Air Transport World and ARINC are sponsoring a webcast November 30 titled "Industrial Strength Internet: Can Mission Critical be Agile?"
Adoption of Internet-based technology in the aviation industry has been hampered by the prevalence of legacy applications and requirements for higher levels of security, reliability and performance than the Internet has provided in the past. While the Internet is a part of consumer-facing services and used heavily on the distribution side of the business, adoption for applications that support operations has been slower.For more information and to sign up for this event, click here.
Increasing momentum in the migration from legacy infrastructure, trends toward broader outsourcing of IT applications and development of new applications—such as eTicketing, eFreight, and advanced passenger information reporting—have created a perfect storm for increased adoption of Internet technology.
This Webcast will focus on how the highly integrated, mission-critical, communications-intensive air transport industry can benefit from the lower cost, ubiquity and increased agility that Internet technology can deliver. The focus will be on how broadband Internet and XML-based application technologies like Web Services are changing the landscape for networking and applications.
