Network Management Takes Flight

Company: Spirit Airlines

Project Leader: David M. Anderson, senior vice president and CIO

Technology In Focus: Network management software

Problem: To maintain its competitive edge, Spirit not only built and maintains its own reservation system (including the airline's Web portal), but it also runs its own flight operations center. While this saves Spirit millions of dollars in outsourcing costs, it also requires network management tools to keep the company infrastructure operating efficiently.

Solution: The airline turned from homegrown applications to Fidelia's NetVigil network management software.
