Microsoft to Build Cloud-Based Platform for Boeing's Analytics Tools

Microsoft is to build a cloud-based platform for Boeing's portfolio of commercial aviation analytics tools.

The two companies intend to work together to transition many of Boeing's commercial aviation applications into the Microsoft Azure cloud.

Boeing and its subsidiaries AerData and Jeppesen offer a wide portfolio of advanced analytics tools currently used by more than 300 airlines to optimize operating efficiency.

"Boeing's expertise and extensive aviation data resources coupled with Microsoft's cloud technology will accelerate innovation in areas such as predictive maintenance and flight optimization, allowing airlines to drive down costs and improve operational efficiency," said Kevin Crowley, Boeing vice president of Digital Aviation. "Together, two companies that changed their industries are teaming up to accelerate the digital transformation of aviation through the use of analytics-based applications, cloud technologies and large-scale integration."

Boeing's applications provide airlines, airplane leasing companies and maintenance suppliers with real-time information to enhance every phase of their operations including purchasing and leasing airplanes and engines, training and scheduling crews, route planning, managing inventory and maintaining fleets.
