SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--JDA Software Group, Inc. today announced that 20 JDA customers were recently named to the 13th annual “Gartner Supply Chain Top 25 for 2017.”* The report** identifies supply chain leaders, highlighting their best practices for heads of supply chain and strategy organizations, and is a platform for insights, learning, debate and contributions to the rising influence of supply chain practices on the global economy. The findings were announced at the Gartner Supply Chain Executive Conference, held last week at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa in Phoenix.
“It is no surprise to us that so many of Gartner’s supply chain top 25 are JDA customers. We feel we are the only vendor truly capable of powering the digital supply chain from end-to-end,” said Kevin Iaquinto, chief marketing officer, JDA. “We congratulate all of those named to Gartner’s top 25 list. Our 4,500 global associates are maniacally focused every day on helping our customers deliver faster, cheaper and better by capturing the edge presented by today’s digital transformation.”
According to “The Gartner Supply Chain Top 25 for 2017” report***, three key trends stand out this year for the supply chain leaders, including digitalization of the supply chain, adaptive organizations and capabilities, and developing and fostering health ecosystems.
“These trends highlighted by Gartner are fundamental to the success of global organizations as they hone in on the technology that will not only transform their business, and shift them towards a more customer-centric organization, it will also sharpen their competitive edge, which is paramount to success in today’s competitive market,” continued Iaquinto.

About the Gartner Supply Chain Top 25
The Supply Chain Top 25 rankings comprise two main components: business performance and opinion. Business performance in the form of public financial and CSR data provides a view into how companies have performed in the past, while the opinion component offers an eye to future potential and reflects leadership in the supply chain community. These two components are combined into a total composite score.
Gartner analysts derive a master list of companies from a combination of the Fortune Global 500 and the Forbes Global 2000. In an effort to maintain the list of companies evaluated at a manageable level and in recognition of the inflation and growth these larger companies have experienced, in 2015 the general revenue threshold was increased to $12 billion, up from $10 billion.”**
