Companies in the high-tech industry have multi-tiered supply networks comprising component and board suppliers, contract manufacturers, logistics partners, and other service providers. Since supplier data is often fragmented and inconsistent, enterprises have limited visibility of the structure, relationships, and capabilities of the supply base.

Leading high-tech enterprises understand the business value of effectively managing supplier master information and supplier lifecycles. This session presents a use-case to model and govern a multi-tiered supplier network for a high-tech OEM using Oracle Supplier Management.
