The sound of a Cummins diesel engine at idle—throaty rumbling over a purposeful, rhythmic ticking—is the company’s iconic, auditory signature. It’s the sound of power, dependability, and innovation, and it sums up the Cummins brand every time a driver turns the key. Today, as Cummins switches gears to maintain leadership in a rapidly evolving automotive and power industry, another sound signals a technology revolution at the company—and it’s a lot quieter.
As Cummins launches into the world of electrified power—with acquisitions of Brammo and Johnson Matthey Battery Systems and the addition of the Electrified Power Business Segment—and unveils new programs like the Digital Accelerator that focuses on the digitization of Cummins’s products, it is more important than ever to enable the talents of a global organization through increased collaboration.
Empowering innovation means harnessing the talents of all 58,600 employees in more than 190 countries, and Cummins chose Microsoft 365 as an enabler. According to Vice President and Chief Information Officer, Sherry Aaholm, “At Cummins, we’re taking the lead on the importance of diversity within the business culture. When I joined, I was impressed by the number of women executive leaders and the value Cummins places on diversity in decision making—for us it is a competitive advantage. Microsoft 365 supports that culture through flexible tools that suit different ways of working so everyone can deliver their best work.” Microsoft 365—a complete, intelligent solution that includes Office 365, Windows 10 Enterprise, and Enterprise Mobility + Security—helps empower Cummins employees to be creative and work together in an extremely secure way.
