Hoteliers, I have a question for you: What does it mean to have a mobile guest experience? Increasingly, mobile platforms driven by powerful digital analytics are reshaping hotel operations and the guest experience. Technology is empowering hoteliers to find new ways to combine traditional high-touch service with the convenience and accessibility of mobile to reimagine the concept of hospitality and the guest journey.

If you've been working in hospitality and travel for any time at all, you know that the competition is fierce. Every year, new tech innovations arise, disruptive concepts shake the market, and it is getting slightly harder to compete with such a great number of hotels, accommodations, and the sharing economy.
We’re seeing a dramatic shift in the hotel distribution landscape right now. For the last decade, writes Travel Tripper’s Gautam Lulla, there’s been a boom in the number of new hospitality technology providers entering the market. These companies introduced fresh ideas and products into a tech landscape that had long been stagnant. We’ve now reached a point of maturity, and the industry is moving toward a "platformization model.”

Technology has fundamentally transformed how we communicate, whether it be with family, in the workplace, or at hotels. Tech has made almost everything faster and more efficient. Every industry has been transformed, and hospitality is no exception to this trend. Today, guests at hotels expect service that balances cutting-edge technology with a human touch - a balance that is difficult to achieve. Not putting enough effort into incorporating modern tech may make a hotel appear behind the times. Leaning too far the other direction, however, risks alienating guests who prefer more personal elements.

Technological progress in today's society has reached unprecedented levels; the World Wide Web did not even exist thirty years ago, while smartphones as we know them today have barely been around for a decade. Now, an even more sophisticated tool is at the forefront of changing the way we live - Artificial Intelligence (AI).
As hotels and hotel brands look to compete in an increasingly congested brandscape, the rush to adopt new digital technologies to stand apart from the competition has resulted in many rushing headlong into adopting technology, sometimes with negative consequences. Richard Swain of Huge and Prof. Chekitan S. Dev of Cornell University explain.

In any industry, standards of education help to ensure brands have access to the talent they need to continue moving the needle and growing their product or offering. Within hospitality, we realize a similar need — as the landscape continues to evolve, hotel brands and vendors alike rely on having access to qualified talent, especially in the realm of IT. The hospitality industry, as we know, is enormous and subject to continued growth. Within our sector exists a wide variety of exciting careers and rewarding management positions that cover the full spectrum of the guest experience. However, as hospitality technology continues to advance and standards of guest care are increasingly influenced by digital mediums, we arrive at the question: Are hospitality programs offering enough of an IT education component?
