Avianca, a prominent Latin American airline, has completed the migration of AMOS, its aircraft maintenance software, from an on-premises setup to a cloud-based solution, AMOScloud, hosted on Google cloud by Swiss-AS. This transition to AMOScloud represents more than just a technical upgrade; it marks a significant leap in Avianca’s digital transformation journey.
Benefits of AMOScloud Migration include:
Cost-Effectiveness: The shift to SaaS significantly reduces infrastructure costs, providing Avianca with more financial flexibility and efficiency.
Scalability: Cloud hosting allows Avianca to effortlessly scale AMOS usage as per its evolving requirements.
Operational Continuity and low risks: The migration, meticulously planned and executed, ensured no disruption for the approximately 500 concurrent users, demonstrating the non-impactful nature of this digital transition.
The project spanned seven months, featuring meticulous planning and execution. Both teams invested substantial efforts throughout the project activities. Their dedication and collaboration were instrumental in achieving this milestone.
The project included stages like database and web drive migration, report cleansing and migration, custom SQL conversion and integration with various systems such as LIDO, NetLine, SAP, Modula, MS Azure, Skywise, and Aviatar. The overall scope encompassed a database, over 300 customised reports and numerous SQL migrations from Oracle to PostgreSQL.
Swiss-AS, renowned for its proficiency in managing AMOS and associated databases, executed the migration with remarkable accuracy. The main activities, commencing Friday (December 8) at 22:00 (BOG Time), culminated in an 18-hour operation, with the core database and web-drive transition completed in just four hours. Despite a minor delay, the switch was seamless, underscoring the robust planning and execution.
