Amadeus Cloud Services has been recognised as “cloud innovator of the year” by open source solutions provider Red Hat.
Introduced a year ago, Cloud Services is supported by an open source project Amadeus developed in collaboration with Red Hat on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.
Red Hat Innovation Awards honour customers and partners for their outstanding and innovative use of Red Hat solutions.
Amadeus will receive the award this week at the 2016 Red Hat Summit in San Francisco.
Amadeus Airline Cloud Availability was developed in the period using Amadeus Cloud Services technology. The solution claims to solve the challenge of ever increasing flight search volumes.
Airline ‘look-to-book’ ratios – average number of search requests before a flight booking is actually made – were previously as low as 10:1. Today, these can easily run to 1,000:1.
Amadeus Airline Cloud Availability was piloted by Lufthansa in 2015, easily absorbing a 20 fold increase in transaction volumes. The solution is now in production with Lufthansa.
Amadeus is also using Amadeus Cloud Services as the foundation for its collaboration with InterContinental Hotel Group to develop a next-generation Guest Reservation System.
Dietmar Fauser, Amadeus vice president architecture, quality and governance, said: “We are very proud to receive this award, recognising how Amadeus Cloud Services is shaping the future of travel through technology.
“We have publicly adopted an industry-defining cloud strategy to help our customers achieve rapid time to market, better scalability and improved performance.
“Through Amadeus Cloud Services, our solutions are also available to run on our own global private cloud as well as on multiple public cloud providers depending on customer choice and business need.”
