Thailand floods: Mother Nature defies the technology supply chain
The truth of current supply chains in information technology is that we've entered a world in which components are increasingly globally sourced. This can be advantageous in terms of costs and should be advantageous in terms of supply chain robustness via the benefits that come from multisourcing. When correctly balanced, this yields an optimal cost/risk tradeoff — with reductions in both when compared to a local sourcing model. But sometimes even the most robust chains are damaged, as Mother Nature has so defiantly proven recently in Thailand.
