With the holiday season kicking into swing, travel is booming. According to PwC, almost half of all American consumers, 47 percent, plan to travel this holiday. And 46 percent of those travelers plan to fly, up from 40 percent last year. According to TSA numbers, that’s roughly 2 million people per day.
Luckily, some of the world’s largest and most complex transportation and logistics operators rely on TIBCO as a mission-critical tool to keep people and cargo moving from point A to point B quickly and reliably.
Aeroporti di Roma Soars to New Heights
With data integration, correlation, and enhanced real-time visibility, Aeroporti di Roma gained 360-degree insight into the traveler experience and the entire airport environment—enabling the airport to retake control of its operations and deliver better customer outcomes.
For example, passenger heat maps help the team proactively manage services to prevent long security lines while also enhancing retail services like food and shopping. An empowered airport control room anticipates operational issues that could result in bigger problems, putting Aeroporti di Roma in a position to predict and steer the outcome leading to a better traveler experience.
Norfolk Southern Keeps on Track
With TIBCO, Norfolk Southern implemented a digital nervous system that integrated technologies across its operations and transformed its business with analytic-driven insights. With real-time visibility across the entire train and network ecosystem, Norfolk Southern can monitor operations in real time—not only every train but every piece of cargo upon it.
With these precision insights, Norfolk Southern can better compete with the popular parcel delivery companies that have been known for their ability to provide delivery services with precise forecasting.
In addition, TIBCO technology enabled Norfolk Southern to decrease train idle time by 80 percent. With real-time operational insights, the train operator can respond and adapt quickly to environmental threats, such as floods and landslides, and continue to meet customer demands on schedule with full visibility.
Autostrade per l’Italia Races to Success
Autostrade per l’Italia, one of the leading concessionaires for the construction and management of toll motorways in Europe, needed a more robust view of construction and maintenance data to optimize its highway and business operations and minimize the impact of road construction on everyday drivers.
Using TIBCO Spotfire software, the team analyzes all traffic data—including data going back multiple decades—in its data lake for AI-driven maintenance analysis to prevent large road interruptions, such as maintenance activity during peak traffic times. The TIBCO platform also holistically manages all the data collected from every single highway event, such as car crashes, unexpected traffic jams, and changing volumes. Processes around analyzing traffic patterns that used to take up to 18 hours can now be done in mere seconds with TIBCO.
Travel Light with TIBCO
TIBCO helps these companies, and many more, stay on top of the holiday hustle. Whether it’s post offices, retailers, or product manufacturers, TIBCO keeps the lights on—and the data flowing—for many companies during the holiday season. So the next time you check your airline gate or look up tracking for your holiday parcel, know that complex software processes and data experts are behind all your smooth journeys.
