Global pure-play engineering services company L&T Technology Services (LTTS) on Thursday said it has been selected by Airbus to provide technology and digital engineering solutions for the aircraft maker’s Skywise platform.

The partnership, signed as part of a ‘Skywise Partner Programme,’ will have LTTS support the Airbus airlines in the development of complex workflows, creation of new interfaces between existing information systems and Skywise, and also provide assistance in their digital transformation with Skywise, as per a statement.

Skywise is an open data platform developed by Airbus for the aviation industry. Skywise’s users include the likes of Malaysia based budget air carrier AirAsia.

Skywise, as per an official website description, offers insights from the massive amounts of data that was previously locked in corporate and functional silos. It extracts data from on-board systems of aircrafts, identifies patterns within data, and further translates into decision-making.

Currently, over 130 airlines around the world are connected to Skywise. 

LTTS’ set of engineers and data scientists will work exclusively on the Skywise platform and build solutions to address the digital transformation needs of airlines and the fast-expanding Skywise ecosystem, the statement added.
