TUI Group Migrates to Scalable Cloud Platform Using AWS

TUI began building on Amazon Web Services (AWS) in 2017 to migrate its northern region selling platform from on premises to the cloud using Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), AWS Lambda, AWS Config, and AWS KMS. AWS is the primary cloud provider for TUI, which chose AWS for its economy of scale, maturity of products, and the level of support that AWS offers. Migrating to the cloud helped TUI deliver updates to users faster while reducing the time to introduce new features to its platform, scale globally, and help the TUI teams experiment and speed innovation.
