JDA Software Group has released a book on the digital strategies supply chain practitioners need to develop to respond and embrace rapid technology advancements.
JDA’s “Digital Supply Chain For Dummies, JDA Software Special Edition” was introduced at JDA FOCUS 2017, JDA’s annual global customer conference in Las Vegas. In the new book—which joins the other ‘For Dummies’ books from JDA, including “Profitable Omni-Channel For Dummies,” and “Supply Chain For Dummies”—supply chain practitioners and others will benefit from learning how to build and capitalize on the digital transformation currently underway. From production to warehouse to shipping to retail, organizations can use modern supply chain technology to revamp, revitalize and refine their processes in order to gain a competitive advantage. Readers will also get a closer look at real-world best practices in leveraging digitalization advancements like augmented reality, the Internet of Things (IoT) and advanced analytics.
“We wrote the latest ‘For Dummies’ book as the playbook for supply chain practitioners to use as they tackle the sea change underway, giving guidance on the digital strategies and technologies customers will want to consider as they embark on their digital supply chain journey,” said Fred Baumann, group vice president, industry strategy, JDA. “The book also covers the bases for IT considerations in enabling the new digital supply chain and is meant to arm customers for success.”
The book – authored by JDA experts Fred Baumann, Glen Ceniza, Serge Massicotte and Anand Medepalli – discusses topics including:
● Supply chain digitalization
● Defining your playbook for digital supply chain success
● Creating digital strategies and technologies
● Linking IT to the digital supply chain

This ‘For Dummies’ book defines the trends that make up digitalization – physical ‘things’ incorporating computer technology or IoT, readily available external big data, including social, news events and weather, and real-time, intelligent computer systems and software. It then delves into why having a digital supply chain strategy in place will help organizations profitably plan and deliver customized, individualized products and services.
