Jaguar Land Rover is implementing Oracle databases and application cluster software.
The car manufacturer, which was bought last year by Tata Motors, is moving to its new parent’s IT systems and away from those used by previous parent, Ford Motors.
It has implemented Oracle Database Enterprise Edition, Oracle Real Application Clusters and Oracle Partitioning software.
Jaguar Land Rover said that by replicating systems across its business, instead of operating between different systems, it would save money, and improve scalability and flexibility.
The Oracle platform will link into many of the car manufacturer’s 1,200 applications from 580 different suppliers. Oracle co-developed a project plan with the company that will help ensure business continuity during the migration of applications.
The technology “effectively and efficiently minimises complexity, ensures business continuity and has scalability”, Oracle said.
Jaguar Land Rover will also implement Oracle Enterprise Manager and Oracle Application Server Enterprise Edition, which it said would increase efficiency further within its architecture.
The car manufacturer is driving efficiency schemes as it hits difficult times. It is currently seeking emergency funding from the UK government and other sources.
