Western Digital has deployed Oracle Cloud to modernize its business processes as part of its digital transformation.
The company selected Oracle Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Cloud in May, 2016 to bring together the core business systems of three companies – Western Digital, SanDisk and HGST.
Western Digital has combined numerous applications, reduced approval times by 70 percent, rationalized suppliers by 50 percent and improved acquisition agility on a global scale.
After acquiring SanDisk and HGST, Western Digital faced the challenge of rationalizing three Fortune 500-size on-premises ERP systems.
Oracle ERP Cloud allowed Western Digital to extend its on-premises applications to the cloud and establish a modern business platform.
Steve Phillpott, CIO at Western Digital, said: “Oracle Cloud enabled us to consolidate applications, automate key financial workflows and radically improve productivity.”
Oracle enabled Western Digital to avoid massive file download times and provide manual analysis to its employees.
Rondy Ng, senior vice president, Oracle Applications Development, said Oracle ERP Cloud will support Western Digital to continually take advantage of the latest innovations to gain a competitive advantage.
