Customer case study: Hooroo – How the cloud and a Lean mindset helped Qantas launch a new business

A joint presentation by Warner Godfrey, DiUS Computing, and Bruce Fair, Hooroo, at the AWS Summit in Sydney will cover how DiUS used the cloud to help Qantas successfully enter the burgeoning online travel market with the speed, scale and agility typically associated with a start-up.

Twelve months on and now a global player, we examine the challenges, successes, what we’d do differently and the changing measures of success.

Also covered is how Qantas responded to the commercial challenges of using the cloud such as security, privacy and data sovereignty, and the key development practices such as Continuous Deployment that facilitated three major production releases in 15 months, for Qantas, Jetstar and the launch of a new brand, Hooroo.
