In a highly regulated, safety-critical industry like commercial aviation, information sharing is of paramount importance, even when competitive relationships also exist. To solve this problem, Boeing has built a vendor-neutral platform where the players can securely work together to maximize safety and operational efficiency. Leveraging the best-of-industry offerings from AWS, Boeing and other companies can launch innovative applications on the platform with data governance that secures competition-sensitive information from the wrong eyes. In this session, we explore the business drivers behind the project and the challenges met and overcome during design and implementation.
