Fiorano Real-time Data Integration Opens New Areas of Opportunity for Hospitality Leader Delaware North

Fiorano provides integration backbone for delivering data on single gateway

"Our partners and clients love the speed at which we get data back to them and the near-real-time analytics it can provide. This enables them to judge the efficacy of their marketing campaigns, assess operational efficiency and make adjustments to improve top line revenues. "Fiorano professional services act as an extension to our team for both new development and support. Fiorano's development team is very responsive, with changes to functionality turned around sometimes within a week, which would be unheard of with larger vendors. This allows my team to keep our focus on architecture and design."

Manager of the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA)
Solutions Team at Delaware North

March 17, 2015, Palo Alto, California. Fiorano Software, a leader in enterprise integration middleware solutions, announced that the Fiorano platform was deployed at Delaware North to integrate disparate systems and to aggregate and enable real-time data processing.

Serving half-a-billion guests a year across four continents, innovation and world-class hospitality management define Delaware North. Having data in the right format and at the right time is critical to the company's customer business decisions. The high cost and inherent inflexibility of point-to-point integrations coupled with the need to improve business efficiencies and provide higher value information to its customers prompted Delaware North to evaluate new technology approaches.

After researching various technology choices, the Delaware North team settled on utilizing an Enterprise Service Bus technology to implement a cohesive and integrated IT architecture. Following a Proof-of-Concept, Fiorano ESB was selected for its ease of use, peer-to-peer scalable architecture and robust, enterprise class platform features.

Going forward Delaware North intends to steadily extend the SOA infrastructure across its global locations to ready its systems for today's highly connected and digitized economy, enabling change management and responsiveness to business conditions in real time.
