II. 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 enhance its supply chain operations. The first wave will be concentrated to South East Asia and the implementation will be deployed by local 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. Level 3 Asia Pacific University of Technology and Innovation Jan 2014

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
