Prof. Dr. Michael Feindt (*1958) is the founder of the software company Blue Yonder, for which he now works as a strategic consultant. The scientist is considered an expert in data-driven software development, the learning of effects through data analysis and the development of new algorithms and tools in Big Data environments. In 2002, he founded a company to transfer his inventions in the field of predictive analytics from science to business. His idea: predictions in pricing and merchandise planning can be improved if they are made with the help of artificial intelligence.
Retail experts recognised the potential of the NeuroBayes algorithm he developed to automate operational decisions in the processes of retail companies. In 2008, managers from the Otto Group and Feindt founded the software company Blue Yonder. JDA Software acquired the company in 2018. In 2020, JDA Software changed its name to Blue Yonder.
