The Transformation Story of Western Digital

The transformation of Western Digital to a Live Enterprise
Modernization of legacy enterprise resource planning (ERP) applications provides an opportunity for a technical upgrade as well as a transformation of the core business, according to IDC. In a report on ERP modernization, the global market intelligence firm highlights how Western Digital enhanced flexibility, scale and innovation capabilities by embarking on a strategic application modernization journey.

Transcending application modernization
Western Digital, one of the largest hard disk drive manufacturers and data storage companies in the world, partnered with Infosys to modernize core business operations with a cloud ERP solution that provided seamless upgrades and out-of-the-box functionalities. Infosys deployed Oracle ERP Cloud and leveraged Infosys Cobalt, an ecosystem of cloud services, solutions and platforms, to effect a business transformation.

Delivering benefits beyond the enterprise
The Infosys solution helped Western Digital respond to dynamic shifts in business and become a sentient enterprise. The holistic solution provided the global high technology manufacturer with a single source of truth enabled by master data governance, achieve faster time-to-market through workflow-driven new product introduction (NPI), reduced logistics costs, and empowered decision makers with global supply chain visibility and centralized costing.
