Scandinavian airline SAS is using Tibco's enterprise service bus software to help share and re-use new applications, data and services with legacy applications.
SAS aims to use this software to decrease IT complexities and maintenance costs. The airline hopes this will improve its global operations and customer service.
Ingvar Söderlund, CIO and vice-president, SAS, said, "The key to happier customers, more efficient operations and a better bottom line for the airline is having the ability to move data, services or information updates from one system to another in real-time.
“This helps airlines quickly minimise any knock-on effects from delays and shortfalls, which is where the power of Tibco's integration solutions provides intrinsic value."
The SAS integration project, comprising Tibco Enterprise Message Service and Tibco BusinessWorks, is designed so the airline carrier can bring together all of its logistics and resource management systems to allow booking, staff deployment and equipment scheduling information to be shared more effectively across the business. It also aims to reduce time-to-market of new products and services.
SAS chose Tibco based on a successful track record within the airline carrier. During the past six years, Tibco has implemented a number of deployments including solutions for enterprise application integration, messaging, integration manager and platform adaptor solutions. SAS also uses Tibco technology to integrate its mainframe with other applications.
