Bengaluru: Airbus India has inaugurated a 500-person, state-of-the-art office in Bengaluru to help advance the group’s fast-expanding information technology and digital capabilities across its global operations.

The new Information Management Centre underscores Airbus’ efforts to maximise value from its global footprint, including from India where a remarkable Information Technology (IT) engineering talent pool is complementing Airbus’ European partner ecosystems.

 

Airbus began expanding its information management capabilities in India in 2017 and is rapidly ramping up over the course of 2019 and 2020.

The areas that it is expanding in include ERP operations, engineering and product life-cycle management as well as digital capabilities that include big data, advanced analytics, Internet of Things, Cloud and DevOps, API development as well as cyber security.

Airbus India & South Asia President & Managing Director Anand E Stanley said, "Airbus is leveraging the strength of India that includes talent, the ability to scale volume and the extremely strong presence of an ecosystem which perhaps is the largest IT partner base in the world. Our latest information management facility is about value play. It is about insourcing rather than outsourcing. It is about core and not non-core."

 

The new facility, inspired by nature, using a large amount of green and natural light, will use virtual computing to reduce carbon footprint and is built to cater to the needs of differently-abled employees, providing wheelchair access and braille coding wherever possible.

Inspired by agile working, the office supports remote collaboration, offers touch screens at all workstations and has amphitheatres to support distributed Program Increment (PI) events.  It has nap rooms, bedrooms as well as showers to enhance employee productivity and support 24x7 operations.

Airbus India & South Asia Chief Information Officer Carlo Nizam said, "Digital transformation is driving changes to our workforce evolution and make/buy approach that includes a greater degree of internal competences and capabilities as well as access to new partner ecosystems. These evolutions cannot be addressed from our European footprint alone and require an integrated global approach.  Our footprint in India is a strategic and integrated arm of information management that provides access to a vast pool of skilled talent."
