Seagate Technology is the world's leading manufacturer of hard disc drives, with annual revenues of $7.6 billion and 44,000 employees in seven countries worldwide. To manage its farflung workforce more efficiently and cost-effectively, the company wanted to replace a patchwork of HR systems with a single streamlined data hub.
