How Western Digital Built a Fully Scalable Big Data Platform

JuneAn Lanigan, Global Head of Enterprise Data Management, for Western Digital shares how Western Digital built a fully scalable big data platform and ecosystem. In this video, JuneAn explains the team’s vision of creating a “DNA” for the HDD to allow any stakeholder to understand everything about the drive at any given time. For the team, it went beyond simply building a data lake, but deriving real insights from the integrated view. She further explains that building a product “DNA” was one step in their overall strategy to “Futureproof” Western Digital’s data by building a platform that met both the needs of the business today, while also ensuring it was capable of handling future industry strategies, such as Industry 4.0 and Smart Factories.
