JDA blog post interview with JDA CMO Kevin Iaquinto
(A bit of brand-speak gone wrong worth noting on the above link: "The new corporate identity also includes the new infusion of talent into JDA, from our new CEO, Bal Dial, and a number of new executives, to the influx of retail and supply chain experts up and down our product and service organizations." I didn't realize corporate identities included CEOs. Do they come in italics too?)
Encapsulating JDA's superior expertise, solutions and customer success through a new tagline, "Plan to deliver™," and a ground-up reimagining of JDA's visual look, attributes and logo, this new identity has launched an exciting new chapter for JDA. […] The company's new identity encapsulates the real business results JDA has delivered through its innovative solutions and 4,800 passionate associates.

The old logo, omg, what a piece of work. From the type choice to the shadow to the bevel to the configuration, just… no. The new acronym wordmark by contrast is much more considered and has a nice thing going with the diamond shape that also informs the cut of the terminal of the "j" and the tail of the "a". Although I normally am against notching letterforms for sport, I think the "d" would have benefitted from a cut too, as it already stands out from the other letters. Nonetheless, a decent bit of corporate logo work here.
