Amadeus is shaping the future of travel with its commitment to innovation, by delivering extremely high performance transaction processing through the use of open systems with Amadeus Cloud Services
, and by pioneering the production and development of advanced technologies such as NoSQL and Distributed Systems.
There are many examples of how Amadeus travel technology helps businesses connect to the global travel ecosystem, manage operations more effectively and serve travellers better than ever. For instance, we are helping the traveller overcome the frustration and stress of flight disruption with Amadeus Personal Disruption Companion,
we are building a brand new generation of hotel reservation systems that will be a new standard for the entire industry, and we are ensuring a seamless and more efficient airport experience for all passengers with our cutting edge airport common use technology.
This investment in R&D also enables seamless customer implementation activity related to the contracted pipeline in Alta, standalone and e-commerce solutions.
The European Commission has recognised Amadeus as the number one European R&D investor in the travel and tourism sector as part of its annual EU Industrial R&D Investment Scoreboard. The scoreboard, which examines R&D investment by both European and worldwide companies, ranks companies based on total R&D investment.
Executive Vice President of Research & Development at Amadeus said:
“It’s a privilege to receive this recognition from the EC. Our R&D team is over 5,000-people strong and between 2004 and the end of 2014 we have invested over €3.5billion in total R&D across Amadeus. However, what is most important is the fact that thanks to these investments we are improving the travel experience – from managing flight disruptions to streamlining the process for booking a passenger’s ticket online. And making this difference is what drives our passion to continue shaping the future of travel.”
“We want to be recognised as the best R&D team in travel to support the continued growth of the company. At the same time we are driven by our ambition to be the very best in innovation & quality and the most reliable in delivery. We are a global team of very talented people that together work to create the solutions our industry and our customers demand.”
