Architecture Monthly Magazine: Travel and Hospitality

In our Travel and Hospitality issue, we feature several customers: Southwest Airlines, American Airlines, Wyndham, Meliá, Just Eat Take Away, Domino’s, KFC, and more. We also have some great articles from NLX, IBS, Elenium, Datalex – our T&H competency partners. Through blogs and case studies, you’ll see how the double challenge of the pandemic and downturn has been faced and addressed with creative solutions.

We’re also adding a new segment this month, Customer Conversations. We are excited to publish this new content and unique perspective.

We’d like to thank Kim Macaulay, Head of Data, Quality and Governance, IATA, Sekhar Mallipeddi, Tech Leader, Travel and Hospitality, AWS (our Expert for this issue), and Bonnie McClure, our technical editor, for their contributions to this issue. We hope you find it useful and informative.
