SEA Plans More Resilient IT Infrastructure

Airports are continuing to transform, preparing for an estimated double in travelers by 2035. SEA, a leading Italian airports operator, has announced a seven-year service agreement that consolidates and manages IT infrastructure on a hybrid IT environment that integrates the IBM Cloud.

The decision reflects airport operators’ need to be more agile and responsive by better utilizing information technology services. The agreement that covers data center and hosting services, systems and storage managed services, help desk and security management, is expected to generate significant savings for SEA in the next seven years.

Through the agreement, SEA that manages Northern Italy’s main airports Milan Linate and Malpensa, will use a resilient IT infrastructure that supports new technologies to help improve service levels and operate with more flexibility.

“SEA has distinguished itself in recent years for its ability to offer innovative services and its own increasingly reliable partners and customers,” said Luciano Carbone, Chief Corporate Officer of SEA, “We are aware, however, that the evolution of technology requires continuous commitment and focus in order to maintain the highest quality standards. By working with IBM, we feel strongly that we will not only meet our strategic initiatives, but exceed them.”

The partnership is just one of many instances where IBM is transforming the industry.
