D’Arezzo Predicts IT Budgets Will Fail to Keep up with Security and Performance Flaws
JoTo PR Client, Condusiv Technologies, wrote a bylined article in Hospitality Technology titled, U.S. Hotel IT Infrastructure Vulnerable to I/O Performance Issues.
In an investigation stretching over two months last fall, Marriott Corporation discovered that the reservation system for its Starwood division had been breached, and some 38.3 million guest records compromised, including 18.5 million passport numbers and 9.1 million payment card numbers. This incident offers a revealing glimpse into the digital framework of today’s hotel industry. Like healthcare, finance, and other complex modern fields, hotels are dependent on a network of very large, interactive, and potentially vulnerable databases.
D’Arezzo also noted that the internet has fundamentally changed the way the hotel industry operates. This crowded data environment is further complicated by the fact that the hotel industry is both intensely competitive and rapidly growing. As of 2018 there were five million hotel rooms in the U.S.; at the current 66.2% occupancy rate, that translates to 3.1 million room nights per day. Data is the new threat—hotel industry IT budgets are not going to be able to keep up without confronting these issues is a real concern.
