The Houston Airport System provides a safe and dynamic air services network that fosters economic vitality for the transportation industry and facilitates a strong level of global connectivity for diverse and growing population living throughout the greater Houston region. Airports managed include George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) which had nearly 42 million passengers in 2016; William P. Hobby Airport (HOU), which had nearly 13 million passengers in 2016; and Ellington Airport (EFD)/Houston Spaceport, which supports the operations of the U.S. military, NASA and a variety of general aviation tenants. Collectively the three-airport system served almost 55 million passengers in 2016.
HAS needed real-time insights into airport performance, such as aircraft taxi times, arrival and departure rates, reasons for delays, incidents, and carrier specific information.
iOLAP proposed a new architectural change to facilitate higher scalability for processing and integrating large amount of data from disparate sources. iOLAP is integrating data with Enterprise Voice, thus delivering a natural interface for data queries that can be accessed by a mobile airport management team.
HAS infrastructure will support any workload regardless of volume, velocity, and variety of data. The new solution approach provides higher scalability, stability and improved performance with low cost.
