Airline tickets have gone from paper to digital, and travel agents moved online from brick and mortar offices. These are two of the most visible indicators of a widespread evolution in the aviation business. Across the spectrum of Passenger Services, Loyalty Management, Departure Control Systems, Airline Operations, Airport Operations, Airline Cargo Management and e-Commerce, every disruption – no matter how sudden or sweeping it may seem - is driven by extensive ideation, prototyping and other efforts behind the scenes. IBS Software is one of the elite companies in the aviation sector leading the evolution, in addition to the Travel, Cruise, Hospitality and Energy & Resource Logistics sectors. As an IBSian, you have a big role to play in the future of these industries.
Robust architectural frameworks, unique collaborative product development and an enterprise level program for continual improvement of our technological foundations enable IBS to sustain a competitive edge in the industry. We typically seek to leverage strong technological capabilities centred around Java, Angular JS, SQL, JDBC, Swing, Hibernate, Spring, and ASP.Net to unlock value for our customer businesses on multiple fronts. If you wish to be part of the IBS Software family, being able to demonstrate a skillset aligned with these would be a clear strategic advantage.
For most of my 14 year stint with IBS Software, I have been a technical architect. We work on AWS Cloud based platform using Spring, Spring Boot, Hibernate, Postgre SQL, Redis, Ehcache, Kafka, Angular JS, EKS, and other services provided by the cloud platform.
Technology is growing faster than ever, and IBS adopts the suitable technologies and upgrade products with the latest technologies along with the overall changes. IBS indeed provides good learning opportunities to adapt to the latest trends and technologies. Focused mentoring by the Leaders, internal technology forums and the various training courses help a lot to keep myself updated, to suit my profile.
The technologies I worked with so far at IBS are Python (including the flask and flask_restful libraries), nginx, http, Scheme, C, bash, shell/bash scripts. docker, kubernetes, helm, Rancher, GCloud and git.
Working at IBS has been a great way of learning and applying critical DevOps technologies such as docker, kubernetes and helm. Also, it was a great opportunity to be involved in system architecture, designing restful APIs, and algorithms as well as learning new programming languages such as the ubiquitous python and the fundamental C. I believe these are indispensable tools for computer engineers these days, especially with the focus on cloud migration. In addition, knowing how to use tools like the shell and git properly are also instrumental and of great importance and utility for programmers.
Having been able to work with the architecture team from the beginning itself helped me learn from the product experts. For the past ten years, I am working as a technology expert in our airline loyalty program. The platforms we work on are JEE, Spring, Spring Boot, Oracle, Postgres, Hibernate, JSF, Angular, AWS, Docker and Kubernetes.
Being a product company, IBS invests significantly in tech RnD to make sure that its products are using the latest technologies. Constant tech evaluations are done with the help of our technical experts and consultants and THS architects to find outdated components and they are replaced with best alternatives. In this process all members of the team also gets the opportunity to learn new things and upgrade themselves.
Of my 16 years in IBS Software, I have worked in multiple implementations as technology expert in areas like data migration, integration architect, NFR owner, Solution Architect, Enterprise architect. Primarily focussing on Reliability, Security, Cost Optimization, Performance, Operational Excellence of Java, JEE projects in micro-services & open source deployments on cloud.
IBS Software gives opportunity, not just on the technological side, but also provides the right blend of technology, management, soft skills & leadership opportunities. IBS has helped me draw my career path in the right direction through technology trainings, soft skills trainings, leadership programs etc. As part of the various implementations, I was able to travel quite a lot and also associate with technology leads in multiple airlines, thus helpng me strengthen my technology solution skills.
I work on technology platforms like Machine Learning, Predictive Analytics, Time Series Forecasting and Cloud Computing(AWS).
One of the best things about IBS is the flexibility it provides when it comes to using the latest technologies for solving any business problem. I have been exposed to many new and amazing technologies since last two years. And above all my peers and seniors were instrumental in helping me out and encouraging me to learn new techs in order to provide the best solutions to our clients.
I have worked with machine learning and mlops systems.
In DXI we always try to build new things and we always try to use the latest stable tools available. For instance we have already transitioned away from java and have been working with python for a while. We are also considering newer languages like go or rust. We also do research on machine learning and try to find all the latest best techniques and algorithms that are in the field and make use of them in our use-cases.
A few platforms I have worked on are J2EE, Spring, AngularJS, Web Components, Jasper and Apache Superset.
As part of Technology & Architecture team, I was always given exposure to the latest technologies in the industry. I was able to constantly evaluate and upgrade to new technologies related to continuous integration and delivery with Jenkins, Sonar, Docker, architecture changes with use of microfrontends, microservices, web components etc. or optimization with tools like IBM CPLEX, Apache Superset, Liquibase. We get the opportunity to always bring in cutting edge new technologies to provide an industry-best highly scalable product with an open cloud architecture and, a powerful and intuitive user experience.
I have worked on Java, Spring, Hibernate, JPA.
I started my IT career with IBS as a fresher. My career aspiration was to become a Java Expert and IBS helped me groom into a Technical Architect. I have been given many opportunities to explore my technical skills in the design and implementation of complex modules, performance optimisations, Go Live handling, Technical onsite discussions with Client etc. It has helped me fulfil my vision and has given me a lot of confidence.
Oracle and Python are the platforms that I mostly work on.
As a member of the Application & Architecture team, I was always given exposure to the latest technologies in the industry. During my career path in IBS from June 2005 to the present, I was able to evaluate different technologies and tools like various kinds of databases, data replications tools, visualisation and reporting tools, big data technologies and AI & ML algorithms, with which we were able to provide the best/first in class product to our customers.
