MatrixOne Solutions Bring a New Level of Communication and Collaboration to Agilent TechnologiesCoordinate New Product Innovation and Improve Communications with Customers and Partners (October 29, 2001)
Agilent will create an Internet-enabled value chain backbone based on MatrixOne's eMatrix platform and Value Chain Portfolio of applications, an integrated set of best practice business applications that provides a secure way to integrate business processes, collaborate and share intellectual capital with partners and customers over the Internet. This information backbone will allow Agilent to bring new products to market more efficiently.
Agilent has employees and facilities in more than 40 countries to serve market-leading customers in over 120 countries. Major product development and manufacturing sites are located in the United States, China, Germany, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia and the United Kingdom. Coordination between Agilent's global sites and strategic partners is critical to meeting the company's goal of enabling its customers to speed their time to market and to achieve volume production and high-quality, precision manufacturing.
"Today, the entry level requirements for success for the internationalized electronics industry marketplace must include effective interaction among globally distributed design and engineering resources," said Jack Maynard, Aberdeen Group research director for collaborative enterprise solutions. "It will be this vital collaboration between dispersed product development resources that will provide a new level of competitive advantage. Moreover, the collaborative capabilities, such as MatrixOne's ability to broadly incorporate vast amounts of enterprise data from ERP, supply chain, project management, CAD/CAM, PDM, and legacy data systems, will bring incremental value to sizeable corporate IT investments. Using the eMatrix collaboration and integration framework, Agilent's employees are able to access valuable corporate information across multiple disparate systems to add value to their product development process; accumulate in-depth corporate knowledge for reuse; and ultimately establish a more sustainable competitive advantage based on product superiority."
