Through its acquisition of i2, and with the addition of Marvell to its customer roster of world-class semiconductor companies, JDA will build on the rich heritage of supply chain management success established by i2 in the discrete manufacturing industry over a period of more than 20 years. In addition, Marvell joins a premier group of companies in the semiconductor industry already using the i2-developed planning suite to enhance supply chain responsiveness and improve customer service while maintaining right-sized inventory levels and lower operating costs.
