September 25, 2014 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream, the market leader in Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) Management solutions, hosts the Supplier Governance Roundtable in Palo Alto, California on September 25th, 2014. The event will bring together thought leaders and business executives to exchange insights on the top supply chain issues, challenges, and opportunities facing the supply chain industry. Panelists at the roundtable, will discuss strategies to build a well governed, risk aware, and compliant organization.

Today’s business landscape is marked by unprecedented economic volatility, unpredictable market patterns, natural disasters, geopolitical risks, mounting regulatory pressures, and increasingly savvy and conscious consumers. Organizations must remain vigilant, as the volume, velocity, and variety of risks facing their business and its operations continue to evolve. More and more companies are expanding their ecosystems of partners and suppliers, and looking to outsource labor and operations as an essential and cost-effective manner to conduct business.  However, senior management must be aware and informed of the risks that come with vast, distributed, and global ecosystems of suppliers, vendors and third parties. In order to best manage their suppliers, understand supplier risks, and the consequences of non-compliance, organizations must adopt a single, unified supplier governance model. An automated supplier governance solution can provide organizations with a systematic and consistent approach to manage the entire supplier governance lifecycle, reduce redundancies, provide real-time insights on supplier information, and support management in making smart sourcing decisions.

The MetricStream Supplier Governance Roundtable will feature an esteemed panel of experts including Mike Bardos, Program Manager at Hewlett- Packard Company, Sadhana Deot, Director of Quality, Reliability & Regulations at Trimble Navigation Limited,  Dorian Cougias, Co-founder at Network Frontiers, Kristin Grauz, Vice President at Intertek; Laura Durkin, Managing Director at KMPG LLP, along with Keri Dawson, Vice President Industry Solutions and Advisory Services at MetricStream, and Sonal Sinha, Associate Vice President of Industry Solutions at MetricStream. The panel will share their views on the importance of establishing a unified supplier governance framework, which can minimize redundancies and drive more effective and efficient supplier governance processes. The session will also shed light on how to ensure product compliance, reduce supplier risks, and enhance your organization’s supplier governance program, based on insights and industry best practices. Participants at this event will gain an exclusive opportunity to meet and interact with executives and experts from various fields such as procurement, supply chain, and sustainability.
