Expedia Group Using Automation to Drive Digital Business

By Thorsten Müller

Global travel technology company Expedia Group deploys modern automation solution that enables development and operations to focus on product enhancements and innovation.

Expedia Group’s business is built on innovation and speed of deployment. Their existing Workload Automation system was built upon an outdated platform with an outdated licensing scheme, and a cumbersome thick client, which was problematic for developers and end users to self-serve and deliver business value.

Therefore, Expedia Group initiated a search for a modern, scalable and secure automation solution to relieve themselves from this burdensome situation. Expedia Group found what they were looking for at Stonebranch, that stood out against other workload automation vendors with its Universal Automation Center during the evaluation phase, particularly with regards to user-friendliness and selfservice capabilities.

Results:

  • Reduced support costs with 90% of transition self-managed
  • Improved functionality
  • More efficient automation due to robust API
  • Tasks require 50% less effort with onboard time reduced from one week
    to one day due to superior ease of use
