MicroStrategy has recently announced that TAP Portugal, the leading Portuguese airline, has deployed MicroStrategy business intelligence (BI) dashboards to analyze air transportation and flight operations performance data. Also noted in this PR Newswire release is that TAP uses MicroStrategy dashboards to analyze flight operations data in areas, including crew efficiency, air traffic control costs, and fuel consumption.
"TAP's Operations Performance dashboard was selected as a finalist in the MicroStrategy Dashboard Showcase, and was featured at the MicroStrategy World 2010 user conference in Cannes, France. The dashboards were evaluated based on visual design, ease-of-use, and business value. TAP's dashboard provides a daily evaluation of flight operations, performance, costs, and waste control linked to budget and forecast scenarios. With the dashboard, operational procedures are more efficient since data anomalies are easier to identify.
"'With MicroStrategy, we have the ability to closely monitor our operations performance using key performance indicators to detect trends and areas of waste,' said Mario Chaves, Flight Operations Program Manager & Budget Control, Captain A320. 'It is very useful to be able to drill through volumes of data and identify areas that can help us to improve business performance.'"
