Dubai Airports, the operator of the city’s two airports, has moved its workforce to Box, a cloud content management company.
In 2016, the company selected Box to manage its cloud content and has now moved nearly 2,000 employees to this system.
Dubai Airport BT Infrastructure and Operations vice-president Abdulrahman Al Hosani said: “Nearly 88.2 million passengers travelled through Dubai Airports in 2017, and we are continually looking to implement new technology to create a smoother experience for those customers.
“With Box, we spend less time servicing file servers and support desk tickets, and can focus on what we specialise in: providing premiere passenger experience, baggage processing, and airfield management.”
Following its deployment in 2016, Dubai Airports has leveraged various Box solutions to fulfil its requirements.
Box Governance and Box KeySafe solutions were used to classify and securely control all forms of content, while Box Zones was deployed to manage and store content in European data centres.
Box solutions were also used to collaborate with external service partners and consultants, integrate with Microsoft Office 365 and Okta as well as to centralise internal project management, digital assets and business-critical records.
Box global operations senior vice-president and general manager Tom Addis said: “Dubai Airports is a leading airport authority, consistently raising the bar for aviation infrastructure and technology.
“We are excited to power the future of work at Dubai Airports by providing integral, digital-first solutions to their employees and partners.”
Besides Dubai Airports, various other transportation companies, including Eurostar, Gatwick Airport and Hamburg Airport have moved to Box.
