Toyota uses Microsoft for global communications

Toyota Motor Corporation is globally deploying Microsoft software through a mix of cloud and on-premise software for its 200,000 staff

Toyota Motor Corporation is deploying Microsoft software across the globe through a mix of cloud and on-premise software for its 200,000 staff.

The two-year project sees the car manufacturer's North American operation use cloud-based Microsoft Office 365 exclusively, while operations in the rest of the world will harness a combination of cloud-based and on-premise versions of Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft Lync and Windows Server.

The firm aims to improve collaboration with social networking, conferencing, messaging and information-sharing tools. It has also targeted cost savings and will use the software to support mobile devices.
