Managing the knock-on impact of the airport strike

Dr Giles Nelson, a computer scientist from the University of Cambridge who is now deputy CTO of Progress Software, a company that develops technologies that solve issues around the knock-on impact of these ‘irregular airline operations’ talks of managing the knock-on impact of the airport strikes. “Following the ash cloud earlier this year, this latest strike action has the potential to cause even more risk and disruption to holidaymakers and the air travel business as a whole. Strikes such as this will always cause misery for passengers and airlines alike.”

“Managing the knock-on impact of these ‘irregular operations’ requires airlines to have fully integrated processes that can spot unusual patterns in real-time, and react to them. Using the technology principles currently in play to analyse transactions in the financial markets to prevent fraud could help save airlines millions in lost time, custom and hard cash.” Giles Nelson, deputy CTO of Progress Software
