Gulf Air has partnered with TransSys Solutions in a bid to enhance its Oracle Ebusiness Suite capabilities.
The airline hired Dubai-based networking company TransSys in order to help boost its ebusiness capabilities with innovations such as mobile and hybrid cloud technologies.
Gulf Air prides itself on being one of the more tech-savvy airlines out there. It plans on integrating its already-existing cloud technology with content from other providers in order to create a hybrid cloud.
The Executive Director of TransSys Solutions, Prabu Balasubramanyan, said: “We are happy to partner with Gulf Air on their digitisation journey. This partnership further strengthens our presence in the aviation sector and our pursuit to expand our service offering globally. We have successfully leveraged our experience and expertise of having worked with over 15 airlines.”
The Director Information Technology for Gulf Air, Dr. Jassim Haji, said that the new hybrid cloud technology would offer several benefits for the company, including the flexibility to access data from anywhere at any time, greater data security, and reduced costs for a globalised workforce.
Gulf Air is the national airline of Bahrain, serving 39 cities in 22 countries. It was established in 1950, making it one of the longest-running airlines in the Middle East. It is the sponsor of the Gulf Air Bahrain Formula One Grand Prix.
TransSys was founded in 2010 and mostly operates in the Middle East and Africa, with its development centres in India. It is an Oracle Platinum Partner and has provided application development and ebusiness solutions across a number of different sectors, including airlines, financial services, real estate, telecoms, retail and distribution.
