Deloitte’s Game-Changing Analytics Platform Puts ‘Strategic’ Back into Sourcing

In this two-part series turned to paper, Pierre Mitchell discusses the need for a truly strategic supply chain sourcing platform built on a supply network design model rather than just the typical BOM-based sourcing workflows and low-level commodity sourcing efforts that use “empty” e-RFX tools. He details the full requirements for such a supply network-based platform in a four-part series (linked within this paper), but in Part 4, one of the trends highlighted included a pivot from such empty apps to content-enabled apps increasingly provided by large service providers that use cloud-based analytics and intelligence platforms as a way to deliver continuous insight and value. In that piece, he highlights Deloitte’s Global Sourcing Insights (GSI) solution as a prime example. This paper goes a step further and examines the solution as a whole.
