SAP: Lenovo's 'Disciplined' Supply Chain Drives Global Leadership
By: Forbes February 15, 2017
"Lenovo's been the number one PC company for over three years now," says Gerry Smith, an executive vice president at Lenovo and president of its Data Center Group, in a recent video.
In fact, Lenovo's 2015 PC sales represented about 20 percent of total market share according to Gartner.
That's a pretty remarkable accomplishment for a company that The Wall Street Journal, described, "as recently as 2005 . . . was a little-known computer maker that sold only in China."
But a lot has changed in the past 10 years or so - especially in Lenovo's now worldwide supply chain.
These days, Lenovo has operations in 60 countries, customers around the planet, and it relies on a revamped supply chain driven by such thoroughly modern imperatives as sustainability, product security, real-time planning, and customer centricity.
