COLUMBUS, OH--(Marketwire - June 24, 2009) - Sterling Commerce, an AT&T Inc (NYSE: T) company, today announced it has been named to the 2009 Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100. The annual listing by Supply & Demand Chain Executive honors companies that provide solutions and services that are assisting in the transformation of supply chain management. Sterling Commerce was recognized for its leading solutions that help companies optimize and transform their business collaboration network -- the ecosystem of customers, partners and suppliers with whom they do business.

"In today's economy, the transformation of a company's business collaboration network to optimize effective connection, communication and collaboration across the entire supply chain is paramount to survive the downturn and, more importantly, to emerge from it ahead of competitors," said Richard Douglass, manufacturing and logistics industry executive at Sterling Commerce. "We are excited to be named to the Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100 for helping our customers overcome economic challenges today and moving forward."

"This year, the Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100 recognizes supply chain solution and service providers that are helping their customers and clients both respond to the downturn and, more importantly, position themselves for growth ahead," said Andrew K.
