In May 2010, Emirates Group decided to create a service-oriented platform that could host multiple travel-related business systems. Across 16 projects, the goal was to save millions in development and running costs, while also significantly simplifying the application portfolio by eliminating redundant components and interfaces. The entire platform would run on open source software.
Within a year, the Open Travel Platform was live at Emirates Group, with the first application offering sophisticated travel planning and booking services via emirates.com.
Join us for this informative session to hear the Emirates story:

An interesting webinar scheduled for tomorrow with our partner Layer 7.
In an increasingly complex IT landscape, successful business execution depends upon the rapid creation of flexible connections between widely distributed environments and disparate application interfaces. This new connectivity paradigm brings about new challenges in management, integration, and security. Extending this architecture to the cloud only complicates matters further and introduces new concerns around access control, data security, and integration of new formats and protocols. This Webinar given by Layer 7 Technologies and Red Hat will explore the combination of a SOA Gateway and an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) to provide a comprehensive, standards-based, secure approach to governing integration across the enterprise and into the cloud.
