Lenovo Case Study

Dedicated to developing exceptionally engineered personal technology, Lenovo's global presence expanded dramatically when it acquired IBM's personal computing (PC) division in 2005. The acquisition set the stage for rapid organic growth: building on its dominant position in China, the company's revenue has since increased from US$13 billion in 2006 to US$21 billion in 2011. Lenovo worked with JDA to deploy a platform, via the Cloud, that could support the company’s e-commerce initiatives for its global customer base, and realized the following results:

  • Grew profits by more than 225 percent
  • Increased revenue by more than 100 percent
  • Reduced infrastructure costs by 40 percent on an annual basis
