LONDON, UK, and SUNNYVALE, Calif. – May 14, 2015 – Azul Systems (Azul), the award-winning leader in Java runtime solutions, today announced it will be participating in the Digital Travel Summit 2015, Europe’s most senior level e-commerce event for the travel industry.
The summit, which takes place in London (Hilton, London Tower Bridge) from 9am on June 17 – 18, will bring together over 150 senior decision-makers from the travel sector to discuss best practices and practical changes to transform digital strategies and drive online revenue growth. Summit sessions will also focus on how to personalise customer engagement, leverage data analytics, capitalise on mobile and optimise eCommerce platforms.
Azul – a trusted supplier to the online retail, e-commerce and travel sectors for over 12 years – will be joining other high profile organizations as a sponsor of the event. At the show Azul experts will be on hand to discuss Zing®, Azul’s flagship Java runtime technology. Azul Zing is a Java Virtual Machine (JVM) that eliminates Java-based stalls and jitter and helps web-based systems deliver a better and more consistent end-user experience – without changing a line of code in existing applications.
Specifically for the online travel sector, Zing helps reduce session abandonment rates, makes recommendation and pricing engines more effective and allows travelers to make more timely decisions. US-based Priceline uses Zing to ensure consistent performance within their hotel booking platform, delivering updated pricing and availability data within milliseconds via their Java-based caching subsystem. You can read more about how Priceline has integrated Zing into their stack in a recent article on the Enterprise Tech website.
