Travix: Google Cloud Platform training

The challenge

  • Business challenges: Facilitate efficient training for a rapidly growing and evolving team
  • IT challenges: Quickly pick up and embrace new technologies to strengthen competitive advantage
     

Travix is a global, online travel company that operates in 39 countries and has offices around the world. Through well-known brands such as CheapTickets.nl and BudgetAir, Travix helps people book the best possible flights every day.

Travix started the exciting journey towards Google Cloud in 2015, starting with the adoption of Google Workspace. For more details on this adoption journey, you can always read the case study here reading. Meanwhile, they are increasingly leveraging the many innovative capabilities of Google Cloud Platform for infrastructure, data and applications, to further enable data-driven decision-making and customer service. Travix's growth requires a scalable IT infrastructure, with the ability to flexibly set up new software stacks per new customer.

The next item on the to-do list for this path was in-depth GCP training, to learn how to maximize the potential of this scalable interface.

"The classroom training combined with in-depth Qwiklabs exercises are proving very efficient in training the teams."

Angelos Kannelopoullos, Technical Director
 

The results

Around the theme of data analysis, g-company organized the training courses 'BigQuery, from Data to Insights' and 'Data Engineering'. The SRE team learned about core infrastructure, and design and process in the context of the roadmap. The developers were trained in developing applications.

In addition, g-company helped the engineering team to obtain the relevant certifications that would recognise their technical expertise. For this purpose, specific preparatory trainings were provided prior to the organised certification moments, resulting in a high success rate.

Blended learning and specific training have resulted in technical specialists who enjoy using their skills to optimise Travix's infrastructure and applications, as well as to contribute to further innovations.
