The ability to apply software to strategic advantage is the de? ning technology theme of this decade. This is not just an IT issue. It is a business imperative.

If you’ve seen recent car ads, you know they’re as likely to promote applications and connections as they are styling and horsepower. But manufacturers aren’t the only ones pushing apps these days. Banks, airlines, restaurants—you name it—all are using them to attract and engage customers. This is the application economy; where every company is in the software business and user experience is the new survival of the fittest.

continuously operating airline. Today it is widely regarded as the world's leading long-distance airline and one of the strongest brands in Australia, responsible for an estimated $1.7 billion in revenue for the fiscal year 2009/2010. The airline is committed to continually improving the experience on its website, qantas.com, whether enabling travelers to book all parts of a holiday or to self-manage their travel experiences. Since the site was first launched in 1996, it has evolved into the airline's primary customer contact channel.

What’s $6.12 to you? A fast food meal? A pair of dry-cleaned
pants? In the airline industry, that’s the net profit per passenger.

Commercial airplanes are expensive and complicated machines - which means two things. First, airlines have to get the best possible return from their investment by using them as much as possible. Long-haul flights can keep an airplane in the air for up to 20 hours every day, earning money for the airline with every passing minute. However, the planes makes no money on the ground, so airlines have to maintain and service the aircraft efficiently, and get it back in the air with a new payload of passengers as quickly as possible. Therefore, the MRO (Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul) is a critical and complex part of an airline's business and one of the key factors in making the business successful.
Aircraft are the geese that lay golden eggs for the airline. So the airlines need to look after them.
