Today, Intel published its 2016-2017 Intel IT Annual Performance Report, which showcases how innovative use of predictive analytics and machine learning is helping the company make better products, faster; improve its supply chain and make its marketing and sales efforts more effective. The case studies in this year’s report demonstrate Intel IT is leading the company’s digital transformation – the same transformation Intel technology makes possible for customers around the world.
According to IDC, 70 percent of Global 2000 CEOs are building corporate strategies around digital transformation to manage unprecedented technological and economic disruption. Intel CIO Paula Tolliver explains that Intel is leading by example.
“At Intel, IT not only contributes to the productivity and operational efficiency and effectiveness of the company, it also advances the corporate strategy,” said Tolliver. “Our annual report demonstrates that Intel IT continues to raise the bar in driving innovation, like machine learning and predictive analytics, that helps accelerate growth opportunities for Intel.”
Here are some notable results:
- $656 million in business value derived by rolling out predictive analytics across Intel’s sales, supply chain, factory and manufacturing operations worldwide.
- An estimated $1 million per year in operational savings due to the rollout of 30,000 high-density disaggregated servers dedicated to product design, cutting refresh costs by as much as 65 percent.
- A 39 week improvement in bringing Intel products to market via a machine-learning platform that uncovers potential bugs during the design phase of a product before it goes into development.
- 50,000 hours that employees saved by using the Intel® Unite™ solution to quickly start and connect to conference room meetings.
