Airports Offers Model of
How to Innovate
Outside stakeholders and partners are not
just a group to be communicated with - they
can often drive improvements in the port
industry through their own expertise.
Systems engineering consulting and
contracting firm Birdi & Associates, Inc.
considers itself a partner of Long Beach
Airport, providing on-call services for the
airport's technology infrastructure. So
when one of the airport's contractors gave
the airport extremely short notice that it
was going to discontinue its flight information display system, the airport called
Birdi & Associates for support. Because the
company has a strong balance of design/
build and software development capabilities, they could mobilize quickly and
efficiently. Within 10 days, the company
built a software-as-a-service solution that
is saving its client money and is the industry's first cloud-based flight information
display system.
"When you create an impossible environment and pressure cooker situation, it forces
innovation," said Birdi & Associates, Inc.
Principal Moninder Birdi.
