How a hail storm spurred Makita's IT transformation

Bonnie Gardiner (CIO) | Aug. 5, 2015
After a massive loss of IT systems during a hail storm, power tools retailer Makita learnt to pick itself up and achieve greater flexibility, standardisation and cost savings.

Another big selling point for Makita was the implementation of virtual desktops through the Task View feature, which will enable employees with varying roles to better organise desktop views with several jobs on the go at any one time.

"That will be a real boon for the multi-taskers, allowing them to go back and forth between either open apps or multiple virtual 'desktops' of apps," said Adams.

"It's an exciting time for Makita in Australia because the way we operate today is going to be very different to the way we operate in six months' time, and that change is being driven by the initiatives that we're undertaking now.

"We're going to be able to come back (from the huge loss) a lot stronger, and completely modernised."
