Apr 01, 2005
Agile Software Corporation has announced that Hitachi Global Storage Technologies (Hitachi GST), a worldwide leader in hard disk drives, has successfully implemented Agile PLM solutions to accelerate new product introductions, compress product change cycle times, reduce costs, and improve quality across its product portfolio.
The implementation involved the consolidation of legacy data into a single system and the integration of Agile to multiple CAD systems, with hundreds of users, split between the United States and Japan.
"We were faced with the dilemma of having to consolidate our various legacy systems, data and drawings in just a few short months, and Agile was clearly the best option," said Ranga Jayaraman, vice president of information technology, Hitachi GST. "We are pleased that we were able to go live so quickly with Agile, and we are already discussing follow-up projects."
