JDA Software Group, Inc., has announced its keynote speakers and customer presenters for JDA FocusConnect 2016, scheduled for November 7-9 at the new London Intercontinental Hotel at The O2 Arena in London, England.

More than 500 supply chain professionals from across the retail, manufacturing, wholesale distribution and logistics industries will gather at this regional user summit for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). Over the course of three days, representatives from more than 40 JDA customers will detail their supply chain transformation journeys. Session speakers include industry analysts and other supply chain thought leaders discussing the issues raised by today’s digital transformation. Intel and Starware are platinum sponsors of the conference. Agora Europe, Centiro, Cognizant and REPL Group are gold sponsors.

The theme of FocusConnect 2016 “Plan, Profit and Deliver” highlights the challenges companies face as they seek to balance the digital transformation with increased profitability.

“In today’s digital, connected world, it’s tempting to try to differentiate your business and win the sale based on offering incredible customer service at all costs,” said Franck Lheureux, regional vice president, EMEA, JDA. “Today, the most successful companies are planning for profitability from the earliest stages and transforming their supply chains to be more agile and nimble in delivering goods to customers. They don’t make customer promises they can’t keep; instead, they take a modern, data-driven, approach that leverages increased visibility across the entire supply chain and balances customer satisfaction versus margins on an ongoing basis.”

Attendees will benefit from the success stories of supply chain leaders including ALDI, ConAgra Foods, DHL, Energizer, E & J Gallo Winery, Nestle Purina, Philips, PepsiCo, Virgin Media, Wacom and Waitrose. In addition, FocusConnect 2016 will feature the following keynote speakers:

• Andy Clarke, Former President and Chief Executive Officer, Asda Stores Ltd: Andy Clarke is the former President and Chief Executive Officer of Asda Stores Ltd, the UK’s second-largest supermarket retailer. In his role, Clarke was committed to Asda’s promise to save customers money so they can live better. Clarke's career with Asda spanned almost 20 years, having originally joined the company from Morrisons in 1992 as Manager of the Edinburgh store before rising to the position of Retail Director. In 2000, he became Chief Operating Officer for Matalan, a position he held for two years before being appointed as Managing Director of Iceland. In 2005, Clarke re-joined Asda as Retail and Operations Director, becoming Chief Operating Officer two years later and CEO in May 2010.

He was listed as one of the top 100 influencers in technology by Wired magazine in 2015.
