Many airlines continue to rely on IBM’s Transaction Processing Facility (TPF) for their most critical processes. However, maintaining TPF systems is not easy—it requires deep technology expertise, skilled resources available on-demand, and strong operational focus to ensure high system availability. That is what Coforge provides, while delivering more value across the TPF lifecycle through customized tools for greater productivity, a dedicated development center for end-to-end solutions, and 24x7 support to ensure reliability.
Lighten the TPF Load with Coforge
Transaction processing systems have been at the core of the travel industry for decades. Many such systems, including IBM’s Transaction Processing Facility, which were installed years ago, are still in use because of their proven strengths.
Travel and Transportation companies continue to rely on TPF for handling large transactions with a fast response time. However, applications running on the TPF platform have been heavily customized over the years based on changing business needs. Maintenance and enhancement of these applications is time-consuming and cost-intensive due to a lack of skilled in-house resources and underlying complexity of technology. This causes a strain on enterprise IT budgets and leads to a reduced focus on the development of newer systems. Coforge can help address these challenges. By providing specialized resources, robust solutions, and flexible delivery models, we enable cost-effective and efficient business processes across the TPF lifecycle from reservations to cargo to departure control.
