Abstract


There are about140,000,000SME in China, which play a unique role in theeconomy of China. Because of the large number and irregular management, theproblem of information management in these SME is quite outstanding. In theface of the global competition, most enterprises are hunger to improveoperational efficiency and through the comprehensive informationalization.There is a real need of information model and ideas which are fit in China, andthere is also an urgent need of software and corresponding business model.SaaS(Software as a Service, SaaS)is a new kind of software and servicedelivery. Currently, most of the domestic enterprises are suffering from lack ofcapital. It just can be solved by such Web-based software. However, there are alot of problems for SaaS software to be devoloped. In order to put out a new trainof thought, this paper will focus on how to combine the SaaS model and thedemand of the SMEs.At the same time, since our country joined the WTO formally in2002,globalization and competitiveness of the supply chain have been in reality.Enterprises need to face on more global competition. And the internet hasbecome a competitive tool for business. It has been a natural choice for the SaaSsoftware to use the internet-based supply chain coordination and the service-oriented architecture (SOA) technology.Based on the author’s practical explorations in the informationalization,"theSaaS-based third-party Agile-e-SCM" will be proposed in this thesis, which is acollaboration platform based on SaaS for the enterprise supply chain to share theinternal and external information, improve the efficiency of the supply chaincollaboration and reduce TCO of the supply chain. This model will reallyachieve on-demand enterprises to face the actual needs of SMEs.In the first and second chapters of this thesis initially, the problems and risksin the development of the SaaS are researched. And the third-party Agile-e-SCMis put forward as a new information mode fitting the need of domestic SMEs.Then the model and theory of the SaaS-based third-party Agile-e-SCM isestablished. The content, features, technology and challenges are set out in detail. In the third chapter, a TCO model of SaaS-based third-party Agile-e-SCM iscontructed. And based the TCO model, a way of the optimization of TCO ofsupply chain is puts forward to expain the conflict between the cost and themarket. Then a quantitative risk model is brough forward to measure SaaS risk inorder to bring decision-making methods for SaaS model applications.In the fourth chapter, a realistic game model and game analysismethodology for Agile-e-SCM implementation are established by using groupgame theory. Based on this game analysis of enterprise supply chain, it is provedthat Agile-e-SCM is a real trend for enterprise from the perspective ofmaximizing the enterprise benefits.In last chapter, three types of applications mode are designed. They are thepublic platform model, government-led model and main-chain model. As atypical model, the public platform model covers most risk of the SaaS model.Eabax Software Co. LTD has achieved commercial success, which is a good caseof the public platform modle. The government-led model can reduce the rish ofSaaS on the basis of government credibility that is in the power of localgovernment of China. For lowering the cost of risk, it is tremendous value for theMain-chain model to use of Agile-e-SCM platform quickly by using thedominant position of core enterprise. And the specific problems of these modelsneed to be further tested in commercial practice.The SaaS-based third-party Agile-e-SCM comes from the real needs ofinformationalization, which is a research up to date, to integrate business modeland practice. In order to succeed the mode, the advanced IT, the latest businessmanagement concept, the most potential business model and risk-taking businesspractice are needed. And there will be some new problems during thedevelopment. It will be a very valuable research field. The new technology andnew issues from the academic point are put out in this thesis. And they areanalyzed and researched by cases. Theory contribution and practical significanceare made by this thesis for the development, promotion and application of themodel.
