Problem Statement

Dubai Airport has a very intense technology landscape with multiple platforms and services used across departments as well as external entities. Consumers needed to have access to an interface where they could view and test all the Airport APIs available to consume. The GDPR regulations of the UAE had to be strictly adhered to. All Airport services had to be modernized and optimized (cost and performance) with the help of Azure Cloud Services.

What was needed: Allow various platforms to interact with the services provided by all airport operation in a secure & cost optimized fashion


Adfolks brought in Azure API Gateway, to bring in authorized API management where the APIs are exposed to users through the Azure API Management Developer Portal. Subscription-based access was enabled for consuming the APIs. All Airport Services were modernized to serverless technology by migrating the compute to Logic Apps and Function Apps. The serverless backend components now interact with the Data Center through Hybrid Connection Layer. All the applications’ backend with API management is monitored using Application Insights and Log Analytics Workspace.
