Boeing has expanded its partnership with Microsoft to drive digital aviation. The aerospace firm will use the cloud and artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities to streamline business operations and update critical infrastructure.
This expanded collaboration builds on the firms’ long-standing partnership. Boeing now aims to use its vast quantity of data to drive aerospace innovation for the future.
“Boeing and Microsoft have been working together for more than two decades, and this partnership builds on that history to support Boeing’s digital future by helping it optimise operations and develop digital solutions that will benefit the global aviation industry,” said Judson Althoff, executive vice president and chief commercial officer at Microsoft. “The power of the Microsoft Cloud and its AI capabilities will serve as the core component to Boeing’s digital aviation strategy by providing flexible, agile and scalable solutions that are intelligent and data driven on a secure and compliant platform.”
