Jaguar Land Rover, one of the worlds premier manufacturers of luxury sports saloons and 4x4 cars, has implemented Oracle Database Enterprise Edition, Oracle Real Application Clusters and Oracle Partitioning.
Oracle technology underpins Jaguars Clone and Go project, which is intended to replicate the variety of technologies used across its UK operation. By replicating the same system across the organisation the company will achieve cost efficiencies around maintenance and upgrades, while giving the IT infrastructure the agility and scalability to respond to the changing demands of the business.
The robustness and scalability of the Oracle platform will also help to ensure that the customer has business continuity while transitioning from its existing technology platform. As part of this project, Oracle has deployed the foundation for Jaguar Land Rovers cloned IT infrastructure, enabling the migration of 1,200 applications, supplied by 580 vendors.
Oracle worked closely with Jaguar Land Rover to minimise the complexity of the project by developing a project plan, which has given the customer the flexibility to scale the adoption of the platform according to its business requirements.
Jaguar Land Rover will also implement Oracle Enterprise Manager and Oracle Application Server Enterprise Edition to manage and increase efficiencies within its architecture and enterprise applications.
David Callaghan, Senior Vice President Technology and Country Leader, Oracle UK, Ireland and Israel, said: It is incredibly exciting to be working with Jaguar Land Rover, as it is clear the company has an excellent vision to maintain its place among the premier automotive brands. Our strategic partnership has been key, because we have been able to understand their critical requirements and build a plan, that effectively and efficiently minimises complexity, ensures business continuity and has scalability to match their aspirations.
