Project Description:
Over the past two years, Xylem Inc., a water technology provider, has built Xylem ONE, a modernized IT platform that harnesses the power of disruptive technologies, including social, mobile, analytics, cloud, and IoT to drive customer engagement, operating efficiency and growth. ONE is a digital business platform tailored to the company's front office, back office and infrastructure. The platform is aimed at helping Xylem enable its global staff to work together as ONE team to become the definitive market leader in water — the first place customers turn for answers to their water issues. The development of ONE began in 2015 to provide a suite of standard processes and technology-enabled capabilities to achieve Xylem's three-point strategy: accelerate profitable growth; build a culture of continuous improvement; and cultivate leadership, talent development and collaboration.
