Distributed Server Optimization Team

Information Technology represents a new age at Boeing. But even cutting-edge services need to operate at maximum efficiency. Servers across Boeing are our high-tech storage facilities. How can we use them more cost-effectively? Our team, led by the Shared Services Group, has been chartered to find out and make the necessary improvements. First, we're looking at the server infrastructure at Boeing Commercial Airplanes to streamline operating costs without compromising quality or customer service. Our goal was to reduce 645 servers by 30 percent. We are doing that partly by enabling multiple line-of-business applications to run on the same piece of hardware, even when they have different operating systems. So far, we have "surplused" or redeployed more than 215 of BCA's servers and reassigned more than 155. Last year, we helped save millions of dollars in recurring costs, and this year we expect to save several million more. We see this as a great opportunity to improve the bottom line at Boeing. But, as always, our Boeing employee customers are our No. 1 priority. Mary Renkert
