The solutions co-developed by JDA and Panasonic will improve the value chain within a customer’s operations by enhancing production plans, demand and supply predictions and management of store inventory
JDA Software, Inc, a leader in providing AI/ML-driven supply chain and retail solutions, and Panasonic Corporation, a global leader in the development of diverse electronics technologies and solutions, have entered into a partnership to co-develop integrated solutions.
As per the partnership, they will co-develop integrated solutions by utilising the JDA Luminate family of solutions and the unique technologies of Panasonic for manufacturing, retail and logistics industries.
By combining expertise, JDA and Panasonic will bring wide-ranging process innovations to their customers by leveraging digital edge technologies integrating software-as-a-service (SaaS), Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), advanced analytics and real-time sensing technologies.
Solutions to improve value chain
The solutions co-developed by the two companies will improve the value chain within a customer’s operations by enhancing production plans, demand and supply predictions, lead times, and management of store inventory.
Commenting on the development, Girish Rishi, CEO, JDA Software, said, “The autonomous supply chain transformation is just beginning, and it will be built on correlating edge technologies with enterprise supply chain software. The JDA partnership with Panasonic to co-innovate and deliver solutions to our customers is a major step in that direction.”
Yasu Higuchi, CEO of Panasonic’s B2B business, Connected Solutions Company, said, “As part of our solutions business strategy, Panasonic is using the know-how we have cultivated in the manufacturing industry and our own core technologies to become a total solutions integrator for customers in the logistics and retail fields. However, knowledge and hardware alone cannot completely solve all our customers’ needs. Through this collaboration with supply chain industry leader JDA, I am confident that we will create synergies with JDA’s AI/ML-based Luminate software solutions to comprehensively solve the problems facing our customers.”
With this association, JDA and Panasonic will leverage the strengths of their respective client bases to expand into new markets and work collectively to promote business worldwide by delivering innovative solutions.
