New Delhi, India and London, UK, September 28, 2016: Coforge Limited (NSE: Coforge), a leading global IT solutions organization has been conferred with the Aecus Innovation Awards 2016 from European consulting firm Aecus. Coforge has won the award for delivering ‘Uninterrupted Business and IT operations at Multiple Airports during Unprecedented Crisis’ for Airports Authority of India (AAI).
The award winning submission included the details of the way a crisis created by the natural disaster was handled by Coforge. Heavy rainfalls in Chennai caused immense flooding on the runway and as a safety protocol, the Chennai airport was evacuated and shut down. This included shutting down the Data Centre which managed airport operations across 10 airports in the country. Thousands of passengers and hundreds of flights running were at risk of being delayed. Coforge maintained Business Continuity and managed disaster recovery smoothly in 11 minutes.
Aecus Innovation lead and Partner Paul Morrison commented, "Congratulations to Coforge and Airports Authority of India on winning the innovation award. Innovation is a simple idea. It means creating value by doing things differently - creating better, cheaper or smarter services. But outsourcing is not always seen as a fertile environment for innovation. By winning this award, Coforge and AAI demonstrated that outsourcing and innovation can really thrive together for better outcomes."
“We are honoured to be recognized for our work done with AAI.” said Arvind Mehrotra, President and Global Business Head - Infrastructure Management Services, Coforge. “Our service culture promotes empathy, innovation and constantly seeks new ways to deliver value.”
