    • Are you struggling to improve supplier onboarding, collaboration and compliance because you can’t see the total supplier relationship across product lines, business units and regions?

      While employees strive for continuous improvement, no one can see the big picture because valuable supplier information is scattered across dozens or hundreds of ERP applications. Despite spending up to $1,000 on each supplier annual to manage supplier information across the enterprise, many employees spend too much time manually reconciling inaccurate, inconsistent and disconnected supplier information. This approach does not scale to support future growth goals.

      Are you responsible for supplier relationship management? Do you have multiple ERP systems? Has your company grown through acquisition? If you want to learn how to supercharge your supply chain applications with clean, consistent and connected supplier information, please join this webinar featuring supplier data experts from Cognizant and Informatica.

      Our panel of data experts will:
      •Reveal 3 pressing business challenges facing supplier relationship management executives

    • Managing Your IT Suppliers: How to Ensure You Get What You Pay For Managing Your IT Suppliers: How to Ensure You Get What You Pay For Erik Hille, Sr Principal Product Marketing Manager, CA Technologies Recorded: Nov 9 2012 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    • No doubt, IT suppliers are an essential part of your business. In fact, if one of their services “goes down”, it can significantly impact the services your IT organization provides to the business not to mention your internal credibility. With that being said, it is quite interesting to note that many organizations do little to manage these service obligations and instead rely on performance reports from IT suppliers. The issue with these ad hoc IT supplier reports is that they do not provide real-time information on performance levels and they do very little to guide IT suppliers on “proper” behavior.

      Join this webcast for a frank discussion about how you can effectively manage your outsourcers, collect penalties that are due, and proactively avoid issues that will affect both the Business and IT.

    • Third Party Supplier Security: The supply chain challenge Third Party Supplier Security: The supply chain challenge Steve Durbin, Managing Director, ISF Ltd Recorded: Feb 4 2015 2:00 pm UTC 48 mins
    • As supply chains become increasingly complex, and efficiency savings motivate companies to outsource business processes, service providers continue to be a primary vector for information security risks. In part this is because of the lack of usable, consistent standards for suppliers. Many suppliers are small and do not have the resources to adequately implement widely-accepted information security standards, leading to data breaches such as that of US retailer Target in Dec 2013. We also continue to see the mistaken belief that information risk is something others need to think about. This webcast will offer solutions to some of these challenges and also discuss the issue of more widespread education and communication of threats and how they might be better managed throughout the global supply chain.

    • Organisations across all sectors are dealing with a growing array of third party/vendor relationships. Even obscure supplier relationships can have significant impact on security, risk and compliance. The Target credit card breach is one example in which a heating and air conditioning supplier was the doorway in to a significant breach of a point of sale system and theft of credit card data.

      This 'Expert' webinar will address the following:-

      o Understand the growing array of third party relationships
      o The impact of third party relationships on security, risk and compliance
      o Elements of an effective, efficient, and agile vendor risk management process
      o How other areas of the organisation can leverage a common approach to third party risk management

      Attend this webinar if:-

      o You are concerned by the growing number of third party supplier relationships
      o You realise your risk and compliance exposure is growing because of these relationships
      o You need to be able to manage supplier risk but cannot recruit more staff to do so
      o You desire the need to know how to keep current in a dynamic environment of third party relationships

    • Identifying Key Suppliers Identifying Key Suppliers Steve Wicks, Chair BCI Partnership Working Group on Supply Chain Continuity Recorded: Mar 21 2012 10:00 am UTC 45 mins
    • Supply chain continuity is the hottest topic in BCM and driving a significant positive shift in corporate awareness of BCM. The BCI Partnership established a working group in 2011 to develop practitioner guidance on this topic following feedback from its annual supply chain resilience surveys. The group is chaired by Steve Wicks, who brings his own unique insight of being a BCM expert working in procurement at BP plc. In this webinar, Steve will be focusing on a key aspect of supply chain continuity - identifying your key suppliers – one that is often only defined in terms of “biggest spend”. Steve will show why this is completely inadequate, and share the findings of the study he has been leading, including feedback received from interviews with a number of corporations. A paper on the subject will be published in June.

    • MPLS: Sales Advice for the Cloud Era MPLS: Sales Advice for the Cloud Era Craig Galbraith Recorded: Aug 6 2015 4:40 pm UTC 4 mins
    • Just because cloud has come along, that doesn't mean there's no longer use for MPLS.

      Low-cost IP VPNs have improved, but performance can be inconsistent. MPLS is still important for performance-based applications on a wide-area network. And it’s often in demand in cloud infrastructures.

      In this short video, Channel Partners' Craig Galbraith explains the topics that you should broach when selling MPLS to customers who use a virtual private network (VPN) over the Internet – and those who already have an MPLS network but want to add services or switch suppliers.

    • Managing Hybrid Clouds from a Supplier and User Perspective Managing Hybrid Clouds from a Supplier and User Perspective Maurice van der Woude, General Director, Eurocloud Europe Recorded: Feb 16 2011 9:00 am UTC 35 mins
    • Noticing that the choice of a single cloud comes with business continuity risks, hybrid clouds are the answer to ensure that data and applications are always available. There is still a lot of confusion around this subject. Many see the use of hybrid clouds as a safety net for cloud computing as a whole, taking advantage of the best of multiple cloud worlds. But how should an organisation implement this, control it and what are the challenges ahead? In this presentation the answers to these questions will be given. Whether you are a supplier or a buyer, after this session you are ready to go on hybrid computing with all the knowledge you need.


      Mr. van der Woude is Vice Chairman of EuroCloud Netherlands and General Director of
      EuroCloud Europe. His principal occupation is strategic advisor at Personal Consult, a management consulting company where he has been working in the consultancy area for almost 20 years managing major changes in national and international organizations. Many assignments have a strong component where ICT (and departments) have to be related to the business, other assignments are to make organizations more efficient or help them with the development of short and long term strategy. Nowadays the focus is on Cloud computing (from supplier and user perspective) and turning businesses with their processes to this new business model.
