Sourcing and vendor management (SVM) professionals in most organizations must envy their counterparts working on Formula One (F1) teams. Not only do they have a highly specified network, but they also get to rub shoulders with the glitterati while also extracting more from key suppliers, whether that's in terms of 24x7 team support or proactive network management. However, SVM pros on F1 teams still face the same challenges as their peers in other organizations: making sure that the network is reliable, always available, and delivers peak performance when needed. This report analyzes two tie-ups between F1 teams and telcos to understand their best practices for network support and how they help drive the best business outcomes.
