Automobile production from the cloud
July 09, 2011
The globally active automobile supplier Magna commissions T-Systems with the operation and the updating of its IT systems, applications and networks.
From now on Magna will be getting its applications “from the cloud”. With T-Systems’ dynamic cloud services Magna can quickly book or cancel IT resources for its systems at all locations around the world as required, meaning that the automotive supplier will only use and pay for what it actually needs.
From its Vienna T-Center, T-Systems operates around the world 80 units of Magna’s Exterior & Interior division, using uniform standards and virtual environments. To achieve this, the Deutsche Telekom subsidiary has simplified and reduced a variety of different system landscapes and SAP environments as well as various different database combinations and service level agreements of the automotive supplier.
The cloud ensures flexibilityThe life cycles for vehicle models is getting shorter and shorter. At the same time, the requirements for vehicles are increasing. A deciding factor for a successful production is a lean information and communication infrastructure. More and more companies are therefore starting to rely on Cloud Computing.
