    The Extraordinary Opportunity for Global Economies

    Supply chain management is vital to global competitiveness. It can free
    up capital to support strategic investments that drive value and create
    jobs. At the same time, interconnectedness among the world?s supply
    chains has made them more vulnerable to disruptions from natural
    disasters, political instability or terrorism. Rice?s presentation will
    explore how companies can take advantage of our global
    interconnectedness to find greater efficiencies, become more sustainable
    and rebuild our struggling world economy.

    ?Condoleezza Rice is a remarkable leader with a unique perspective on
    global events and how they shape our world today. We are honored to
    welcome her to JDA FOCUS 2012,? said JDA Software President and CEO
    Hamish Brewer
    . ?We look forward to hearing her views on our shared
    global challenges and the leadership and vision it takes to turn those
    to opportunities.?
