Innovating for Tomorrow: MRO Supply-Chain-as-a-Service

Outsourcing has been stigmatized as being all about labor arbitrage – shifting the work (whether it’s procurement, payroll, customer service) to another party, usually in another part of the world where it can be done cheaper. While outsourcing MRO procurement is a good start to centralize this critical, yet non-core function, it’s really just the beginning of the journey to a more connected, mutually beneficial approach.

The evolution towards the as-a-service model blends people and technology to deliver true value. SDI’s Kurt Meiers takes us through the evolution of procurement and sourcing to this as-a-service model, outlining the drivers, enablers and obstacles, and how this new model is bringing agility and reliability to MRO.

Success Story

SDI is an MRO integrator and partner that really helps drive categorization and a best practice approach.

Data standardization is part of Google’s new initiative to help people find relevant datasets.  With a recent study from Data Science Central, it’s estimated that data scientists spend 60% of their time preparing data for analysis, rather than performing the analysis itself.  Therefore, the goal of this schema is to drive standardization so that more time can be spent analyzing it.
