Webinar Overview

Register to view this on-Demand Webinar (recorded 21st May 2015) for an excellent chance to discover the unique and ground-breaking aviation data / application archiving solution InfoArchive from Flatirons.  During the Webinar the Flatirons experts introduce you to InfoArchive and show you how the solution can be easily used to: store the data from multiple legacy or under-performing aviation software applications allowing them to be shut down; quickly search through and find key archived data; facilitate easy data migration between systems or into new systems. 

The Webinar is divided into two sections.  Firstly, the Flatirons experts provide a full overview of InfoArchive with a particular focus on using the system to facilitate the closing of expensive under-performing or legacy software applications and the significant cost savings this can generate for airlines, OEMs, MROs and all other aviation companies.  

You the see how to remain fully compliant through the easy storing of all historical data, from one or multiple systems, whether it be aircraft maintenance, flight operations, or any other data, within InfoArchive and the significant return-on-investment that follows through eliminating the cost of expensive, under-used / legacy systems and releasing key IT man hours from maintaining these systems to take on new and beneficial projects.  

Secondly, using data from a large airline user of InfoArchive, the Flatirons experts show you a live demo of the system.  You see how InfoArchive assisted the airline to retire legacy aircraft M&E and Flight Operations systems and using XML technology provides key personnel with easy access to the historical data such as Work Cards and Engineering Orders; and ETS reporting data via a single web-based search facility.

Full On-Demand Webinar Preview:

Webinar section 1: An overview of InfoArchive and how to retire legacy / under-performing aviation software applications.

Did you know that most companies in regulated industries such as aviation spend almost 3/4 of their available IT budgets on legacy applications and infrastructure be it: MRO / M&E, ERP, Flight Ops, crew rostering, Finance systems, Quality and safety management?  Simply put, the liability cost of shutting down a redundant or obsolete application is seen as being higher than the cost to maintain it – even if the information is seldom or never accessed.   This of course reduces the IT budget and key man-hours to develop or take on new and innovative solutions.

In this opening section of the Webinar, the Flatirons Solutions experts highlight the compelling benefits of application retirement using InfoArchive.  You learn how InfoArchive can quickly and efficiently extract and archive the data from legacy or under-performing systems and using XML technology provide ongoing access to the data via a single unified web front-end.  As you see this process generates significant ROI by eliminating expensive legacy systems and archiving the data from multiple systems into one one repository; or in the case of companies merging, allows duplicate applications to be retired or archived.  The data is also ready for migration into a new system if required.

Webinar Section 2: Live Demonstration of InfoArchive:

Next the Flatirons experts take you on an as live demonstration of InfoArchive.  Using the real-data from one of their customers following the retirement of aircraft M&E and Flight Operations legacy systems you see how easily it is for compliance managers, planners and others who need to research maintenance or operations histories to search through InfoArchive and find the key historical legacy system data such as Work Cards and Engineering Orders; and ETS reporting data, thus complying with strict regulations.

You also see a demo of the powerful Business Intelligence and reporting functionality InfoArchive provides as it draws data from all areas of the business (maintenance, finance, HR, flight operations, etc) and generates unified reports that were not previously possible allowing for new business insights.

Key takeaways from the Webinar and the benefits of using InfoArchive:

  • Significant Return-On-Investment
    By eliminating use of expensive legacy systems and consolidating multiple systems in a single, open source based technology stack.
  • Optimization following mergers or re-orgs
