A rules-based travel notification system uses IBM Operational Decision Manager, IBM Integration Bus, IBM® WebSphere® MQ, IBM WebSphere DataPower® and IBM Tivoli® Directory Integrator.


With millions of messages sent, the travel experience is improved, passenger traffic is up 7.8 percent, 60 percent of passengers click for more information and just 0.5 percent have opted out.
