Capgemini takes Airbus to multi-hybrid cloud

Capgemini has been selected by Airbus to provide a fully managed service of the business’ core cloud infrastructure.

As a strategic partner, Capgemini will drive transformation through unifying and modernizing existing services and managing both private and public clouds as well as legacy infrastructure to achieve the flexibility needed to meet the future needs of Airbus Commercial Aircraft and Helicopters.

It will also facilitate the modernization of applications, moving the environment to a multi-hybrid cloud solution. A ‘pay-per-use’ model will be deployed to support the continuity of Airbus’ activity, while allowing flexibility.

To align the delivery of services against Airbus’ sustainability ambition, Capgemini will provide a next-generation cloud and infrastructure platform, adopting a holistic ‘sustainability by design’ approach to achieve an infrastructure carbon impact reduction across the service lines and help Airbus Commercial Aircraft and Helicopters to reach carbon neutrality by 2024.

Nive Bhagat, CEO of Capgemini’s cloud and infrastructure services and member of the group executive committee, said: “Innovation and sustainability are the top priorities for industry leaders today. We are fully mobilized to accompany Airbus’ existing and future programs for sustainable aerospace and resilient operations, bringing together the best of Capgemini’s expertise in cloud combined with transformation and innovation enablers. This agreement reflects Capgemini’s position as the key business partner for strategic programs of global players who are themselves leaders in their industry.”
