Baseline, a leading global business technology publication highlights how Qantas, Australia’s leading airline, partnered with TCS to transform its ERP systems and shift key areas of its IT to the cloud.
Qantas had started to face challenges in managing huge volumes of data with their existing ERP Systems. According to Eric Pona, Qantas Technology Manager of Enterprise System, it demanded considerable amount of effort and resources to monitor the system that was required for its effective functioning. Their key challenges involved implementation of complex ERP systems and a large number of resources allocated into monitoring those systems.
