IT Keynote Address

IT and Digital Technologies have continued to ramp up throughout the pandemic. There is overwhelming excitement, desire, and absolute necessity for radical change to shift from where we are now, to where we need to be within the aviation industry. What steps must be taken to keep up and remain competitive within the industry? What must businesses do to leverage new digital opportunities? Will a whole new class of solutions democratize and revolutionize seemingly everything, starting with air travel? What new technologies are on the horizon and have the potential to be integrated into your business model? How can you beat the rest and integrate sooner? Keynote Speaker: John H. Schmidt, Senior Managing Director, Global Aerospace & Defense Lead, Accenture 1:30pm

Software Modernization for the Aerospace Industry

Taking a deep dive into software modernization for the aerospace industry, from the baseline of cloud migration, up to data analytics and decision support, which problems need immediate attention and what are the best practices to this system optimization? How can the industry best define legacy - if not through system age then through adaptability, connectivity and security? From small firms up to multinational conglomerates, how do challenges vary across the scale of companies? Moderator: Scott Loescher, CEO, AvSight Aviation Software Darryl Maraj, Head of Technology, Digital Innovation Group, GA Telesis Anna Paugh, Senior Director, TrueAero, LLC

Airline and MRO Experience in IT System Modernization

Sponsored by

Maintaining fleets of aircraft in a regulated environment is a complex function to which Information Technology (IT) systems have been applied for many decades. Replacing these ageing systems offers the potential to improve outcomes by facilitating compliance and driving efficiencies in maintenance work planning and execution, all while reducing cost of ownership. Given the large amounts of data involved and the number of maintenance and engineering staff impacted, great care is required in planning, preparation and system implementation. In this session you will hear a firsthand airline perspective and a supplier perspective on selecting, rolling out and leveraging a new digital MRO solution. Topics covered will include business case drivers, selection criteria, implementation challenges, early returns and lessons learned. Michael Egan, VP Commercial Aviation, IFS Aerospace & Defense Jason Lee, VP, Commercial Sales, IFS Aerospace & Defense Yessibeth Jurado, Senior Manager – Projects & MRO Systems, Copa Airlines 3:55pm

Presentation: Utilizing Digital Tools to Improve Passenger Experience

Joelle Cuvelier, Head of Airline Solutions & Delivery, Americas, Amadeus 4:20pm

Harnessing innovation in Tech Ops and creating synergies in Flight Ops and Across Organisations

Assessing the value proposition for investing in efficiencies in MRO IT, how can innovation drive ROI? Looking at the insights that provides, how can this be translated across your organization and how can new information aid decision-making for end operators? Moderator: Lindsay Bjerregaard, Managing Editor, MRO, Aviation Week Network Arun Chhabra, CEO, 8Tree Mark Schulz, Founder, #DigitalAircraft 4.55pm Closing Remarks Jacqueline Smith, Senior Conference Producer, Aviation Week Network 5:00pm – 6:00pm

Innovation Showcase: Automation for Aviation Suppliers

We all know that “time is money.” This is never more true than when your talented team is spending too much time on necessary, but repetitive, work. AvSight has leveraged the power of Salesforce to make automating these tasks simple - no IT developers required! We’ll show you how our visual workflow builder makes it possible for anyone to create robust automations, boosting efficiency and profitability. We’ll also share updates on emerging technologies, such as AI, that enhance automation capabilities even further! 10-minute presentation with 5 minutes Q&A time Scott Loescher, CEO, AvSight Aviation Software Frank Scales, Senior Sales Engineer, AvSight Aviation Software | 5

Agenda 1:55pm Innovation Showcase:

“Finally A Way To See All Data Across Your Organization”

Today’s aviation businesses are diverse and sophisticated. With companies relying on multiple sources of data, or having multiple facilities running independent systems it is increasingly difficult to make real time decisions with disbursed data. Ambry Hill has created Vista One to bring all of this data together in one place, regardless of where it is located. And, we have put this technology into our new Aviation Parts Trading and MRO software, Vista Suite. Now, you can bring different data sources right to your fingertips even if the data sources are at different facilities, or on different platforms. 10-minute presentation with 5 minutes Q&A time Paul Stewart, President, Ambry Hill Technologies Cole Davisson, VP of Sofware Innovation, Ambry Hill Technologies 2:20pm

Beyond cutover: Realizing the benefits and unlocking full potential of new solution

Implementation of new Information Technology (IT) systems doesn’t stop at migration. After careful planning and execution of cutover, the system users then enter into the post-migration stabilization phase. While we expect to see considerable operational and financial benefits right after implementation, data- and process-driven operational issues could lead to costly inefficiencies. In this session you will hear about post-implementation trends, common issues uncovered once the system is live, how to quickly identify root-causes, and which steps to take to develop the resolution plan. François Bellemare, Principal, Oliver Wyman


Data Ownership, Analytics & Management

Examining the potential to utilize data to build partnerships between manufacturers and operators both to utilize real time data, extending maintenance intervals to improve operational performance, reliability and pursue operational excellence. What are best practices to build and manage an IoT system? What are the parameters around data ownership and how can this be managed? What is the role of blockchain in linking data and systems together? Understand best practices to leverage increased data connectivity to innovate across your organization and ask, how does data become a revenue generator in the future? Moderator: Kevin Goering, Partner, McKinsey & Company Nathaniel Hicks, Senior Product Group Leader, GE Digital Aviation Software Raul Segredo, President & CEO, Avionica 3.15pm Afternoon Networking Break

Enjoy refreshments with your fellow attendees and make new connections during this afternoon networking opportunity. 3:50pm Focus on Technology Implementation,

Adoption and Training

As digital transformation within Aerospace continues to accelerate, data driven digital technologies are increasingly commonplace. What are the key steps to build an adoption strategy for these systems? What training requirements are needed to ensure technicians can use new tools efficiently? Moderator: Mark Buongiorno, Chief Operating Officer, Tsunami Tsolutions LLC Andy Hakes, Founder & CEO, AireXpert Mike Kelly, Sustainment Director, Advanced Development Programs, Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company Michael Schlotterbeck, Smart Factory Asset Integration Leader, Deloitte Consulting 4:25pm
