Fortunately, I’m not alone. Every day, we read in the press and on social media the powerful use of big data in achieving substantial cost savings and delivering improved traveler satisfaction. Across the entire travel cycle, we see how the emergence of these cutting-edge technologies provide real-time data analyses and forecasting capabilities, allowing travel industry players to do things now that had never been considered before. Big data is also today’s most powerful ingredient in the ongoing battle for competitive differentiation and personalization.
Amadeus is uniquely positioned to drive these technologies through our strong relationships across all channels of the travel ecosystem and entrepreneurial spirit where we constantly ask ourselves “what if…” and then challenge our team of developers and data scientists to find the answers. It is in this spirit of exploring possibilities that Amadeus is sponsoring the Data Access and Analytics Education Pillar at this year’s ACTE Global Education Conference in Atlanta. The lineup of topics and speakers at this year’s event is sure to spark ideas within all of us. We hope you join the discussion at the following data-related sessions:
- Protecting Your Company’s Data and Traveler Privacy with Dr. Jane LeClair, COO, National Cybersecurity Institute at Excelsior College
- Beyond Big & Smart: The Next Big Trend in Data Analysis
- Leveraging Your Data
