IT Policies:
AI’s IT strategy is to align the business requirement with the latest Information Technology to achieve best IS. IT strategy is a continuously evolving process to improve services. The company had upgraded its core passenger services systems such as passenger services, departure control, e-ticketing, e-commerce and baggage services to the latest state-of-the-art solution on a hosted platform. We are in the process of replacing the existing ERP, MRO system through a well known SAP platform. AI has implemented a corporate document management system with the existing corporate mailing platform.

Perspective on innovative technologies like cloud and virtualization:
Vitalization would help the IT infrastructure consolidation and thereby ease of maintenance, increased utilization, reduced wastages, and others would bring down TCO. Depending upon application criticality, sensitiveness, volume, cost benefit analysis, AI can evaluate private or public cloud.

Resources to keep updated with latest technologies:
Reading technology, aviation review magazines, attending conferences and the product presentations, demonstrations and several others.
