Editor's Notes

  • Notes: Leverage technology and collaborate with other players in the travel ecosystem. Scenarios discussed in the next few slides cover travel agents, hospitality, airline, car rental etc.

    Four phases of travel – Travel planning, pre travel, during travel and post travel
  • Data consolidation on Big Data platform resulting in real time personalization, recommendation, indentifying registered and non-registered flyers

    Social connect - app where Alice plugs in her destinations, sites she want to see, restaurants and bars she want to visit and places to visit
    Syncing with outlook - Connected traveler and Omni-Channel experience even on Non-Travel App such as Outlook
    Trip story board – helping Alice visualize her entire trip with pics, post its etc

  • Airline becomes a one stop shop for complete journey instead of only Trip by interacting with the other players in the ecosystem:
    Notifications - Alice’s flight is delayed by 2 hours and gets an apology for delay. He also get a notification that her cab would be re-scheduled automatically
    Gate navigation via iBeacons -The airline uses coordinated proximity sensing devices synced with itinerary to sense Alice is very early to her gate. Airline notifies Alice of dining options near her gate and gives a 2 for 1 complimentary gift voucher
    Assigned boarding time - Alice doesn’t have to wait in line !

  • In-room technology: Technology, notably Bluetooth, will increasingly make rooms more ‘open’—both literally and virtually. For example, mobile technology will allow guests to unlock and enter their rooms. And after they are in their room, guests will open their room to the virtual world with customized entertainment content and room management. Because today’s travelers have their own mobile devices, it enables us as hoteliers to provide them with technology that makes their stay with us smarter and simpler—‘smarter’ thanks to Bluetooth and ‘simpler’ by facilitating their use of personalized content in movies, television and music
  • Connected traveler – Ancillary revenue.
    Alice gets a notification that her table is reserved in the restaurant and her cab is booked to pick her up. She thanks the airline and mentions her great experience at the Airline handle on twitter/FB. She thus becomes a brand loyal and advocates the brand to friends and family
  • But what are we talking about when we say “making businesses digital”? There are four core models that are important to keep in mind to achieve true digital transformation:

    Creating digital customer experiences
    Digitizing the value chain across the front and back end
    Developing “sense-and-respond” systems
    And Shaping new, innovative business models and partnerships
