Inphi delivers high-speed connectivity solutions to move data between and inside data centers. Inphi’s end-to-end data transport platform delivers high signal integrity at leading-edge data speeds, addressing performance and bandwidth bottlenecks in networks, from fiber to memory.
To move data internally, Inphi relies on several different systems. Sales and quality teams work in Salesforce; procurement, planning, and financial departments use Oracle eBusiness Suite (EBS); and the engineering team manages the design process in Autodesk Vault. Prior to embarking on an integration project, Autodesk PLM 360 had been brought on board to begin enabling change management across departments. Although each team was using its tools to the fullest, the lack of communication between systems made it necessary for staff members in multiple departments to spend lots of time manually searching for the data they needed.
“Our teams needed more visibility. The data resided in various systems and it created a lot of extra legwork to look up information and help people get what they needed in a timely fashion.” – Robb Johnson, Director of Technology, Inphi Corporation
Return merchandise authorizations (RMAs), for example, were initially entered in Salesforce and ultimately approved in Autodesk PLM 360, but there was no way to track an RMA throughout its lifecycle, so people had to communicate with other departments for updates. Bills of materials (BOMs) were stored on spreadsheets that were emailed around and manually uploaded into Oracle EBS. Because the BOMs weren’t connected with Autodesk Vault, engineers had to spend a significant amount of time preparing for design reviews by manually comparing their Vault designs to the BOM spreadsheets.
