IBM Moves Sourcing Office Closer to the Source
IBM may have sold a big chunk of its business, the laptop business, to Chinese
company Lenovo, but that doesn't mean Big Blue's balance of trade is off-kilter.
Like any good Fortune 10 company, IBM buys billions worth of goods every year
from China. And like any good company with its supply chain act together, IBM
is inching closer to the source, moving
its global procurement office
from the mean streets of New York to the exotic
avenues of Southern China.
Microsoft, which has a pretty rippin' supply chain of its own, is now moving
aggressively into the supply chain software market with Dynamics. The only problem
is figuring out which of the four supply chain solutions to go with!
