Budget airline, Scoot, is using the Boomi integration platform to help share data across the expanding organisation, allowing it to adapt more quickly to changing market conditions and therefore improve passenger experiences.
Scoot, the low-cost arm of Singapore Airlines, operates a global network of 66 cities across 18 countries and territories across Asia-Pacific, Europe and the United States, offering customers a cheaper alternative for travel. The company said it relies on extensive data generated from its customers’ bookings and various internal systems to provide these affordable services.
“Boomi gives us a dedicated, cloud-based integration tool that aligns to our all-cloud strategy, and is therefore able to handle the high volumes of system-to-system data transfer that our business model requires,” said Jason Chin, VP – Information Technology at Scoot.
“With the various features the platform provides, we will be able to connect our entire organisation to create a single source for our data, with the knowledge that this information is up to date and accurate. We will then be able to better understand our business and customers, and deliver the products and services that passengers want – before, during and after their flights.”
Scoot implemented the low-code Boomi integration platform to replace a series of outdated connectors which did not provide the level of automated data management the organisation required. The airline said its former integrations limited communication between Scoot’s systems and restricted access to data, inhibiting the potential of its sharing capabilities. These bespoke integrations were also code-heavy, consequently demanding substantial maintenance.
This has been particularly beneficial amid Scoot’s expansion – the airline has grown from 20-plus to 60 routes following the consolidation of TigerAir into the Scoot brand – accelerating the organisation’s time to market despite the significant increase in customers and employees.
Scoot has also been able to achieve this while maintaining its IT resources – as Boomi does not require the consistent upkeep of traditional integration technologies, it allows Scoot to achieve more with less.
