Siltronic stands alone
As one of the most recognized global leaders in the design and manufacture of hyperpure silicon wafers, Germany-based Siltronic AG occupies a critical position in the global semiconductor supply chain. With the production of every single wafer, a large amount of data is generated throughout Siltronic’s value chain processes. A resilient IT infrastructure backbone as well as modern IT security technologies are crucial for Siltronic.
Siltronic faced a massive undertaking in establishing its standalone IT environment, process landscape and operating model at speed. It needed to manage the carve-out along with major IT transformation activities while maintaining operational efficiency, optimizing IT costs, and cause as little business disruption as possible to its critical manufacturing operations.
Additionally, the IT transformation needed to ensure the company was well prepared to support its future business growth with modern IT capabilities, such as hybrid cloud environment. This included the protection of Siltronic’s intellectual property—arguably the most valuable part of its business—with state-of-the-art security and data protection.
