Dubai branch to help advance OM³ Travel Retail Solution

AOE, a leading global provider of services and Enterprise Open Source solutions for digital transformation and digital business models, announced today the opening of its first Middle East Office in Dubai.

“We’re excited to open our first office in the United Arab Emirates,” said Kian Gould, founder and CEO of AOE. “The UAE and the entire region are continuously growing in importance as global travel hubs and shopping destinations and therefore perfectly match our strategy to bring digital business models to travel retail and integrated large-scale multi-retailer venues looking to digitalize their entire value chain – in this region and around the world.”

With the number of total passengers approaching 84 million, Dubai International was the world’s third-busiest airport in 2016. Its importance as a global aviation hub underscores the strategic shift from a region relying primarily on fossil fuels to a more diversified, future-proof economy.

OM³ Suite Key for strategic Growth in the Travel Retail Sector

The Dubai office will serve as a regional launching pad for the company’s Omnichannel Multi-Merchant Marketplace (OM³), a solution that helps multi-retailer venues such as airports, shopping malls or integrated resorts to fuse offline and online experiences into a single comprehensive suite of software applications and services.

“Retail is one of the primary revenue drivers in travel and aviation, but key travel retail players need to find new ways to generate sustainable sales growth in a fiercely competitive market,” Gould said. “Our OM³ Suite, first implemented at Frankfurt Airport, is ideally positioned to meet the demands of airlines, airports and malls in opening new revenue streams.”

In January, AOE announced a 13 million EUR investment from German private equity firm LEA Partners to fuel international growth and expansion of its OM³ Airport Suite. The new office represents a cornerstone in the company’s strategy to bring the suite directly to the client, thus helping to accelerate development while customizing the solution to fulfill individual requirements.

Combining expertise in cybersecurity: AOE launches subsidiary Bare.ID

WIESBADEN, August 09, 2021 - AOE, one of the world's leading service providers for digital transformation, headquartered in Wiesbaden, the capital of the German state of Hesse, is launching Bare.ID, a fully-managed-as-a-service identity, authentication and authorization solution. Hosted exclusively as a central single sign-on authentication and authorization point in German data centers, the identity management solution administers a directory of identities (PII) and their access rights to the various applications. AOE guarantees the highest security standards and complies with German data protection regulations. Bare.ID serves as a central single sign-on authentication and authorization point for application landscapes and connects all services via standard protocols such as OpenID Connect or SAML. Furthermore, Bare.ID manages information about the identities of users. These can either be maintained manually by the customer or can be connected via federation techniques to external identity sources such as an existing Active Directory or Identity and Access Management System at the customer's site, but also third party single sign-on systems. At the same time, Bare.ID enables customers to obtain an overview of accesses, login failures, insecure or expired passwords or orphaned accounts for their internal compliance reports and then also to integrate these into their own security incident event monitoring. IT departments can thus be sustainably supported and relieved in the creation and administration of user accounts – while adhering to company-internal compliance guidelines. Thanks to preconfigured applications, users can use Bare.ID without any specialist knowledge; the technical complexity and the security-relevant configurations are not visible to the user. The fact that the proper handling of personal data and business-critical information is no longer a voluntary option is well known. Bare.ID stores all data in daily backups highly secure alternatively in two data centers located in Germany. "Our participation in the initiatives "IT Security – Made in Germany", "Software Hosted in Germany" as well as Cloud Services – Made in Germany" are proof of trustworthy security solutions from AOE. Bare.ID thus complies with strict German data protection laws," says Steffen Ritter, Commercial Director Cybersecurity at AOE GmbH.
