Saab will leverage the layered application architecture of IFS Applications 9 to enable more efficient applications development and configuration at a lower total cost of ownership.
IFS, an enterprise applications company, announced that Saab has chosen to deploy IFS Applications 9 at its Aeronautics unit and South African operations. The agreement is valued at approximately SKr 11 million (US $1.2 million) in licenses, the company said in a statement Tuesday.
IFS Applications 9 will be deployed at Saab Aeronautics, the company’s unit for military and civil aviation technology, including the Gripen fighter system, which was recently purchased by the Brazilian Air Force. The agreement will also see IFS Applications 9 deployed at Saab Grintek Defence in South Africa.
As part of a major IT efficiency improvement program, Saab will leverage the layered application architecture of IFS Applications 9 to deploy a future-proof and highly scalable platform that allows for a multivendor delivery model. This will enable increased efficiency of application management support and upgrade services.
“We became interested in IFS Applications 9 and its capabilities to help global enterprises ensure improved cost efficiency,” Saab CIO Mats Hultin said.
IFS Scandinavia CEO Glenn Arnesen commented, “Flexibility is a fundamental principle for us, and the layered application architecture of IFS Applications 9 provides a new level of openness that is ideal for Saab.”
