Dream Team Achievement

Dream Team get Awarded on December 13, 2013
"When we got this project, it was new to us" This was a common answer that we received from all the members who worked on the Internet Booking Engine (IBE) Project for one of the biggest Budget Airlines in the Middle East.
 The IBE project was first proposed by our Product Head Mr Naveen Kumar to the Dot Net team members. A team of five were recommended to do work on this project. Ravi Tejas (Project Manager), Elango Muthu (Team Lead), Jagadeeshwar, Bhargav and Subeesh. They sat in the conference room trying to understand the client's need, sketching out a plan to develop this particular requirement. Although they found this project a challenge to work on, yet they took the task up and worked as a team. They had good amount and understanding among themselves.
The project worked soon began, Elango and Jagadeeshwar were sent on-site, the rest worked from off shore. It was hard for the off shore guys as they had to work at night and co-ordinate with their team members. The time to launch this project and go live was short, at the same time they had to understand the requirement and the booking engine tools to begin development.
This Project is a web based solution with wide range of modules to book tickets and receive notifications. a solution flexible enough to handle multiple traveler categories – Individuals, Corporate and travel agents can  can interface with SITA reservation system ( New upgrades are being planned for interface with additional systems) for booking, listing, pricing and e-ticketing online through web services. This airline solution is known as ATLAS Fly. 
The IBE project was designed in a span of three months. As the date of the given deadline neared, there was tension if the product would be launched or not, if there would be any post launch problems encountered. The last few days before the date of the deadline was hectic for the team. All the members grew tensed. They hoped that this project would be a success. A day before the day of the Launch the Product Head approached the team lead and told him the following day was the CEO's birthday if the project went live it would be the best birthday gift for their boss. They sat eagerly expecting the unexpected at midnight with fingers crossed to find out what would the result of their hard word would be. 
Just as an eager student awaits his examination results and rejoices as he finds out he has done well in the end, in the same way the team sat before their systems waiting for that one call to give them the results. 
The Team Lead had a bound of joy as he drafted a mail to his CEO wishing him on his birthday and announcing the successful launch of the project. IBE project or ATLAS FLY went live on 25th October 2013. The whole team had done it. They had two bookings within a short span of time after release. The Project has been doing well and our developers are working on phase 2 of the same project. 
In order to felicitate and honor our Arowanites on their achievement a short honorary was held for them by the company.  The Dream Team awards took place on 13th December 2013. 
Congratulations on completing your team's project ahead of schedule. Your hard work and effort have paid off! A success well deserved, an occasion worth celebrating! All the best with further projects in the present year 2014.

Dream Team goes live on 25th October, 2013
