Operational Risk Management
Supply chains are tightly syncronised, constantly active and involve large numbers of participants. Disruption at any point will impact the entire supply chain. As a result, the management of these operations is a crucial activity and the ability to respond swiftly to disruption can have a material impact on the stock price of the corporation concerned.
Recent developments in information technology have made the connection, capture and analysis of data much easier. In many organisations data is captured by a large number of different systems, but any advantages that might be gained from a shared view of this are few and far between.
This is not simply a case of systems integration; it is more one of 'understanding' and applying the relevant meaning or 'context'. Linking it together and applying the necessary context enables the exploitation of the real value of this data. The resulting information can then be shared across the organisation in ways not previously considered.
Natural disasters, accidents or deliberate action at a critical point in any supply chain can bring it to a halt.
Virtual-Partners have the expertise and track record to help you understand the potential threats and how the risks can be reduced.
