Empire Airlines Takes Off With Turnkey Analytics System

Information Builders, a provider of business intelligence (BI) and analytics, information integrity, and integration solutions, has announced that Empire Airlines has implemented WebFOCUS Business User Edition as part of a bundled offering from Information Builders and Scale Computing called the Scale Analytics Appliance, the company said.

Empire Airlines is using the appliance to deliver real-time data and insights to executives, managers, and operations-level personnel, with minimal involvement by IT professionals. The turnkey solution addresses a broad range of analytics needs, from data preparation and integration to self-service reporting and data discovery.

Empire Airlines is a passenger and cargo airline based in Hayden, Idaho that operates more than 120 scheduled cargo flights per day in 18 states and Canada. As its business grew and its operation became more complex, senior managers at the company wanted to acquire a software platform to bolster their BI, analytics, and reporting capabilities.

Empire Airlines provides air cargo services in 18 states and operates an inter-island passenger service for Hawaiian Airlines. The Idaho-based company also owns Empire Aerospace, which provides heavy maintenance services to the airline industry, and Empire Unmanned, which provides unmanned aerial surveillance and analysis services for agriculture and other industries.
