AMOScentral - shifting boundaries

AMOScentral – empowering collaboration
AMOS has one of the largest global reaches within the M&E software world. The fast growing AMOS community has now extended to more than 150 productive AMOS environments running worldwide. Following the need of members of the AMOS community to collaborate in one way or another, the concept of AMOScentral has evolved over the last years and is now ready to be announced.

AMOScentral – a cloud over all AMOS instances
AMOScentral is an innovative addition to the current Swiss-AS product suite that will seamlessly integrate into the AMOS world. It will allow each member of the AMOS community to either act as a subscriber or a provider of data sets according to its own needs while having a unique registration in the AMOScentral service directory.

- is a message broker (no data is stored) 
- is cloud-based and therefore scalable
- enables the routing of AMOS data between instances
- organizes the “handshake” between members while determining the best-fit communication.

Data control and confidentiality 
Both parties, subscriber and provider, need to agree to the exchange of info via AMOScentral where privacy is guaranteed due to the endto-end encryption of data. Strong encryption for the communication channels and the data exchanged is an important cornerstone of this architecture. Only the parties involved may read the data objects being exchanged (also not Swiss-AS), which ensures that AMOS customers never lose control of their data.

AMOScentral use cases
Already today, the existing AMOS multi-entity / multi-operator functions offer customers a medium for close cooperation which is suitable only in very specific customer contexts. The spectrum of collaboration via AMOScentral has many more facets and will be an enrichment for all members of the AMOS community. In dialogue with AMOS customers many AMOScentral use cases have emerged over time. Only a few use cases are referred to here (please see the AMOScentral White Paper for more info).

Data Harmonization / Synchronization: AMOScentral allows members of an airline group to harmonize predefined AMOS data sets, such as part numbers,  ATA-chapters,  aircraft-types, conditions or vendor addresses across multiple environments.
