Airbus looks to double core digital job from new Bengaluru centre

Bengaluru: Airbus is planning to double the work it does in-house from its new information management centre in Bengaluru, as the passenger aircraft maker looks to consolidate core digital work within the company, top executives told ET.
Currently, the European multinational company does only 20% of its IT work in-house and the internal target is to double that.
“To get from 20% to 40%, we can’t do it from one footprint (in Europe) alone and one of the ways is leveraging our presence in India,” Airbus Group India chief information officer Carlo K Nizam told ET, without disclosing a timeline.
Airbus has over 1,400 people at its Information Management unit in Europe and around 300 in Bengaluru, which will increase to 500 this year. The company, which also makes helicopters, military aircraft and rockets, has an engineering hub that employs over 1,000 people in the same unit.
“We wouldn’t outsource the architecture of the aircraft. In the past, we were heavily outsourcing our neural networks (and) IT systems. Part of what we are insourcing (is) what we consider as roles such as architecture and (in) new skills,” he said.
