Command and control from the cloud
Manufacturing connected home appliances for families around the world takes a huge amount of data. To help manage it all, Whirlpool Corporation turned to IBM Cloud. Whirlpool will be using the cloud to manage critical enterprise applications including resource planning, customer relationship management and warehouse operations. These systems manage critical functions and gather information from Whirlpool facilities worldwide. Although many companies have just started to migrate to the cloud, Whirlpool is using the cloud for mission-critical functions, which will give it more flexibility to scale and innovate.
