Written by Chris Lemmon

JDA Software has completed the acquisition of Blue Yonder, which builds artificial intelligence (AI) solutions for retail and supply chain.

JDA hopes the acquisition will accelerate its Autonomous Supply Chain capabilities by connecting its systems and data to enable automated and more profitable business decisions. Blue Yonder’s software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions also further fuel development of JDA’s Luminate cognitive SaaS platform and solutions.

Michael Feindt, Blue Yonder founder and chief scientific officer, said: “Through Blue Yonder’s proven data science capabilities in our AI and ML solutions, we will enable real-time decision-making that unlocks more autonomous, profitable business decisions throughout our customers’ extended enterprises, unleashing the full business impact of intelligent data and systems.”

Desikan Madhavanur, chief development officer of JDA, added: “Blue Yonder will rapidly accelerate the JDA Luminate product roadmap, helping us to continually deliver cognitive solutions that deliver game-changing and impactful business value to our customers.”
