November 10, 2008 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream Inc., the market leader in enterprise-wide Governance, Risk, Compliance (GRC) and Quality Management solutions, today announced that it is hosting a complimentary webinar titled "Performance Challenges in Complex Demand and Supply Chains: How to Manage Risks and Operational Compliance” on Thursday, November 13, 2008 at 11:00am Pacific (2:00pm Eastern).

An extended enterprise adds several dimensions of complexity and risk to corporations in a wide array of verticals including Manufacturing, High Tech, Food Services, Life Sciences and Energy. Uncertainties can arise due to several reasons including outsourcing, globalization, local and country legislations, currency fluctuations, vendor quality, franchisee operations, and natural and man made disasters. These interruptions, when they happen, should be addressed as quickly and efficiently through resiliency of the supply and demand chains to ensure that business performance goals are met.

This webinar will outline a strategic approach to risk management, operational compliance and quality management to address these challenges that many forward-looking businesses are adopting by leveraging enterprise GRC architecture. This approach enables enterprises to aggregate data and information from disparate sources in the extended enterprise, conduct scenario planning and “what if” analysis and make business decisions to maximize profitability and shareholder value.

Specific topics to be covered include:

  • Impact of a distributed supply chain and demand chain
  • Demands caused by outsourcing and globalization
  • How to best manage multiple risks including supply chain risk, financial risk and geo political risk
  • Business continuity planning
  • Impacts of local legislation and mandates
  • Vendor and supplier management

This webcast will feature John HagertyVice President and Research Fellow, AMR Research. Mr. Hagerty brings more than 25 years of experience in enterprise applications, performance management, and compliance. He is responsible for leading AMR Research's analysis on strategies, practices, and trends driving governance, risk, and compliance (GRC), business intelligence (BI), and performance management (PM) initiatives in corporations worldwide.

Mr. Hagerty will be joined by Gaurav Kapoor, Chief Financial Officer and General Manager at MetricStream.
