SAP said that Flybe, Europe’s regional airline and the UK’s number one domestic carrier, is using SAP Business Intelligence software, SAP Business Objects EDGE Xi 3.1, to help deliver the information users need to enable them to become independent in their data usage and analysis.
The SAP offering will enable Flybe to manage the huge amount of data on a daily basis, as the carrier operates from a total of 71 departure points across the UK and Europe.
The new offering provides Flybe with comprehensive business intelligence content, a scalable licensing model and flexible implementation path.
Flybe business intelligence manager Quinton Davies said SAP Business Objects EDGE was a perfect fit for them – not only does it offer mature BI tools but it has the flexibility to grow with them.
"Essentially, it allows us to move away from having access to static information to being able to use the data in an informed and intelligent way, delivering the right information to the right people, at the right time," Davies said.
Flybe is now able to provide new methods to access real time views of the business and operational activity, being able to share intelligence, insight and visibility across the business and using BI applications to build connections between disparate parts of the business.
"Now that we have mature business intelligence tools, users are able to design new ways of looking at data, allowing them to understand and react to their environments in a way that suits their individual needs," Davies said.
