Succsessful linkage of the mainframe-based TUI-booking system with the internet-based travel agency booking system CETS
TUI InfoTec is a tourism focussed IT-service provider within the TUI-Group, Europe’s leading tourism company. The TUI-Group includes over 200 tourism businesses – from travel agencies, to tour organizers and airlines, to hotel associations. In this sector, information technology is a key factor for success: complex data must be integrated and various systems within the groups need to be linked together.
The goal of this project was the establishment of a platform-neutral and structured interface for the TUI-booking system, based on XML, that would allow links with any desired system (including links via TUI-Internet access).
