Athens International Airport chose Oracle Consulting to replace heart-of-business infrastructure with a futureproof solution, Oracle Database Exadata Cloud at Customer, and design new services and concepts to enrich the experience of the passengers. Watch the video here


We needed to replace aging core heart of business infrastructure with a futureproof solution, and the Oracle products provided just that. Coupled with Oracle Consulting services we now feel safe for the future. Says Mr. George Demetriades, Director IT&T business unit, Athens International Airport S.A.

"Athens International Airport is the metropolitan airport of Greece serving its capital, Athens.  It is an airport that has been in operation since 2000 and currently serves about 22 million passengers.  Last year it served 21.7 million  (2017).  This year we expect to have a little bit over 22 million passengers.  We can now serve up to 26 million, and we are already planning for the next step which is being able to host up to 30 million passengers annually, coming through the airport of Athens.
Cloud at Customer solutions will first of all provide us with a huge saving on infrastructure.  We will save on data centre costs.  We will save on operational costs.  We will become greener, and we will have security at the level of the database which is very important for us, not only for the purposes of operation but also for compliance with regulations like GDPR.  These are the main benefits we’re going to get from the technical side, but from the user side we are hopeful that this environment will be truly 24 x seven x 365, and we’ll offer the services required, as required, when they are required, with a speed much faster than our previous environment.  Cloud at Customer will offer the help or the ability to address all customer queries in a fast and an efficient manner.
