First Episode : Why is industry shifting to the cloud? – BoostAeroSpace Feedback


Providing a secure environment for the aeronautics and defense industry became a successful challenge for BoostAeroSpace. Collaboration between the many partners in this sector is key to the successful completion of strategic projects of international scope. But so is the confidentiality of the data exchanged. In 2011, Airbus, Dassault Aviation, Safran and Thales founded BoostAeroSpace, whose mission today is to provide secure collaborative platforms on the cloud dedicated to their sector.


Just like our daily reflexes on social and business networks, streaming video, storing our photos, the Cloud is winning over the industrial sector, which sees many advantages in two major areas: avoiding IT infrastructure costs and securing sensitive data.


The Cloud makes it possible to minimize the constraints related to software installation for all partners and to receive regular updates at no added cost”, says Jean-François Cugy, General Manager of BoostAeroSpace.


Did you know that an average of 720,000 people in the aerospace-defense ecosystem need to collaborate on a regular basis? With this in mind, secure and homogenized hosting of these significant data exchanges is becoming a prerequisite for the aeronautics and defense industry. Thanks to Cloud technology, BoostAeroSpace offers three main collaborative platforms to its industrial sector:

  • AirSupply, dedicated to the logistics chain (order placement between partners)
  • AirCollab, for data sharing (project documents and calendars)
  • AirDesign, designed for collaboration during the design phases, particularly for innovation projects at the start of a product life cycle.


The Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE® platform on the Cloud offers regular upgrades, readily available online for all partners at the same time. First and foremost, it is a practical solution, ideal for collaboration”, concludes Jean-François Cugy.
