"ENOVIA MatrixOne's Synchronicity solutions have already improved our organization's ability to manage our product data and engineering processes. However, due to the unique insight and understanding that the team had of Agere's business and how our engineers work, we were able to collaborate and find additional ways to improve the efficiency and success of our organization," said Joe Tanenbaum, senior systems engineer - IT Design Tools Team Leader, Agere Systems.
Chief among the improvements are the automation of administrative tasks, improved data integrity preservation, centralized management for greater security and uniform support and training.
