Internet infrastructure provider Internap is making improvements to its internal supply chain over the next few years.
With its network of infrastructure spread all over the world sending and receiving information 24 hours a day and 365 days a year, the Internet may be the most complex supply chain devised by mankind. Since 1996, Atlanta-based Internap has been helping its customers around the world fit into the Internet’s global supply chain with a range of high-performance Internet infrastructure services, from cloud to colocation, that allow these organizations to connect to end-users with the greatest efficiency possible. Many of Internap’s customers are in industries – such as ecommerce, ad tech and online gaming, among others – that require the speed and reliability to process massive amounts of data in real time and the scalability to quickly and easily adapt to changing business and end user demands.
It’s no surprise, then, that Internap is acutely aware of the necessity for an optimized internal supply chain to turn up new capacity on demand. Internap has embarked on a journey to become a more dynamic and centralized procurement organization. As Senior Director of Procurement Adam Crowe explains, Internap has taken a long, hard look at its internal processes and found opportunities to streamline supply chain operations and better serve customers. “Over the past year, we’ve been working to fully integrate the supply chain at Internap,” Crowe says.
