Challenges

Seagate R&D performed rigorous testing on several media substrates before they were incorporated into the disk drive. The interim and final test results are logged in multiple databases and documents. The company faced challenges with –

  • Delays and high resource costs due to manual consolidation of test data by engineers
  • Test data is difficult to locate as it is stored in different locations in complex hierarchies
  • Test reports by engineers were inconsistent with different formats

Solution

  • Data Virtualization deployed to automate search and extraction of data from test documents
  • Extracted data is combined with calibration data in databases
  • Unified view of test data fed to front end application

Benefits

  • Faster analysis of test results
  • Reduced resource costs in consolidation of reports
  • Minimized replication of test data
