MRO Services For IT

Meet Mara.
CIO for a pharmaceutical manufacturer.

  • 25 years experience in systems analysis and IT infrastructure.
  • After being with the company for a little over 18 months, Mara suddenly finds herself overseeing a project to move from Maximo to SAP as their ERP system.
  • She has ZERO visibility into the data for indirect materials and lab supplies.
  • On top of it all, she has only three months and a limited budget to implement a system that integrates with SAP to manage the indirect supply chain.
  • Coupled with overseeing the IT infrastructure needs of their plants, Mara’s stress levels are running pretty high.

What Mara Needs.

  • Visibility into spend data for MRO, lab supplies, and other indirect materials.
  • A way to aggregate that spend to identify savings opportunities so procurement can purchase more effectively.
  • Integration into SAP.
  • A seamless transition in 3 months or less.

Solutions to Deliver Results for Mara.

  • SDI Data Capture and Master Data Management.

Success Story

Our former solution provider was not independent; they were a supplier of parts. It's not the best thing to have a supplier be your MRO outsourcing provider. With SDI, we have a truly independent sourcing agent looking after our best interests.

SDI at Work

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.
