MRO IT
Factors Driving Ownership & Cost of IT Systems
11:00  to  12:30 v 'Room - Columbia'

What are the main factors driving the ownership of an IT system? The primary purpose is to successfully and efficiently manage the process. However, as that process becomes more complex and the need to keep up with the latest regulations, what other considerations need to be taken into account? Is cloud deployment viable and secure? Is there an ability to turn down IT costs when a future pandemic, or other 'shock to the system' hits? Is it possible to modulate the costs of the demand? How do we move from OpEx to CapEx?

Why Modernize Your MRO IT System? - The Value Case
14:00  to  15:30 v 'Room - Columbia'

In many airlines, the pandemic has exposed and highlighted the need to update, modernize, and further digitize many operations - to become more flexible in readiness for the next unpredicted 'major shock to the system'.

But what other values should be considered in modernizing a major IT investment? Paperless maintenance, mobility issues, hangar/line maintenance, workforce effectiveness, staff turnover, and predictive maintenance all play a large role, but we will look further into the considerations for airlines.
