TRW Gets A Tuneup From Dell

TRW Automotive in on a consolidation spree. The $12 billion-a-year auto-parts maker signed a three-year deal with Dell to standardize on Dell products and services as part of an ongoing effort to consolidate dozens of server sites into four regional data-center hubs. Joe Drouin, global CIO for TRW, wants to move as much of its server infrastructure as possible off Unix-based equipment to Dell systems running Linux. It's expected to help the company consolidate all those server sites into data centers in North America, Germany, Brazil, and Kuala Lumpur. But not everything is ready to be moved yet, including TRW's SAP implementation.
