SaaS Momentum Fuels JDA's Strong Q2 Results


300 percent SaaS bookings growth and 11 percent revenue growth
spur Q2 results

Software, Inc.
today announced strong financial momentum and
customer demand for its software and software-as-a-service (SaaS)
solutions in the second quarter of 2018. These results underscore JDA's
focus on delivering on digital supply chain transformations across its
end-to-end supply chain platform, delivering cognitive insights that
enable more intelligent, automated business decisions to help make
companies more competitive and profitable.

"Customer response to our JDA Luminate product line has been very
positive. With our recently
announced acquisition of Blue Yonder
and our sights set on
delivering an Autonomous Supply ChainTM, we are infusing new,
innovative capabilities on the edge to further automate intelligent
decision-making," said Girish Rishi, chief executive officer, JDA.
"Also, I take this opportunity to acknowledge the JDA team that is
living our values and building a culture of operational excellence,
which has led to yet another quarter of delivering profitable growth
across each segment of our business."

SaaS bookings accelerate in Q2, coupled with sustained profitable
growth across Product bookings
