Toyota Motor Corporation is the third largest automaker in the world and produces a full range of model offerings - from mini-vehicles to large trucks. As a medium size organisation, Toyota Australia is not justified to invest so much on manpower to support the major IT activity. By outsourcing, it could be more flexible and better take advantage of the latest developments in technology. For this they chose Fujitsu. Fujitsu has managed Toyota's mainframe and midrange data centre services, including the operation of a Fujitsu M780/20 mainframe. Toyota moved its legacy applications to a SAP/3 ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) platform some years ago, and Fujitsu has the service support contract for these SAP operations. Fujitsu manages Toyota's IBM AS/400 midrange machines.
