Implementation of YuniquePLM Cloud is Latest Addition to Alsico's Digital Workflow

TOLLAND, Ct., Oct. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Optimization of workflows, greater efficiency and insight into processes are essential ingredients to drive the speed, quality and agility needed for success in the clothing industry. For Alsico, this means outfitting the workforce with clothing that is functional, comfortable and safe, with the right fit and at the right price.

"We chose YuniquePLM Cloud to help reduce complexity and enhance the digitization of our workflow," said Vincent Siau, Alsico Northern Europe CEO. "We recognized the expertise Gerber and their team could bring in digitizing our processes to meet the needs of our customers. This will help us to enhance our quality, reduce errors, and reduce our environmental impact, which eventually will contribute to perfecting our performance based approach and circular solutions."

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
We all know that end users experience the Internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps – failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers' relationship to your business. Whether you’re decomposing an SOA monolith, or developing a new application cloud natively, it’s not a question of using microservices – not doing so will be a path to eventual b...
