How Boeing is using the cloud

Brandon Butler | April 4, 2014
Boeing's chief cloud strategist, David Nelson, outlined a couple of ways the aircraft manufacturer is not only using the public cloud, but combining that that with on-premises virtualized workloads to create a hybrid environment.

It's been a success, Nelson said, because many of the big airline companies work with multiple aircraft manufacturers, such as Boeing and Airbus, but they can go to Boeing to get the repair and Toolbox information from a variety of manufacturers.

These applications took years to develop and many different approvals within the company, Nelson said. "It's still a challenge," to get cloud applications perfect, he said after his presentation. To get both the technical deployment of the application perfected as well as the legal, regulatory and security assurances in place is not easy. But, if completed it can create efficiencies and open up new products and services for companies.
