Here are some highlights. 2

Key Learnings Key lessons the U.S. Army learned when implementing new solutions: • A single enterprise architecture maximizes common processes and provides visibility in supply chain and financial analysis • Never underestimate the amount of organizational resistance • Align the organization, jobs, and incentives to the newly designed process and metrics • Invest significantly in data quality • Establish a strong governance structure • Approach the program as a business initiative • Use proof-of-value engagements to solve business problems and to evaluate/exploit new technology 5
  6. 6. From Food to Fork Multiple federal agencies within the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) administer domestic and international food and nutrition programs. To ensure all needs are met, the USDA implemented a Web-based SCM system (WBSCM) built on software from SAP. WBSCM supports more than 8,300 registered users – 95% of whom are external to the federal government. The easy-to-use interface supports users’ ability to monitor, plan, and manage their own food commodity deliveries and inventory. 6
  7. 7. CDC Stays on Track The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) operates the largest and most complex vaccine supply chain in the United States. Built on software from SAP, its Vaccine Tracking System (VTrckS) connects all of the components of its complex supply chain for the Vaccines for Children program and provides standardization and automation to drive efficiencies.   The CDC’s Vaccine Tracking System (VTrckS) is built on SAP. 7

Three Rs Needed for Deployment Deploying SCM software requires the three Rs: Having the right people at the right place at the right time. • Engaging the right stakeholders throughout the project lifecycle, particularly the development phase • Identifying technology infrastructure requirements upfront to exchange business transaction data to internal and external stakeholders • Changing the labels in the user interface resulting in overall better end-use experience and adoption 8
  9. 9. New Zealand’s Largest Merger On a quest to become the most livable city in the world, Auckland, New Zealand’s largest and fastest growing city, had to put in place a platform from SAP to service its 8,000 staff.
