1,350 systems in 880 days: What the transition from GM to Groupe PSA means for Opel IT
Opel/Vauxhall have been part of Groupe PSA since August 1, 2017. Previously, the Rüsselsheim-based carmaker had been part of the General Motors family for 88 years – and was fully integrated, especially with regard to IT solutions. Ever since the change of ownership, Opel IT has mainly been focusing on one project: the fast, safe and efficient relocation of the solutions into the Groupe PSA system environment. This is always performed in line with PACE!, Opel’s future plan, which will help to company become sustainably profitable, global and electric.
And “PACE!” or speed is also key in the IT transition program. The team around Thomas Külpp wants to have successfully completed the takeover of the GM systems by the end of 2019 already. In parallel, the team is working intensively on the integration of these systems into the Groupe PSA system environment. In doing so, synergy effects and innovations are paramount.
The CIO will explain precisely how he wants to achieve this at the automotiveIT Kongress 2019.
