolution options, then make optimal guided choices that balance short-term responsiveness with long-term strategic goals.

Luminate Demand Edge leverages AI and ML algorithms to deliver game-changing, autonomous forecast accuracy. Luminate Demand Edge develops highly accurate, probabilistic short-term demand forecasts that go beyond traditional forecasting methods to incorporate hundreds of demand factors – enabling manufacturers to make more informed, risk-aware business decisions.

Additionally, Dr. Michael Feindt, chief scientific officer, Blue Yonder, a JDA company and Gabriel Werner, vice president of pre-sales, JDA, will present on the topic of:“From Prediction to Decision – AI at Scale in Supply Chain,” at noon on Wednesday, April 3 in Halle 6 B30.

Hannover Messe attendees can see Luminate Control Tower and Demand Edge in the Microsoft stand in hall 7. Hannover Messe attendees is a one-stop event where all of the connected industry players will be in one place with 6,500 exhibitors from 75 countries and nearly 200,000 expected attendees.
