JDA-RedPrairie Merger Commentary

In December 2012, JDA Software and RedPrairie merged, forming a powerhouse enterprise uniquely positioned to deliver robust, integrated supply chain planning and execution solutions to help companies address today’s global business challenges. Following are a few industry perspectives on the merger:

“From our perspective, the [merger] aligns with the reality that manufacturers and retailers need to operate in an omnichannel environment, with a seamless experience for customers and consumers.”

–Kimberly Knickle, IDC Manufacturing Insights4

“It seems to me the opportunity to think beyond "four walls" and plan demand, in the case of retailers all the way back up to sourcing, or in the case of manufacturers to plan and execute down to the shelf or the fulfillment of e-commerce orders, offers a really intriguing opportunity to deliver more effectively on private-label and branded merchandise assortments to demanding consumers browsing and buying across channels.”

–George Lawrie, Forrester5

“Combining RedPrairie and JDA not only simplifies our vendor landscape, it also gives us access to a stronger organization with the resources to invest more in its supply chain execution solutions.”

–Mike Balik, Head of Global Operations Technology, GSI Commerce (an eBay company)
