New IT facilities
With the aim of lowering costs, increasing reliability and improving user experiences, several new IT services have been introduced recently at the airport.To some extent these are the fruit of in-house knowledge among the staff at Aerodrom Ljubljana, and of good cooperation between employees and external contractors.
way, the first few days of this year saw the successful conclusion
of a virtualisation project and optimisation of the server
infrastructure.The project achieved simpler administration
of the IT infrastructure, greater reliability and operative
availability, significantly lower costs for purchasing the actual
system and approximately halved costs for purchasing subsequent
licences, maintenance and energy.This ranks Ljubljanas
Jože Pučnik Airport among those using the very latest technology to
support their IT systems, both in Slovenia and around the
world. This is also recognised by the
Microsoft company, which is presenting the state-of-the-art and
energy-efficient virtualisation of our data system as a model
Alongside the virtualisation project and optimisation of the server infrastructure, processes in the air cargo warehouse have also been automated. Numerous air cargo consignments are composed of various groups of items supported by different support processes in the supply chain.For this reason, with the overhauling of warehousing processes, the exchanging of documents in electronic form was introduced, together with the objective of paper-free warehouse operations, which will depend on the others involved in the supply chain.Currently the required messages about current status of consignments and electronic cargo manifests are already being sent automatically.In the future they are seeking to join the e-freight air cargo network, which was created as a pilot project by the IATA.
Currently the airport has also been testing overhauled software for displaying data on public information monitors intended to provide information to passengers and visitors about traffic at the airport. The overhaul means upgraded functionality for the IT system, and users will see the difference primarily in the greater accessibility and readability of information.
