  1. The Scenario (A Case Study)

Healthy Living Pte. Ltd. (HL) is one of the leading nutrition, health and wellness multinational companies, based in Singapore with its global IT shared services known as Global IT Services (GITS) located in Malaysia has embarked on a new project to its enhance supply chain operations. The first wave will be concentrated to South East Asia and the implementation will be deployed by markets.  

At present, markets located throughout South East Asia are using locally developed application to record supply chain management activities information. The first-level support (L1) is being rendered by local IT and second level (L2) is supported by the local application vendor. Previously the cost for software support maintenance was managed locally within each market which has resulted high in IT cost for both capital and operating expenses. Unfortunately every market provides similar support framework which has created duplication among markets within the South East Asia Region due to decentralisation of systems being used. Thus by implementing this project, significant contribution such as reduction in capital/operating expenses, centralized support from GITS, global governance and many more value added are gained. Please refer to section VII, Table 1 for the list of departments directly and indirectly involves in this project.
