NET(net) Launches WIN(win)™

New SaaS Platform for IT Strategic Sourcing and Strategic Supplier Management

GEORGETOWN, Cayman Islands, Jan. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- NET(net), the world's leading provider of comprehensive IT Investment Optimization Services, has announced the launch of WIN(win)™, the world's only fully Technology Enabled Business Process-as-a-Service (TEBPaaS) for Strategic Sourcing and Strategic Supplier Management.  WIN(win) is generally available via a SaaS subscription or as part of a Managed Services consulting engagement powered by NET(net).  The 1.0 release of WIN(win) provides a Strategic Supplier Management portal that enables clients to strategically manage the performance of supplier agreements, investments and relationships, and also provides a Strategic Sourcing portal that creates an IT marketplace and exchange for clients to find suppliers that have the capabilities they need, and for suppliers to find qualified buyers who are looking for solutions that match their offerings.

NET(net) Founder, Owner, Chairman, and Chief Services Architect, Steven C. Zolman, says, "The Market for buying and selling IT products and services is experiencing new challenges.  With the explosion of new technologies, suppliers and solutions, sourcing the right IT supplier can seem like you're swimming alone in an ocean of new and changing options.  What was on premise yesterday is Cloud today.  What was 'standard corporate issue' has become 'bring your own device'.  So while technology becomes more virtualized, the need to make better buying decisions and to get value from those investments is not.  In order to take full advantage of the enormous amount of market disruption that has occurred, our clients must find the suppliers that offer high value and low cost solutions, and they can use the WIN(win) Strategic Sourcing portal to find, vet, and contract with the suppliers that meet their needs.  Zolman continues, "Getting a great deal from your supplier sounds great, but if the supplier doesn't deliver, the euphoria may be short lived.  Clients continue to be wildly dissatisfied with supplier performance, rating a full 89% of their suppliers as average or below. After years of study on this issue, we believe the missing ingredient is Strategic Supplier Management.  The Business Case to leverage the WIN(win) TEBPaaS to perform Strategic Supplier Management is very strong.  By proactively managing the agreement, the investment, and the relationship with their supplier, on average, our clients realize 34% more value and benefits, and avoid a 22% increase in cost and risk.  That represents a 56% overall improvement!"

NET(net) President and CEO, Kellsey D. Le, says "The launch of the WIN(win) platform complements NET(net)'s IT Investment Optimization Services and enables greater client collaboration.  This unique combination also delivers greater value to the market. The IT buyer markets are all in transition, which thrusts Strategic Sourcing and Strategic Supplier Management to the forefront.  The WIN(win) platform is available to be fully leveraged to source the right IT partner in a marketplace and exchange portal fully enabled with trusted and private peer networking.  In addition, companies will able to view and proactively manage the key Service Level Agreements (SLAs), Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), and other tasks, alerts, events and milestone items for new and existing agreements, investments, and relationships in an executive dashboard to ensure intended business benefit & value is realized and risk & cost is mitigated."

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
