JDA Donates Software to Mexico’s Tecnológico de Monterrey
Leading university in Mexico joins dozens of other major universities around the globe running JDA software in the classroom
JDA Software, Inc., today announced that as part of its University Gifting Program, it has provided Mexico’s Tecnológico de Monterrey with JDA® Supply Chain Strategist, JDA® Space Planning and JDA® Floor Planning software for classroom learning as the university helps shape the next generation of supply chain professionals.
JDA is committed to delivering solutions that empower companies to reduce costs, grow revenue and accelerate time to value through the development of end-to-end integrated retail and supply chain planning and execution strategies. JDA’s University Gifting Program has been established to extend this commitment by exposing students at leading academic institutions to JDA’s solutions. When students receive hands-on training using the very same tools used in the field today, they gain valuable knowledge and experiences that will set them on a path to career success after graduation. They are better able to understand concepts by applying and developing career skills they have studied in their supply chain textbooks. Providing the opportunity to practice real-world situations using world-class software is what drives the JDA University Gifting Program.
Tecnológico de Monterrey is a private university established in Monterrey, Mexico with 26 campuses throughout the country. Founded in 1943 by Don Eugenio Garza Sada and a group of industrialists in the city of Monterrey, the Tecnológico de Monterrey has since become one of the most recognized universities in Mexico and Latin America.
“Tecnológico de Monterrey is a leading university in Mexico and has one of the best supply chain programs in the region. We are pleased to provide them with JDA software that they can use in their classrooms as a learning tool, while also giving them real-world industry experience using our supply chain software,” said Antonio Boccalandro, president, Latin America, JDA. “We look forward to training professors and students on our software, and continuing to close the supply chain talent gap locally and globally by educating the rising supply chain and retail professionals of tomorrow.”
“Tecnológico de Monterrey is committed to a new educational model based on challenges, flexibility, and memorable experiences for our students. We want to help them become leaders that can identify opportunities and solve problems to make the world a better place,” said Dra Silvia Gonzalez Garcia, professor of marketing, Tecnologico de Monterrey. “JDA is a leading company with 40 plus locations globally, that offers an end-to-end supply chain and retail solutions, and therefore was a natural partner to help us prepare our students within the TEC 21 model.”
JDA partner GOLDCO has been supporting the relationship of JDA and Tecnológico de Monterrey in order to promote knowledge-sharing and helping to prepare the next generation of supply chain professionals.
“We are demonstrating our collective commitment to the Mexican business community, not only by defining and supporting their value practices but also by sharing their knowledge with the new generation of supply chain professionals. This software gifting program and donation considers future international exchanges with its technology laboratories as well as joint research programs, “said Manuel Oropeza, Managing Partner for GOLDCO.
