Leaders’ Series: Quantum Aviation CEO David Kennedy
International airports of all sizes can and should expect the same level of support, customisation and savings from their software provider. Quantum Aviation CEO David Kennedy explains why.
Small and mid-sized airports have traditionally lagged behind larger airports in terms of IT infrastructure, due to costly and cumbersome legacy enterprise systems. These one-size-fits-all systems aren’t created to be scalable: they require significant capital costs to invest and a complex purchasing process makes most airports shy away from improvements. Airports often don’t want to own the infrastructure either – which is understandable.
The change today
Today we are seeing a change in the relationship between smaller international airports and IT providers. Those airports can now expect to reap the same benefits as larger hubs with access to a global system that is open-source and equally as robust. There are no capital expenditures and no internal databases to manage. Due to the systems that organisations such as Quantum provide, airports can change and upgrade their system with no upfront costs, meaning there’s room for everyone to play and it will benefit the industry no matter the size.
