LONDON, December 3, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – With a strong desire to get back on the road, travelers are cautiously searching for and booking flights and hotels. But travel gamers are facing a challenging new reality – one where performance, flexible operations, and personal service quickly take on a whole new meaning to stay relevant.
To this end, Amadeus has expanded its partnership with Couchbase, the developer of the enterprise-class multi-cloud database, to improve the NoSQL database. With the new multi-year contract, Amadeus will use Couchbase to dynamically scale its service levels and continue to deliver applications quickly. Couchbase’s versatile and cloud-independent database already supports a number of Amadeus search, purchasing and merchandising applications for airline and hotel customers, as well as Traveler DNA (formerly Customer Experience Management) – and Amadeus will be in line with the evolving Industry add more needs.
Expanding the use of Couchbase is part of Amadeus’s strategy to continue using the cloud and develop new applications to support the industry. Couchbase’s features such as integration with Kubernetes are an important element of this strategy, as well as ease of use for developers and the flexibility and scalability to allow solutions to ramp up and complete faster.
As a result, Amadeus developers have adopted Couchbase quickly and are seeing a significantly shorter time to market due to reduced data friction issues and easier integration with third party vendors. This fits well with Amadeus’ platform approach – engineers can quickly and efficiently solve a growing number of complex business challenges. Ultimately, this partnership opens the way to innovative solutions that enable greater personalization, an essential need in the current environment.
“Supporting the recovery of the travel industry is our primary goal. We are currently in an extremely challenging environment in which the industry must react quickly to changing needs and demands from travelers. ” Sylvain Roy, SVP, Technology Platforms and Engineering, Amadeus.

Couchbase’s database makes it much easier for our engineers to focus on what they do best: solving our customers’ business challenges while improving collaboration with partners and developers. Our growing partnership will help us deliver the performance, scalability, flexibility, reliability and focus of our customers on the enterprise class that we need, and also allow us to innovate more freely in key areas such as merchandising, NDC or loyalty. “
