Air France-KLM


Air France-KLM went through turbulent times during the pandemic. However, the company wanted to be fit for the future with expected increase in flights after this period. So, in the light of ‘never waste a good crisis’ with limited operations during covid-19, Air France-KLM’s IT department used the momentum and started with the cloud transformation. Scalability and ability to absorb further pressure on IT are main goals to reach. Current challenges are the division of work and stakeholder engagement: how do you engage different departments besides the IT department? How does the cloud transformation become a collaborative project, rather than solely an IT project?
