Ironically when Dell, the company that built its success around supply chain management excellence, started the Data Center Solutions group to serve the “biggest of the big,” supply chain and procurement were just bit players.
I recently sat down with Chris Thompson who heads up the DCS supply chain and procurement organization and learned how this changed and the importance of his group in meeting the needs of this very unique customer set.
Some of the topics Chris tackles:
- How his group helps customers get to revenue faster.
- To what extent the DCS supply chain org is independent of Dell “normal” processes and procedures and to what extent it leverages them.
- How has Chris’ group affected traditional Dell supply chain practices.
