The other day I was thinking about flying (yeah I know I am a sick person – travel all the time and then sit around thinking about traveling).
Continental airlines recently joined the star alliance. In order to support this change they have had to change their FF system to allow for OnePass (their system) and Star Alliance (United et al’s system) to mix and mingle (and of course vice versa).
Truly this joining of two solutions together is a mix and match cloud solution.
The scope of effort (announcement until fate accompli – 9 months- not sure why i am stuck with French today) was huge.
Amazing – and it works seamlessly.
Cloud computing at its best.
