AIRLINES: ORACLE AIRLINE DATA MODEL (OADM) - AN OVERVIEW

 

This is one industry that carries the potential of ‘jet-age’ and relies on ‘jet-speed’ – literally! Yes, we are talking about the airlines industry that juxtaposes technology and hospitality to connect people and countries together and continues to be one of the most competitive fields in the world. Airlines companies engaged in operating international; national; regional and cargo flights have to face so many challenges like keeping competition at bay; meeting the escalating expenses and at the same time providing enough cost – effective incentives that will keep the customers happy. It is easy to read about these challenges, but it is so very difficult to meet them. ‘Flying high’, is truly not an easy task!

 

Since every stage of the airlines industry relies on technology and airline companies, it is imperative for  them to have access to such modules and programmes that ‘combines deep airline market expertise with industry-leading technology’. They have to study the market; read what the competitors are doing and conduct researches on a daily basis to find out which technology will enable them to offer the value-for-money and value-added services to the customers and also reduce the pressure of high costs at their end.

 

And this is exactly where Oracle Airlines Data Model (OADM) comes in!
