Oneworld Integrates New Member Airlines Into The Alliance With Cloud Hub Powered By Dell Boomi

Stocks in this article: DELL

Dell Boomi today announced that oneworld ®, the premier global airline alliance, has implemented a new information technology (IT) hub based on Dell Boomi AtomSphere cloud integration, designed to substantially reduce the complexity, cost and time involved in linking new member airlines into the alliance.

oneworld looked into developing a hub for linking member airlines’ IT systems several times in the past, but traditional integration technology made the cost and complexity too great. With Dell Boomi AtomSphere, oneworld is now able to create a hub and spoke-modeled data exchange in the cloud. This simplifies data integration between new and existing member airlines, which can lead to substantial time and cost savings for member airlines and reducing cost barriers for new recruits to the alliance.

“The development of this hub is one of the most significant alliance IT developments since oneworld was established more than a decade ago,” said oneworld IT Director Jouni Naskali. “Thanks to the latest cloud integration technology from Dell Boomi, the IT hub dramatically speeds up and simplifies the addition of new airlines to the alliance, making the entire process substantially more efficient and cost effective – both for the new joiners and for our established carriers.”

The oneworld IT hub will be used initially to integrate the frequent flyer programs IT systems of existing and new member airlines. Historically, linking the data from frequent flyer programs was one of the most challenging, time consuming and expensive parts of bringing a new airline into the oneworld alliance. oneworld needed to simplify the data exchange process and entrusted Dell Boomi, the world’s largest integration cloud.

Dell Boomi simplifies the data exchange for oneworld, helping them move away from a complex web of data exchange processes among alliance members. The new IT hub allows new member airlines to quickly integrate their IT systems into the alliance, helps strategic partners to set up relationships with several oneworld carriers and enables all member airlines to make enhancements to their frequent flyer programs that register across member programs.

“The elegance of cloud-based integration with Dell Boomi AtomSphere allowed us to create a new model for the oneworld IT hub, efficiently connecting data between all member programs, regardless of where they were located or what type of IT applications they were running,” said Rick Nucci, Dell Boomi general manager. “This solution means time and cost savings for all oneworld airlines linking new members and other strategic partners into hub.”
