Based in Osaka, Kubota manufactures agricultural equipment, industrial engines and diggers for public works. Kubota has five subsidiaries in Europe. To support the company's expansion, in 2006 the parent company decided to migrate the information systems for all its European subsidiaries under SAP.

The Challenge

To distinguish itself in a market that is more and more competitive and to pursue its growth, Kubota must be able to count on applications that provide high levels of performance and flexibility. Its objectives: to guarantee technical stabilisation of applications in place, to ensure improvement and upgradeability of processes, and to meet professional needs.
