Lemaitre said digital transformation in the aerospace industry currently is focused primarily on analytics, thus overlooking a key area of improvement that is SkyThread's focus.
"That key area is the ability to rapidly record error-free aviation transactions, which is a far more fruitful pursuit, As the industry struggles to streamline transactions and unleash more than $30 billion in unrealized value, accelerating error-free data exchange among all participants is key to customer success," he said. "I look forward to helping customers streamline transaction processes and accelerate our industry's necessary digital transformation without additional capital investment."
