Advantest Corp., a Japan-based semiconductor testing device manufacturer, plans to separate its information technology (IT) department and establish a new, wholly-owned subsidiary to be named Advantest Information Systems Inc.

The new company will integrate the various Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems used by Advantest and its subsidiaries to create a global data warehouse. Once established, this data warehouse will allow Advantest employees to access sales, manufacturing, accounting, and personnel data from throughout the Advantest Group and analyze this data from a multitude of different angles. Furthermore, by centralizing management of the Advantest Group's various IT systems, Advantest Information Systems is expected to help its parent company reduce its IT operating costs, eliminate redundancies in its IT investments, and strengthen the security of its company network.
