During the Focus Connect we will host a workshop and breakout session. In the breakout session we will show a new take on customisation and extensibility. Together with our client DSV, we created a safe, modular approach to customisations and extensions of existing JDA software without breaking the core.

During the workshop we want to talk about a new approach for software implementation. Plenty of companies see that the old way of doing implementations is no longer up to par. Especially, in this fast changing market. Nonetheless how well the software is build, if you cannot embrace change and deliver value, your project is doomed. We have adopted the agile & devops frameworks from our software development experience. Moreover, we tuned it to work for JDA WMS implementations as well.
As it is in our nature to do things a little different, we’ve decided to team up with stand-up comedy crew Boom Chicago. Together we will inspire you with some thought provoking humor during this workshop!

Watch the trailer for our presentation on WMS implementation projects below.
Spoiler alert: It might be a little bit over the top 😉
