JDA Special Interest Groups (SIGs) provide an environment where members can share ideas on product direction and enhancements with JDA Product Management. SIGs are typically organized around JDA solutions with each SIG managed by a customer-elected chairperson, as well as a JDA associate who serves as SIG manager. The Users Group officers are responsible for managing the SIGs and ensuring their voice is heard by JDA Product Management. Officers meet each month to discuss and update SIG goals as well as discuss how to increase registration and SIG participation. Officers also meet quarterly with SIG Chairs and SIG Managers to review goals and network in order to gain the most value from their JDA investment.
“The Special Interest Groups play a very important role in helping JDA fulfill its commitment to exceptional solutions for our customers. The mission of the Special Interest Groups is to foster an environment where active participation maximizes your company’s investment in JDA solutions and enables you to grow both personally and professionally through collaboration with other supply chain professionals,” said David King, executive vice president, product development and center of excellence, JDA Software. “The JDA Users Group Officers and the SIG Chairs and Managers play an important part in enabling JDA to deliver continuous improvement and innovation to our product portfolio.”
