IBM to integrate Fiat, Chrysler

by David Zatz on

Detroit News’ Bryce G. Hoffman reported today that IBM will integrate Fiat’s, Chrysler’s, and CNH’s global computer systems and related business processes.

The contract will likely bring Chrysler and CNH into line with Fiat’s practices, given that IBM has been working with Fiat for ten years.  At Chrysler, the new contract replaces IT supplier CSC.

Integrating processes, software, and hardware is likely necessary in the long run for the level of collaboration desired by Chrysler and Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne. IBM announced that the integration would help bring together dealer networks as well as engineering.

Fiat gained control of Chrysler in 2009, but did not actually take ownership of the full company until this year. CNH Industrial was created by merging Case New Holland with Fiat Industrial.
