Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) operator Bangalore International Airport Limited (BIAL) has teamed up with IT firm Datamics Global Services for digital transformation plans.

As BIAL’s digital partner, Datamatics will automate and digitise more than 170 of the group’s processes.

Datamatics will be responsible for streamlining the airport operator’s core processes by digitising its assets. It will help BIAL to create integrated workflows for continuous information flow across various departments and multiple stakeholders.

The technology vendor will provide a range of digital solutions and services to enable BIAL to create a fully digital office.

Under the contract, Datamatics will deploy its Business Process Management (BPM) and Integrated Document Management System (DMS).

The implementation of BPM and DMS as a Cloud-based solution will allow BIAL to digitally capture numerous data points.

BIAL chief development and strategy officer Satyaki Raghunath said: “The BLR Airport is amongst the fastest growing in the world and is an enabler of the tremendous economic growth in the region.

“As the airport emerges as the gateway to a new India, the solid experience and strong portfolio of digital solutions that Datamatics brings to the table will support this growth. We are confident that this partnership will enable us to scale our business and provide a world-class experience to our customers.”

Datamatics vice chairman and CEO Rahul Kanodia said: “BIAL manages one of the busiest international airports in India. Datamatics has a solid track record in the travel, transportation and logistics vertical and has successfully delivered several digital transformation projects across the world over.”

Last month, BIAL selected Unisys to integrate and manage all IT and non-IT systems for the first phase of KIA’s second terminal.

BIAL recently announced that it will open its newly constructed runway on 5 December to support the landing of Code F aircraft, including the Airbus-380, in all weather conditions.
