IBM Cloud managed services to assist Pratt & Whitney to double production by 2020
FARNBOROUGH AIR SHOW – 12 Jul 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — IBM (NYSE: IBM) and Pratt & Whitney, a United Technologies Corp. company (NYSE: UTX) today announced they will move the engine manufacturer’s business, engineering and manufacturing enterprise systems to a fully managed and supported environment on the IBM Cloud infrastructure.
Due to the market success of its broad portfolio of engines, Pratt & Whitney is expected to more than double production by 2020. Having made the investments in its facilities, suppliers, technology and people, Pratt & Whitney is well-positioned to support the increase in production. Those expanded facilities and an enhanced supply chain will result in significant data growth and the need to securely store, quickly access and take action with that new data.
“Working with IBM and moving our three enterprise systems to a managed cloud service will give us the ability to scale quickly and meet the increased demands for computing services, data processing and storage based on Pratt & Whitney’s forecasted growth over the next decade,”said Brian Galovich, vice president and chief information officer, Pratt & Whitney.
“Data is one of the fastest growing natural resources we have, and it requires an environment to not only house it, but one that has the flexibility and scale to grow with it.”
This builds off an agreement two years ago in which IBM assisted Pratt & Whitney to broaden its current performance monitoring capabilities of operational commercial engines, leveraging the IBM analytics platform. These predictive capabilities help provide Pratt & Whitney customers with longer time on-wing, complement current asset maintenance alerts and deliver greater insight into flight operational data. Pratt & Whitney will host this data growth and workload on the IBM Cloud.
“IBM Cloud managed services will provide Pratt & Whitney with the means to manage, analyze and grow its infrastructure dynamically to accommodate the company’s growth,”said Phil Guido, General Manager, IBM Services, North America. “Pratt & Whitney will be able to gain greater insights across its operations as it builds understanding and learning into its information technology.”
