[Avionics Today 08-16-2016] Boeing Vancouver is opening a new downtown laboratory focused on data analytics-driven software solutions. The Vancouver Labs will be focused on rapidly conceiving, building and scaling solutions that help airlines and other aircraft operators increase efficiencies and drive costs out of their businesses, according to Boeing. The Vancouver Labs will complement the company’s facilities in Richmond, B.C.
By leveraging data science insights, reducing traditional enterprise development cycles, and working with customers in a consultative manner as products are developed, the Vancouver Labs aims to deliver innovative solutions to Boeing’s global customer base at an accelerated pace.
“The expansion represents a natural extension of Boeing Vancouver’s analytics, software development and professional consulting work,” said Boeing Vancouver president Bob Cantwell. “The new Vancouver Labs ... will focus on delivering data-driven solutions at a rapidly increased pace over traditional development.”
Boeing Vancouver, formerly known as AeroInfo, will move into the new facility in September.
