Travelling is restricted under the pandemic but this will not last forever and tech companies are planning for the future when businesspeople and holidayers can take to the sky again. Travel service company Amadeus and Microsoft announced a global strategic partnership to collaborate across the travel industry to create hyper-personalized services.
The companies said they will
- Foster collaboration across the entire travel industry to create new hyper-personalized services and industry offerings tailored to the unique needs of the travel ecosystem.
- Focus on joint innovation and product development, together bringing expertise and agile development capabilities to envision, design and deliver cutting-edge travel solutions offering more relevant and sophisticated end-user experiences. This will also mean coordinated go-to-market strategies that leverage Amadeus’ and Microsoft’s respective footprint and capabilities.
- Accelerate the move of Amadeus’ technical platform to the public cloud, leveraging Microsoft Azure technology foundations for even greater agility and resiliency. This will in turn enable deployment across Azure’s many regions for optimized operations worldwide. Microsoft will become Amadeus’ preferred cloud provider.
