Ditto, creators of critical software infrastructure that enables apps to synchronize data in real-time even without internet connectivity, announced its Intelligent Edge Platform is powering a task management and peer-to-peer connectivity enterprise app for Alaska Airlines flight attendants. Alaska Airlines is the first U.S. airline to adopt Ditto, giving crew members collaboration tools with real-time data, even when network connectivity is unavailable, and supplying enterprises with analytics that were previously inaccessible.
Ditto’s Intelligent Edge Platform enables real-time, peer-to-peer communication without internet. By powering Alaska Airlines’ crew-to-crew collaboration app, flight attendants can perform internal processes such as guest services and delivery of onboard products more efficiently.
Additionally, because airlines operate in different work environments on the ground and in the sky, their software tools require a new architecture to work reliably. Ditto’s Intelligent Edge Platform harnesses the power of the edge devices to process and communicate data, circumventing the necessity of a central server.
“Our Intelligent Edge Platform enables Alaska Airlines’ enterprise app to truly work at the edge which is where crew do their jobs. So, it’s essential for them to access real-time safety data and passenger preferences, regardless of internet status, in order to perform their jobs well. Without the digitization of key processes, airlines miss out on crucial data and analytics as well as communications capabilities that are important for greater operational efficiencies and more highly optimized customer experiences,” said Adam Fish, Ditto co-founder and CEO.
Ditto’s Intelligent Edge offers unified, real-time data sync for mobile, web, IoT and server apps, even without the internet. The complete solution features an SDK with a peer-to-peer (P2P) mesh network, embedded database, and is capable of automatic conflict resolution, as well as a cloud database that can handle extreme resiliency, automatic scalability for handling unpredictable loads, and seamless integration via APIs.
General commercial aviation communications are made more efficient by simply embedding Ditto’s Intelligent Edge Platform into existing apps. Ditto allows paper processes to be digitized and synced in real-time across all crew devices, even in an airplane where network connectivity is limited or completely unavailable.
