JATCO Drives Global Growth With a Single Enterprise Information Portal
Throughout the 1990s, Japanese Automatic Transmission Company (JATCO), a manufacturer of automobile gearboxes, transformed its global practices with several major business mergers. JATCO formed a new company, combining two major global automobile corporations. To drive business expansion, JATCO needed to upgrade its IT environment to handle a global system. Furthermore, an existing Lotus Notes system could not handle the organization's growing number of document files and the increasing size of the company's database. To solve this problem, JATCO decided to implement an Enterprise Information Portal (EIP) built on Oracle WebCenter Interaction, which is part of Oracle WebCenter Suite and a portal platform that provides users with easy access to reliable, consistent information.
