What does aerospace have to teach us about cost-effective IT modernization?
In my mind, there are many similarities between aerospace platforms and IT systems, not the least both are capital intensive and can experience rapid technological obsolescence. Yet, Boeing has flown an airplane from 1955, some 66 years, and it is expected to fly beyond 2050. How has Boeing been able to continuously modernize an aircraft with such longevity, while remaining a state-of-the-art platform and the best economic choice?

When we look closely, there are 4 parallels between Boeing’s aircraft and Oracle SOA Suite customers, who are driving platform modernization:
- An extensible, re-configurable architecture
With SOA Suite containerization, customers can easily configure SOA Suite’s architecture to easily run in the cloud, on-premise or in a hybrid configuration. This protects your investment in existing integrations, while SOA modernization can take place with Oracle Integration. Read the complete article here.
