Shownotes

Tanya is Vice President at Oracle Hospitality and leads the OPERA Cloud Strategy and Product Management teams. Prior to joining Oracle Hospitality, Tanya spent over 20 years at Fairmont Hotels and Resorts in Hotel Operations, Revenue Management, Distribution and CRM. 

This is my second episode with Tanya. Way back on Episode 36, we discussed an Oracle study looking at the hotel industry’s path to recovery in light of the early days of the pandemic. 

Oracle has followed this up with a new study looking at how technology is changing the hospitality industry, how customers’ expectations have shifted, and organizations are responding.

Titled, “Hospitality in 2025: AUTOMATED, INTELLIGENT... AND MORE PERSONAL”, the report dives deep into four main categories: 

  • Guest-facing technology
  • Labor and operations
  • Automation and guest data
  • Ancillaries, upgrades, and non-room revenue

Tanya shares important insights into the report and how industry leaders are reacting to circumstances they may have little control over. 

I really enjoyed this conversation with Tanya, and I think we do a good job digging beyond the typical talking points and bring this report to life with real examples that show meaning behind the findings.
