ICT Strategy Definition

Nitto Europe

Challenge

Nitto Europe NV is the regional headquarter for the Japanese Nitto Group. Nitto Europe defines the strategic direction for the Nitto companies in the EMEA region.

Nitto manufactures sealing materials, reinforcing and damping materials and various kinds of industrial adhesive tapes such as double-sided tapes, surface protection tapes and electrical insulation tapes. These products are used in worldwide markets such as automotive, electronics, furniture, paper production, aerospace and metal processing.

In order to sustain future growth, to realise its strategic objectives as a technology-oriented company,  Nitto Europe decided to align its in house developed IT systems and applications, with a new organisation and to implement an ERP based environment for all its European entities.
 

Project approach

Frans Beckers was in charge of Nitto’s strategic project to define the future ICT approach and set-up. The ICT strategy was based on a pragmatic approach of COBIT and ITIL principles and best practices. Main elements of the project included the design of the application portfolio, business processes standardization, the IT organization structure, IT governance, ERP implementation scenario’s and organizational change in an ERP environment. 

Results

The project resulted in a common view and actionable plans to address the opportunity for new and existing information technologies to enable IT to support new business operations. A clear vision and project portfolio plan was developed of where and how the company would evolve and final decisions were taken for the future IT environment (architecture, applications, processes, organisation, governance,…) supporting the Make-to-Order principles.
