Amadeus earns recognition as ‘Cloud innovator of the year’

Eric Mountain

Senior Expert, Distributed Systems, Amadeus IT Group

A year ago my colleagues and I launched what is perhaps the perfect example of what is possible with open source technology in our Amadeus Cloud Services solution. Today, our team couldn’t be more proud and honoured to be awarded as the ‘Cloud innovator of the year’ by open source solutions provider Red Hat for our use of their OpenShift Enterprise technology.

Red Hat’s Innovation Awards honour customers and partners for the outstanding and innovative use of their solutions. For this year’s awards, nominations were received with judges selecting one winning project in six categories that exemplified the most innovative achievements used to answer complex IT challenges with Red Hat solutions.

This recognition is the ultimate validation of the hard work and countless hours that the smart, innovative, agile team of developers across Amadeus have put into this ground-breaking project.

How Amadeus Cloud Services work

Amadeus Cloud Services allows our solutions to run on our own global private cloud as well as on multiple public cloud providers. This container-based cloud solution decreases system latency to enable better customer service, increase platform availability, streamline operations through automation, and reduce time to market for new services.

Through this technology, we’ve developed the Amadeus Airline Cloud Availability solution, which solves the challenge of ever increasing flight search volumes. We’re also using Amadeus Cloud Services as the foundation for our collaboration with InterContinental Hotel Group (IHG) to develop a next-generation Guest Reservation System (GRS), revolutionising the technological foundations of the global hospitality industry with the first of its kind, standardised, scalable and flexible global technology eco-system.
