How The Cloud Will Be Critical For Airline Success

As we continue to move forward in the age of cloud technology, more businesses will need to keep the pace by adapting the cloud into their infrastructure. The International Air Transport Association highlighted their annual growth in global air traffic passenger demand which shows that demand has been increasing by about 7% every year since 2006. Passenger numbers are expected to double to 8.2 billion people by 2037. This rapid growth in demand will be incredibly taxing on Airline on-premise servers, which are quickly becoming obsolete as maintenance costs rise,  operational efficiency decreases, and customers expect more for less in a quick and timely manner. The cloud has become an essential business driver that must be adopted to keep up with demand and lower costs.

Here are some of the many benefits that Airlines can utilize with the cloud:

  • Allow seamless connectivity between front, middle, and back office operations
  • Increased operational efficiency
  • Reduced total cost of ownership
  • Pay per use model
  • No capital expenditure on IT infrastructure
  • No on-premise maintenance costs
  • Cut costs on data center technicians or remove them entirely
  • Safeguards and backup on the cloud
  • A single source to help mediate customer demands
