The third largest airline group in Europe and parent company to British Airways, International Airlines Group, made employee collaboration a priority and picked Office 365 through a Microsoft Enterprise Agreement (EA) to connect its 58,000 employees around the world. With more than 230 global destinations, Office 365 will help employees share information regardless of business unit or location. Its migration to Office 365’s social tools will also enable the company to respond to market changes and quickly understand customer feedback.

The Microsoft EA solution provides access to the critical enterprise services the company requires including: Office 365, Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, Lync Online and Yammer.

According to the announcement, Nigel Underwood, chief information officer, IAG, mentioned, “Office 365 will allow employees to collaborate and achieve their work tasks regardless of the platform, product or device. This is an excellent example of IAG enabling change within the group to create a common IT platform for our airlines which will be more efficient and reduce our costs.”
