Brazilian airline Gol Linhas Aereas has begun changing over its business software to provider SAP this week, as its intense cost-cutting campaign reaches an information technology budget consuming 1.3 percent of revenue.

By the end of next year, Gol plans to have finished the transition away from a platform provided by Oracle, the airline's vice-president for technology Paulo Sica told Reuters in an interview.
