Irvine, Calif., Sept. 23, 1999 - Western Digital Corporation announced that they have received the "1999 Best Practices in Data Warehousing" award in the analytical applications category from The Data Warehousing Institute. The Best Practices in Data Warehousing awards were established in 1997, and according to The Data Warehousing Institute, "This competition provides thousands of practitioners with the best practices they can follow as data warehousing transitions from an early adoption implementation strategy to one of mass proliferation. The winners clearly demonstrated that their data warehouse projects: (1) are truly innovative solutions to problems commonly faced by data warehousing; (2) are practices that can be followed by others; and (3) resulted in large, measurable impacts on the business success of their organizations.

KPMG Consulting nominated Western Digital for the award based on the development of the company's quality information system (QIS), which serves as a single information repository and captures product information from multiple sources at multiple points in the life cycle of a hard drive.
