This week, I happened to stumble across this Wikipedia article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Not_invented_here
Then I stumbled across this image.
It reminded me very much of my experience with A-CDM, where most larger airports’ IT rejects external solutions in order to build a custom-made solution. After several years of work, we have several tires (or tiers?) of different size, incompatible to build upon.
It’s the same argument I hear from many airports and airlines when talking to them about CheckIn.com.
It will take time (and interest) until they understand that it’s not just another “same”, but something fundamentally new.
