Allegiant Systems Inc. dévoile FlyDesk™, une solution pour tablette mobile révolutionnaire pour automatiser les opérations aériennes

LAS VEGAS, 27 novembre 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Ces cinq dernières années, l'industrie aéronautique s'est métamorphosée, tant en termes d'exploitation que de modèle économique. Les compagnies aériennes recherchent des moyens de limiter les coûts tout en optimisant la rentabilité et l'efficacité. Allegiant Systems Inc. a annoncé aujourd'hui le lancement de FlyDesk™, une solution logicielle dématérialisée à destination des entreprises, permettant aux compagnies aériennes d'automatiser les processus en vol, augmenter les opportunités économiques et améliorer l'expérience du voyageur, sans induire de coûts supplémentaires.

Au cours de ces dernières années, les iPad ont intégré les vols des compagnies américaines Alaska, American et United afin d'être testés ; 30 000 pilotes ont d'ores et déjà recours à cette technologie en vol. FlyDesk est la première solution clé en main apportant à la fois les ressources logicielles et matérielles nécessaires pour aider les compagnies aériennes à répondre à des projets d'automatisation complexes grâce à la technologie des tablettes iPad.

« L'automatisation des services à bord compte parmi les domaines les plus difficiles à traiter de manière efficace et rentable », explique Joe Ayson, directeur marketing et de développement de l'entreprise chez Allegiant Systems. « Grâce à la récente autorisation réglementaire de la technologie des tablettes appliquée à l'aviation et à son efficacité démontrée en tant que outil pour limiter les coûts et optimiser la productivité, FlyDesk est synonyme pour les compagnies aériennes de solution mobile sécurisée, sans investissement de capitaux important. »

À l'origine, FlyDesk assiste le personnel navigant dans leurs opérations via FlyDesk Cabin, qui numérise les manuels, automatise la communication d'informations et offre des services de courriers électroniques sécurisés. FlyDesk Cabin a été conçu pour répondre aux besoins spécifiques des compagnies aériennes, tout en créant une activité « sans papier », réduisant le poids à bord, facilitant les mises à jour et optimisant les économies en carburant et les coûts. Quatre compagnies aériennes prévoient d'adopter la solution FlyDesk Cabin sur l'ensemble de leur flotte en décembre 2012.

« Nous sommes conscients de la difficulté soulevée par la gestion d'un système automatisé entièrement mobile pour le personnel navigant », commente Andrew Kemmetmueller, PDG d'Allegiant Systems. « Grâce à FlyDesk Cabin, les compagnies aériennes pourront garder leur personnel navigant connecté et leurs appareils sécurisés et à jour, indépendamment de leur localisation géographique. »

Cette solution n'est que la première sur la liste ; Allegiant Systems prévoit d'annoncer de nombreux autres flyServices, offrant tous des opportunités économiques optimisées pour les compagnies aériennes, avec un déploiement plus rapide, un développement sans effort et des services continus.

The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.
Today’s connected world is moving from devices towards things, what this means is that by using increasingly low cost sensors embedded in devices we can create many new use cases. These span across use cases in cities, vehicles, home, offices, factories, retail environments, worksites, health, logistics, and health. These use cases rely on ubiquitous connectivity and generate massive amounts of data at scale. These technologies enable new business opportunities, ways to optimize and automate, along with new ways to engage with users.
The buzz continues for cloud, data analytics and the Internet of Things (IoT) and their collective impact across all industries. But a new conversation is emerging - how do companies use industry disruption and technology enablers to lead in markets undergoing change, uncertainty and ambiguity? Organizations of all sizes need to evolve and transform, often under massive pressure, as industry lines blur and merge and traditional business models are assaulted and turned upside down. In this new data-driven world, marketplaces reign supreme while interoperability, APIs and applications deliver un...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....
You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud without worrying about any lock-in fears. In fact by having standard APIs for IaaS would help PaaS expl...

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, will look at different existing uses of peer-to-peer data sharing and how it can become useful in a live session to...

"Matrix is an ambitious open standard and implementation that's set up to break down the fragmentation problems that exist in IP messaging and VoIP communication," explained John Woolf, Technical Evangelist at Matrix, in this interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Nowadays, a large number of sensors and devices are connected to the network. Leading-edge IoT technologies integrate various types of sensor data to create a new value for several business decision scenarios. The transparent cloud is a model of a new IoT emergence service platform. Many service providers store and access various types of sensor data in order to create and find out new business values by integrating such data.
The broad selection of hardware, the rapid evolution of operating systems and the time-to-market for mobile apps has been so rapid that new challenges for developers and engineers arise every day. Security, testing, hosting, and other metrics have to be considered through the process. In his session at Big Data Expo, Walter Maguire, Chief Field Technologist, HP Big Data Group, at Hewlett-Packard, will discuss the challenges faced by developers and a composite Big Data applications builder, focusing on how to help solve the problems that developers are continuously battling.
Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target - this makes the integration of these separate pipelines and the coordination of software upd...
Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, will discuss the impact of technology on identity. Should we federate, or not? How should identity be secured? Who owns the identity? How is identity ...
