Semiconductor manufacturer using integration solution to upgrade business architecture

Palo Alto, CA  September 13, 2002  Semiconductor company LSI is set to use an integration solution from TIBCO Software to upgrade its business architecture.

LSI will use TIBCO's technology to integrate and automate communications between systems and applications across its entire business infrastructure. The integration technology will also enable the secure exchange of documents over the Internet, with the goal of allowing LSI to communicate more efficiently with its supply chain and customers.

By tying together its SAP, Siebel and legacy planning systems with the integration solution, LSI is aiming to create a new business process to allow improved visibility of existing inventory.

"LSI Logic needed a business systems solution that would pull together and streamline their entire infrastructure, while also giving them flexibility for future growth," said Raj Mashruwala, TIBCO's chief operating officer.

Commenting on the integration project, Bruce Decock, LSI vice president and chief information officer, said that the company was looking for a "one-stop shop" that could overhaul the LSI's entire business architecture, and do so utilizing the company's existing technology investments.

"TIBCO's solution fits the bill perfectly," Decock said. "TIBCO was able to implement its B2B solution within four weeks, one full week before our target date. The solution went into production immediately, providing real-time connectivity between our systems and our key business partners."

LSI, headquartered in Milpitas, Calif., designs and manufactures communications, consumer and storage semiconductors for applications that access, interconnect and store data, voice and video.
