Expedia Group Innovates Across Multiple Tech Stacks Using AWS
Founded in 1996, Expedia Group is a technology company that powers global travel for travelers around the world. Today, it connects more than 50,000 business-to-business partners representing some of the world’s largest companies, including hotels, airlines, and financial institutions.
In this video, Expedia Group (EG) chief technology officer (CTO) and president of Expedia Product & Technology Rathi Murthy shares how EG scaled through acquisition, which stifled innovation across tech stacks and directly impacted its travelers and partners. Murthy explains how EG modernized its infrastructure on Amazon Web Services (AWS) by migrating applications to a container-based platform.
Using AWS, EG serves up relevant photos and reviews for each traveler at sub-millisecond latency and with more than 99 percent accuracy on a platform that processes over 600 billion artificial intelligence (AI) predictions a year powered by 70 petabytes of data. Murthy delivers insights on EG's journey to transform its technology platform and the travel industry—along with sharing personal experiences
We also use AI/ML to run over 360,000 permutations of one page on one of our brand sites, which means that every time a traveler comes to our site, they see what is most relevant to them.”
