JDA announces integration and rapid decision-making for SAP HANA

Supply chain management software company JDA has launched its JDA Connect for SAP HANA. This is a pre-packaged solution that enables rapid integration between JDA Manufacturing Planning ad SAP ECC running SAP HANA.

Rapid end-to-end planning cycle times are increasingly critical to customers that deal with complex supply chains and highly volatile customer demand. Faster planning removes latency between real-time events and supply chain plans, allowing customers to adjust as necessary.

JDA customers leveraging SAP ECC will now be able to create seamless connections with JDA Manufacturing Planning, providing the ability to process planning data an order of magnitude faster, while decreasing implementation time and cost.

Connecting all pertinent business objects between SAP and JDA, this rapid integration solution performs integrity checks and aggregations on data elements using different SAP HANA Views in real-time.

“JDA continues to invest in new technologies that help companies transform their supply chain processes to quickly and profitably respond in today’s digitally enabled world. JDA Connect is proof of this, and enables SAP HANA customers to leverage seamless integration with JDA’s industry-leading supply chain planning and execution platform,” said David Johnston, senior vice president, solution strategy, JDA.

“In fact, we have seen particularly strong traction in the market with customers adopting our Manufacturing Planning solution recently, and this integration is a compelling combination for customers leveraging SAP HANA in tandem with JDA, to not only make faster planning decisions, but to enable a powerful, end-to-end supply chain.”
