Lufthansa Technik forms unprecedented Digital Tech Ops Ecosystem


Lufthansa Group brings together AMOS, AVIATAR, and flydocs 
Unique comprehensive coverage of  the digital tech ops value stream 
All digital solutions remain independent but under one umbrella to
jointly fast-track customers' digitalization

Lufthansa Technik creates a Digital Tech Ops Ecosystem by
incorporating Swiss AviationSoftware Ltd. (Swiss-AS) to lead the
digital transformation of the aviation industry in technical asset
operation. Swiss-AS, the developer of the world-leading M&E/MRO
software AMOS, is joining Lufthansa Technik Group. By bringing
together AMOS with AVIATAR, the independent platform for Data &
Analytics Solutions, and flydocs, the provider of Digital Records &
Asset Solutions, under one roof, Lufthansa Technik can now offer an
unprecedented digital coverage of the tech-ops value stream: These
three solutions are the pillars of the Digital Tech Ops Ecosystem
that will create additional value for customers using a
customer-centric and collaborative approach. 

The three entities remain independent but will enhance collaboration
and join forces by connecting the dots between the modularly designed
solutions. For the first time there will be comprehensive data
coverage along the entire value stream in technical operations. This
data, combined with the digital know-how in all three independent
solution providers as well as Lufthansa Technik's engineering
expertise will result in completely new offerings, accelerated
digitalization and added value for customers. As a result, the
Ecosystem will reduce MRO costs, enhance process efficiency, increase
operational stability and aircraft availability and also optimize
asset values. 

The Ecosystem has five principles that will benefit the customers: it
is open to collaborate and link with customers or external digital
solutions, modular to make individual use of parts feasible and it is
neutral, meaning, that a customer stays independent of OEMs and MROs.
It is also secure, granting customers full control and ownership of
their data. Last but not least, the Ecosystem will be seamless to
ensure a consistent workflow and data access across solutions. 

"We are happy to welcome our experienced and successful colleagues of
Swiss-AS to the Lufthansa Technik Group. It makes us proud that the
world's leading M&E/MRO software AMOS becomes a core part of our
strategic focus on digital solutions. From now on, AMOS together with
AVIATAR and flydocs form the new Digital Tech Ops Ecosystem. By
joining forces we are sending a clear signal that we are dedicated to
driving digitalization along the entire tech ops value stream for the
benefit of and together with our customers," says Dr. William Willms,
CFO of Lufthansa Technik. 

"We are convinced that AMOS, as a centerpiece of the neutral and
independent Digital Tech Ops Ecosystem, can expand its strengths even
better together with Lufthansa Technik and its digital Tech Ops
solutions. There is great potential for AMOS on its own, but even
more so in combination with AVIATAR and flydocs, " says Dr. Claus
Bauer, VP Technical Fleet Management of SWISS, the current
shareholder of Swiss-AS. 

"While AMOS is the core system in a technical operation's IT
solutions landscape, its unparalleled integration capability is the
key to ensure true end-to-end digitalization across the full value
chain. Although AMOS is capable of integrating with any other market
player, we believe that a tight alignment with the other Tech Ops
Ecosystem solutions enables us to digitalize our customers faster
using industry data exchange standards, " says Fabiano Faccoli, CEO
of Swiss-AS.

In order to push the Digital Tech Ops Ecosystem, Lufthansa Group has
decided to bundle all related activities under one organizational
roof. For this purpose Lufthansa Technik has purchased 100% of
Swiss-AS shares from Swiss International Air Lines. Flydocs and
AVIATAR are already part of Lufthansa Technik Group.
