Any firm setting out its future growth strategy today cannot do so without embracing digital transformation – and the aviation business is no exception. In 2014 Dublin-based Ryanair, one of the largest airlines in the world by passenger numbers, embarked on an ambitious programme that sought to put data at the heart of its growth ambitions. As in banking and other industries, reaping the benefits of digital means a change in strategic approach, a change in the way of thinking – a change in mindset.
How Ryanair has put digital at the heart of its growth ambitions.
