In the December 3 issue of Information Week, Rockwell Automation VP and CIO Mike Jackson talks about the top IT goals for 2008 for Rockwell:
- Global Process Trans- formation--in 2004, Rockwell Automation set out to replace many different business processes and ERP systems with a single set of global processes and one enterprise-wide solution. We are into the third year of a five-year roll out plan.
- A real-time manufacturing IT strategy--synchronizing plant operations with enterprise business and supply chain systems globally is a tall order, but establishing visibility and process control across our extended supply chain is a fundamental aspect of remaining competitive as a global electronics manufacturer.
- Supporting the rapid growth and globalization of our business.
