Nutanix designs and sells an Enterprise Cloud Platform that natively converges compute, virtualization, and storage into a resilient, softwaredefined solution. Nutanix selected Arena to help address these key areas:
- Revision control
- Inefficiencies with change order management
- Expensive scrap and rework problems based on building products to the wrong revision
David Sangster is the Chief Operating Officer at Nutanix and manages the team responsible for fulfillment, logistics, new product introduction, and launching product into volume production. With dozens of active suppliers, including contract manufacturers, distributors, and key technology partners, David has had to deal with issues that stem from a high frequency of changes.
“It’s embarrassing to admit, but we had a number of instances where the suppliers built the wrong version of the product. It was ‘rev A’ all right, but the wrong ‘rev A’.”
