IT Solutions for Aerospace and Defense Industry | HCL Technologies

Overview

The global Aerospace and Defense industry is experiencing phenomenal growth in recent years and is worth an estimated US$838 billion and is expected to continue its growth trajectory in coming years, led by growing commercial aircraft production and strong defense spending.

A&D companies will need to transform their business processes and technology to meet the new commitments and capitalize on the growth.  Large corporations are transforming their enterprise landscapes with newer ERP platforms and applying the latest Industry 4.0 principles, such as IoT for enabling a connected ecosystem and real time global supply chain. HCL is at the pinnacle of this revolution and has helped many Fortune 500 corporations in transforming their organizations. HCL leverages the key tenets to help A&D companies transform their enterprise business systems through human-centered design-led platform solutions that eliminate waste through autonomics (AI & Analytics), drive rapid change with DevOps, innovate through the ecosystem, and generate new business models through IoT.

BUSINESS SEGMENTS

Aerospace and Business Jets
Commercial Aerospace and Business Jets

The Commercial Civil Aviation segment involves configurations like a Double deck, Twin-aisle, Single-aisle, Regional Jets, Props, Corporate, and Helicopters. The very nature of the aerospace business is constantly seeking solutions for the needs of the global economy but rapid innovations in technology in the last few decades have expedited the process. The aerospace industry utilizes a tiered supply chain, with tier one companies supplying parts directly to OEM’s, level 2 companies supplying parts to a tier one supplier and so on. This is a typical supply chain structure for an industry in which the final product is composed of many sophisticated components, subcomponents, and assemblies. HCL has thought leadership to help Aerospace and Defense companies address these challenges. As an example, for prioritizing profitability, HCL can help businesses optimize a distinct business capability via analytics and thus better compete. HCL can also help the pressure A&D companies are facing in the supply chain by creating a reliable and efficient supply system through consolidation of multiple procurement platforms and having adequate systems for supply chain visibility.
