2019 Winner Profile

Arrow Electronics

Project Description:
Arrow provides, among other services, IT asset disposition services. In 2018 Arrow erased approximately 1.8 million assets; every device that contains data needs to be guaranteed to be processed according to customers' requirements. This project involved moving the existing client erasure system to the cloud and tightly integrating it with the shop floor system to improve erasure control. This removed the possibility for manual errors and dramatically expedited the process. This project was the first enterprise-level application deployed in the cloud for Arrow Services. The manual process took an average of six minutes to start the erasure process. The automated system reduced the time by four minutes per asset on approximately 5,000 assets per day.
