Schiphol Airport achieves integration success with USoft as a key enabler for an autonomous-running & event-driven airport
Schiphol is one of the global leaders when it comes to digitizing airports. At a digital airport, IT and data are at the heart of the primary process. With a focus on integrated airport operations and flight handling, the aims are twofold: to guide passengers through the airport as quickly and comfortably as possible, and to optimize logistical processes around baggage and cargo transport. The challenge in this is to let data support the operation in real-time and thus better control the processes across airport operations. One of the platforms Schiphol uses is USoft’s low-code platform.
Scalable integration platforms enable autonomous & event driven airport
Integration of data across a chain of applications, to unlock value from data
User-friendly software to build complex applications
“To create an autonomous & event-driven airport, you need integration technology. One of the technologies we use is USoft.”
Arie van der Veek, Technology Lead at Enabling Technology department of Schiphol Airport
“We ensure that the business can grab all the infrastructure building blocks right off the shelf to generate business value much more quickly. Only if you have the basics in order, you can quickly develop applications that are also ‘always on’: Available 24×7, robust and secure.”
Garbis van Okburcht, Senior Manager Enabling Technology at Schiphol
The need for a flexible, scalable and reliable technological foundation. This foundation is called Enabling Technology: technology building blocks that enable the business to develop and deploy all the applications they need.
Their IT landscape consists of a multitude of different scalable solutions with which you can build integrations; ‘liberation of integration’. USoft is a crucial part of this landscape, as it is how Schiphol implements both CEP (Complex Event Processing) and BRE (Business Rules Engine) capability.
User-friendly building blocks to develop complex applications. This will allow Schiphol to meet one of its goals to let data support the operation in real-time and thus better control the processes.
