The past 6th of june, at the Aeronautics and Space College (EIAE) of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid. UPM (Spain), my book titled, “State of-the-Art of IT technologies applied to Airports”, published by Isdefewere presented (spanish language link) by:

  • Miguel Ángel Gómez Tierno. Director of the EIAE. UPM.
  • Miguel Ángel Oleaga Zufiria, the former Madrid-Barajas Airport (from 2001 to march 2013).

The book collects the experience, mine and of my Isdefe’s colleagues, in the application of integration technologies at airports. The main topcis are: SOA / ESB, information model, Integration project approach, airport procedures, competence centers, dashboards and the introduction of new technologies in the field of BPM and CEP. It is also intended for the Airport’s Managerial Staff for reducing the gap with the IT staff about the possibilities of the technology for delivering new services, reducing costs and for generating more revenues.

A simple event can raise delays not only in the airport, but it will cause delays in other networked airports. It’s familiar to you the Captain’s apologize. “We are sorry for the departure’s delay, it is caused due a ‘late’ arrival of the previous flight…”
