There is constant competitive pressure on aerospace and defense companies based on changing business conditions caused by mergers and acquisitions, increased tariffs, the shift from the traditional offset model to more international sales (Asia and the Middle East) based on local design and manufacturing, and supply chain complexities, to name a few. This disruption is driving the need to streamline and accelerate the manufacturing process, capture more market share, and create new value propositions, all while keeping costs down. Artificial Intelligence, 3D printing, IoT, Blockchain and other technologies open the opportunity to make these goals possible.
Behind all these developments lie the disruptive innovation and new business models reshaping aerospace and defense. Avasant works with aerospace and defense companies on uncovering the best use cases for digital technologies to drive innovation for their businesses. We help our clients deploy innovation labs and digital accelerators, to discover the most meaningful applications of technology for their business and their customers.
L3 Communication Systems West (“L3 CSW”) engaged Avasant to conduct a comprehensive assessment of their IT organization’s capabilities, service delivery model, and costs with the goal of developing a service delivery transformation strategy and roadmap to support L3 CSW’s growth and reduce IT OPEX spend. Through the assessment process, Avasant identified areas of opportunity for service improvements and cost reduction. Avasant provided a financial business case that supported the migration of a large portion of computing infrastructure to cloud computing with the opportunity for significant cost savings.
“I have engaged with Avasant in the past on several consulting engagements as their methodologies, AvaMark™ database, and experience have proven to be a key contributor to the executive decisions I’ve led.”
