JDA Named a Most Admired Company for the Third Year in a Row

For the third year in a row, JDA Software, Inc., has been named as a Most Admired Company in Arizona by Az Business magazine, which recognizes companies that excel in the areas of Workplace Culture, Leadership Excellence, Corporate and Social Responsibility, Customer Opinion and Innovation.

JDA has again been named to this significant listing for its workplace culture which centers on its core values of Results, Relentless and Teamwork and a spirit of pride through its hashtag #jdaproud, proliferated across the company, both internally and externally. JDA’s positive associate engagement and satisfaction, plus its commitment to driving relentless learning and innovation for associates to realize their full potential, has contributed to JDA’s consistent growth and profitability while attracting and retaining top talent.

“JDA’s global associates earned this award. The board and I are in their deep gratitude. Our associates like to say ‘A Culture, not A Company.’ Our associates know that if culture just happens, that is probably not a good thing; that culture needs to be worked upon every day by each of us,” said Girish Rishi, chief executive officer, JDA. “Our associates are obsessed with delivering value to our customers, are vested in learning and practice candor and collaboration, respectfully each day.”

As an Arizona-based company, JDA actively promotes that its associates embrace a ‘Sonoran Spirit’ which is based on the premise that in order to grow, JDA must deliver customer value, take care of its collective ecosystem of partners, customers and associates alike and respectfully collaborate as a united front. This, combined with JDA’s core values -- being relentless, fostering teamwork and delivering results - are the bedrock of the company that unite all JDA associates to drive success, profitability and growth for the company and for its more than 4,000 customers.

JDA is headquartered in Scottsdale and counts 700 leaders and executives and 400+ associates locally in Arizona and more than 4,600 globally. With its recent acquisition of Blue Yonder, JDA now has more than 70 data scientists focused on innovation and digital edge technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning and analytics. This includes JDA’s Scottsdale office, which houses its 13,200 square foot JDA Customer Experience Center (JXC), which was inaugurated in May 2018 by the Governor of Arizona. JDA’s office was also recently listed as one of the coolest offices in the Arizona valley by AZBigMedia.

JDA prides itself on driving commitment to learning and innovation, while fostering teamwork as a critical component to success. JDA encourages associates’ success and enrichment as the heart of the company. For example, all associates are encouraged to take one day of paid volunteer time off each year to serve at a charity of their choice within the local community, as JDA recognizes that participating in these activities will enrich and inspire the lives of its associates. JDA is also focused on developing high-potential women, with its “Winning Leadership” program, which highlights JDA’s commitment to diversity and inclusion and its Wednesdays for Women blog series. As a result, JDA’s engagement scores among its associates are at an all-time high with average associate tenure is in the 10+ year range, best in class for a major technology company.

“This is the most comprehensive corporate awards program in Arizona. And due to the breadth of the areas it examines, companies who are selected join a prestigious group of employers in Arizona. This program recognizes the wonderful contributions and impact these most admired companies bring to the state,” says Denise Gredler, founder & CEO of BestCompaniesAZ and co-founder of the MAC program.

All of the Arizona Most Admired winners were recognized at an awards reception held Thursday, September 13, 2018 at the Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort in Phoenix.

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. This...

How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and co...

Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Lo...
Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reducti...

Signs of a shift in the usage of public clouds are everywhere. Previously, as organizations outgrew old IT methods, the natural answer was to try the public cloud approach; however, the public platform alone is not a complete solution. Complaints include unpredictable/escalating costs and mounting security concerns in the public cloud. Ultimately, public cloud adoption can ultimately mean a shift of IT pains instead of a resolution. That's why the move to hybrid, custom, and multi-cloud will ...
Docker and Kubernetes are key elements of modern cloud native deployment automations. After building your microservices, common practice is to create docker images and create YAML files to automate the deployment with Docker and Kubernetes.
