- 7 Oct, 2013
Boeing is generally known as the world’s largest aerospace company and aircraft manufacturer. But in addition to being a leader in aerospace world, Boeing also has a major business unit working on the cutting edge of information technology. In a highly-regulated, safety-focused and hyper-competitive industry like aviation, information sharing is of paramount importance – yet security and protection of highly sensitive data is equally critical. To address this challenge, Boeing built the Digital Aviation Platform using WSO2. The cloud-based Digital Aviation Platform is where Boeing integrates its products and services to connect its decades of OEM aircraft data with airline back office systems. The result? Integrated solutions that power airline operations and improve decision making through advanced analytics. In this talk, we'll explore the business drivers behind the project, the challenges met and overcome during design and implementation and the strengths and challenges of WSO2 as a foundation.
