Qantas has selected Oracle on Demand to upgrade its 22-year-old, Fortran-based frequent flyer platform.
Oracle will provide its Siebel Loyalty Management platform to the airline so it can better manage its 7 million members.
Chief executive of Qantas Group Loyalty, Simon Hickey, said in a statement that the airline consulted other carriers to determine the best platform for its needs.
"Oracle On Demand and Siebel Loyalty will set the foundation for Qantas to offer real-time targeted loyalty promotions, across a wide variety of member touch points," he said.
Oracle said in a statement that Qantas would be taking a "phased approach" to replacing the Fortran system, called "Profile". Phase one of the transformation will see Qantas implement a new "Frequent Flyer Service Centre".
Oracle didn't provide detailed information on the other phases of the operation.
The software will be hosted from Oracle's Texas-based datacentre.
According to The Australian, Qantas went to market for a new solution last year.
Qantas this week commenced its trial of a new next-generation check-in system running out of its Perth terminal. Participants in the trial were selected from Qantas' platinum, gold, silver and bronze members of the frequent flyer program.
