Western Digital Launching Innovative Data Storage Solutions in India

Western Digital Launching Innovative Data Storage Solutions in India

India is emerging as an important engineering center for the company Western Digital. The company launched the world's first 1 terabyte micro SD card earlier this year, which was entirely developed in India. India is a major development hub and the product segment is the fastest-growing market for us. In the years to come, it will play an important role from a market perspective. As the pace picks up on government programs such as Smart Cities the business segment is likely to grow faster. It is clear that India is not just about human capital and that element will play an important role in the growth of the company.

The organization has set up teams that consist entirely of college recruits within the first year to do end-to-end product development–something that would typically take an engineer for two years. This push for talent development is an important reason why most Western Digital's new products have a connection to India. The company works closely with the government to see how it can bring the smart city and surveillance initiatives in products from its global portfolio.

Western Digital, the largest company in the non-volatile storage market, has grown significantly through acquisitions, including HGST, which gave its dominance in the business segment, and SanDisk, which was the flash segment's largest company.
