Webinar: Using PLM to Enable True & Enterprise - Wide Business Transformation
Western Digital, through significant expansion and acquisition, has grown from a $38M turn-around to a $15B market leader in digital storage.
This level of growth by acquisition can place severe strains on the people, processes and technology around product data.
Historically, the company would take a tactical "get-it-done" mentality to growth, home-growing solutions to solve issues as and when they arose.
While it is hard to argue with the business success, this approach has become both un-scalable and prone to highly negative events.
In this webinar Dave Davison will share lessons from Western Digital's ongoing PLM implementation including:
About the Speaker:
- The common pitfalls of an implementation and how can these be mitigated
- Developing PLM as an operational business practice and not as an IT deployment project
- Making PLM implementable for a global company with operations across the US, Asia and Europe
- Balancing the 3 requirements of PLM success – process, people and technology
