Today, Air India, the largest airline in India and a member of Star Alliance, announced the successful migration of their primary Enterprise Resource Planning system utilizing RISE. With SAP, specialized ERP software aids businesses in completing their unique path to the cloud and is packaged with transformation services, business analytics, and partner expertise.
The modernization of Air India’s business processes, including finance and human resources, as well as key functional areas like commercial, operations, and engineering, was impacted by this move, which was a crucial part of the company’s greater digital transformation.
Air India’s ancient ERP system, which was powered by software operating on a mainframe that was a decade old, was one of the largest obstacles it had to overcome throughout its extensive modernization process.
