Digital redefines the future of aerospace
The aerospace industry faces continual and intense pressure to deliver the benefits of innovation. From the seeds of a design idea through to the in-flight experience of travellers on some 100,000 flights every day, digital now becomes integral to differentiation and success.
The ‘connected airplane’ is increasingly tuned and monitored both to heighten safety and security and to minimise cost and environmental impact. It is also increasingly customised during production and refit, adding bespoke value for individual airline clients. Atos combines specialist aerospace experience with a deep understanding of digital transformation, and is ready to help you craft and sustain an effective digital strategy.
Spanning complex design and production environments, we will help identify approaches to maximising efficiency without compromise in either quality or security.
Aerospace programmes demand a high degree of integration between mechanical, electrical and information components. This demand for integration extends across both supply chains and product lifecycles. Atos will support you in your continual pursuit of agile and effective integration.
We will help you take advantage of new data analytics too, in areas as diverse as fuel consumption and sustainability, on the one hand, and traveller experience and social media, on the other.
According to a Roland Berger survey, 98% of respondents in aerospace and defense believe digital is having a major impact on their industry.*

Customer transformation challenges
Look at digital transformation in aerospace from four perspectives …
How can you actively involve customers in development, envisioning new and compelling in-flight experiences for winning and enduring products?
How will the internet-of-things, robotics and additive manufacturing, for example, impact new approaches to production and maintenance?
Do new alliances offer new opportunities: how can you, for example, exploit the crossover between civil and military initiatives?
Trust and compliance
How will you face the greater diversity of threats and responsibilities that come with growing reliance on data and increase in connectivity?
