Quantum Corporation is a proven global expert in data protection and big
data management that provides a unique combination of intelligent
storage solutions and unmatched value for traditional, virtual, and
cloud environments. These solutions include DXi®-Series disk-based
deduplication and replication systems for fast backup and restore,
Scalar® tape automation products for disaster recovery and long-term
data retention, StorNext® data management software and appliances for
high-performance file sharing and archiving, and vmPRO™ solutions for
protecting virtual machine data.
To accelerate product innovation and time to market for new storage products and upgrades, Quantum wished to upgrade its lifecycle management applications for streamlined engineering, production, and compliance processes, as well as enhanced collaboration with employees and partners. Quantum also looked to reduce development and production costs, improve information accessibility, and streamline compliance reporting.
After reviewing various vendors, Quantum implemented Oracle’s Agile product lifecycle management applications and granted access to approximately 1,500 users. With the implementation, Quantum reduced engineering and production change time from weeks to days or hours. The company also reduced costs by minimizing order cancellations or inventory issues as well as enhancing employee and partner collaboration for engineering and manufacturing processes. Finally, Quantum used Agile Product Governance and Compliance to respond to customer and governmental reporting requirements and to maintain an information library.
A word from Quantum Corporation
“Oracle Agile product lifecycle management applications enable us to collaborate and communicate globally with employees and partners. With the implementation, we acquired enhanced information-sharing capabilities to accelerate time to market, improve reporting capabilities, and reduce costs.” – Daniel Hartley, Product Lifecycle Management Applications Manager, Quantum Corporation
