American Airlines Achieves Greater Efficiency in the Face of Change

We went from capitalizing 10 percent of our IT labor to 20 percent, which equated to a multi-million-dollar net positive depreciation impact on our balance sheet.

Challenge

With the US Airways merger came an overlap in technology and programs that needed integrating. The IT system integration posed three challenges: the company had 3,000 technology resources, more than 2,000 IT system integration projects, and a rigid integration schedule, clearly highlighting a classic supply versus demand dilemma.  American Airlines needed an adaptable tool to better understand IT project demand and resource management.
