A COVID-19 Imperative Aerospace & Defense | HCLTech


Business Challenge

Business Challenge

COVID-19 pandemic has had a tremendous impact on the global aerospace and aviation industry, causing massive disruptions across organizations and value chains.

As the situation remains fluid, businesses are trying to adjust rapidly to the challenges brought forth by the pandemic. Pressed by the need to ensure business continuity, companies need to RESET supply chain agility and responsiveness to shockproof their operations, while capitalizing on uptick in MRO activities ensuring ground fleet’s maintenance and flight readiness. Given the continued uncertainty on the impact and the duration of this crisis, ADAPTING to industry disruption with resilient business models and accelerating digital transformation becomes imperative as it takes on a new meaning from driving growth to mitigate/contain its impact on business growth/retaining market share. Success will be determined by the ability to REINVENT passenger experience to instill passenger confidence with safe and end-to-end touchless air travel, the likely difference between success and failure in the next normal
