Success Stories: FreeSoft Case Study: TUI Travel - Germany


Tool-based Data and Application Migration from Sybase and C++ to Oracle and JAVA

The Client

TUI Travel PLC is a leading international leisure travel group which operates in approximately 180 countries worldwide and serves more than 30 million customers in over 25 source markets.

Headquartered in Crawley, near Gatwick airport in the UK, the Group employs approximately 50,000 people and operates a pan-European airline consisting of over 150 aircraft.

The company mainly serves the leisure travel customer and is organised and managed through four business sectors:

Mainstream, Specialist & Emerging Markets, Activity and Accommodation & Destinations. In the financial year ended 30 September 2008 TUI Travel had revenues of £13.9bn and an underlying profit before tax of £320m.

The Project

In 2003 FreeSoft was contracted by TUI in Germany to migrate TUI’s reservation system which is used by the mobile sales agents.

The same application runs in two environments; on the centralized server and on the laptops of the mobile agents.

TUI’s reservation system is written in C++ and JAVA using database stored procedure as the data access method to data stored. Sales agents needed the same application as the one on the server on their laptops with an ability to support off-line reservations.
