Scottsdale, Ariz. - April 3, 2003 - JDA Software Group, Inc. will preview next generation solutions and infrastructure advancements in JDA Portfolio® at the Global Retail Technology Forum on 8-10 April 2003 in Paris. In addition to leading a seminar and participating in a panel, JDA representatives will demonstrate an overview of JDA Portfolio 2003.5, the second major synchronized release of its comprehensive collection of products, at stand number 11. Enabling clients to achieve huge efficiency boosts from connected business processes and workflows, Portfolio 2003.5 delivers integration among JDA’s acquired and internally developed applications as well as with third party software.

“Since last year’s conference, we’ve achieved significant milestones integrating JDA Portfolio software and processes to maximize our clients’ operational productivity and agility,” commented Andrew Blatherwick, vice president, Europe, Middle East and Africa operations. “This conference is an excellent opportunity to reconnect with several current clients along with other top IT decision-makers from major regional and global retailers,” added Blatherwick.

JDA to Unveil Path to Customer Buying Preferences at Conference Seminar

On Thursday, 10 April, Julia Smith, a vice president within JDA’s EMEA office, will lead a seminar, “Customers Uncovered: Bottled Beer Buying Behaviour in Boulogne, Birmingham and Berlin.” This seminar will review how retailers can employ next generation technology to uncover hidden buying patterns and predictive information through practices such as channel clustering, demand planning, seasonal sales, size profiling and price optimization. Smith will discuss how retailers can realize increased sales and reduced inventory by delving into detailed information on customer preference for products, price points and brands.

JDA will provide more detail on its Portfolio Business Intelligence products, including the JDA Intellect™ suite that features both pre-packaged, ready-to-use solutions as well as customizable decision support applications.

JDA Joins Panel Discussing Measuring the Value of IT

Smith will also join the Marketplace Analysis Panel along with a representative from JDA business partner, Manhattan Associates, and from SAP to discuss an alternative measure to return on investment (ROI): return on opportunity (ROO).

“While ROI can help a company quantify the financial implications of a technology investment, many companies find it challenging to quickly calculate. Plus they bemoan the fact that ROI only takes into consideration the project at hand,” comments Smith. “ROO analysis enables companies to consider the broad reaching value that the new technology may have to support a company’s overall growth and success.”

The panel will take place on Thursday, 10 April. For more details on JDA Portfolio products and services or to schedule an appointment for the show, stop by JDA’s stand #11 at GRTF or call +44 (0) 1959 491234.
