Based in Scottsdale, AZ, BlueYonder (previously JDA Software) is a leading software and supply chain management firm. BlueYonder is built through a portfolio of acquisition building products encompassing more than 100 applications in 25+ different platforms. Many of these solutions are comprised of various data models and different ways of integration (Database, SOAP, REST, JMS, Custom, etc.).
Due to this diverse landscape, BlueYonder applications are hosted in BlueYonder Cloud, Google Cloud, Azure, and customer specific Data Centers. As a result, customer systems need to securely bridge a significant number of data centers that could average almost 35 systems feeding data into and out of BlueYonder. Incoming transactional and bulk data to applications could range from several Megabytes to several Gigabytes with multiple systems having their own representation of the same data elements.
During this project, BlueYonder sought the rapid delivery of business workflows between internal and external applications. If successful, this project would reduce the TCO (total cost of ownership) and TCI (total capital investment) for customer integrations. Moreover, BlueYonder needed to develop fast paced 'in the field' integrations between customer's backend systems and the customization of existing workflows.
The solutions and services that the Apisero team developed have assisted BlueYonder in streamlining their application integrations throughout their diverse system landscape. These standardize integrations through canonical GS1 models facilitate rapid customization of product integrations for consumer requirements.
Moreover, the Integration Testing Framework and Containerization Services streamline deployment as part of an overall CI/CD framework, allowing BlueYonder to obtain configuration and deployment automations faster and easier than before.
