The migration of critical SAP applications ic claimed to allow dealers to meet peak sales demands and minimise disruption.
IBM Services claims that since adopting IBM Cloud, Mitsubishi has seen an 80% drop in the shutdown time required to refresh SAP test data, resulting in minimal business disruption to staff and dealers.
The company also claims less resources are required to build application clones, which are necessary to test new systems and by running development, testing and production environments on IBM Cloud, it is easier for Mitsubishi to get new services up and running for their staff and dealers.
“Moving to IBM Cloud provided operational efficiencies and cost savings in the 22 – 31% range. In addition, running all our core systems on one platform provides seamless management, delivering more IT resources and enhanced security.”
IBM Services managed the entire SAP migration, including enterprise resource planning, enterprise warehouse and CRM applications, over to IBM Cloud SAP-certified infrastructure.
Customised to Mitsubishi’s specific workload requirements, IBM Services says the server is configured down to the bare metal including CPU, RAM, storage and more, and was online again in hours.
“IBM’s deep industry expertise and more than 30-year relationship with Mitsubishi Motors in Australia enabled us to simplify how Mitsubishi has moved critical workloads to the cloud, delivering a solution that was sized properly and configured to their particular business requirements,” said Darryl Crittenden, Project Delivery, IBM Services.
“Mitsubishi now has a scalable cloud solution in place to keep up with market demand and enable delivery of new services to the business during peak times with minimal disruption.”
