Amadeus IT Group is a leading IT provider in the travel industry, processing 525 million bookings per year and boarding 700 million passengers on its airline IT systems.

Amadeus Travel Intelligence is leveraging big data to help all parties in the travel industry make more effective and quicker decisions.
We will show how Amadeus Travel Intelligence employs open source technologies to achieve its objective: processing based on Hadoop; visualization layer based on Ruby-on-Rails and HTML5; streaming based on Spark and Flink; and API level access through web-services. We will review typical project requirements and our experiences, such as the pitfalls of immature projects, missing functionalities, and communities that have moved on.
