Aladdin Success Story
EU project Aladdin
aims to develop a
mobile destination system
that combines both the provision of a mobile incoming tour operator workspace and a
mobile content and service management system for destinations
. Aladdin provides incoming tour operators with a variety of services that help to improve their business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) businesses and to reduce processing time during the different phases of the incoming tourist life cycle. The implementation of the mobile workspace for incoming tour operators and the mobile leisure environment requires substantial development of new applications and services, as well as adaptation of existing solutions.
The Aladdin system is developed on the paradigm of a service-oriented architecture (SOA). This architecture, made up of different components and interconnections, stresses interoperability and location transparency of service providers and service customers. The interoperability is based on the ability of the Aladdin service to be invoked by any potential mobile or fixed client of the service.
