GE Aviation, Teradata form strategic partnership

GE Aviation and Teradata (NYSE: TDC), the data and analytics company, have announced a strategic partnership focused on providing business outcomes driven by analytics for the world´s airlines, the companies said.

Through the partnership, GE and Teradata will jointly provide products and services to specified commercial aviation markets. This strategic relationship includes joint marketing, sales, services and support across both companies, forming a complete market-ready solution that can be implemented today.

By combining operations, assets and networks from GE Aviation with Teradata´s customer information, sales and marketing, and back-office support, it makes the entire ecosystem easier to deploy, scale and use. For example, flight disruptions can be actively managed by GE with customer experience being managed by Teradata.

With the combined solutions, the process to manage disruptions is more complete by adding information about managing parts inventories, logistics, scheduling, and labor pools. Other powerful business outcomes resulting from the combined solutions range from improving flight operations and predictive maintenance to increased operational efficiencies and higher customer satisfaction.

GE Aviation´s Digital Solutions business brings industrial apps powered by Predix, GE´s platform for the Industrial Internet to the partnership. This edge-to-cloud development platform connects engines, aircraft and operations before analyzing a continuous data stream to deliver real-time actionable intelligence. Using these analytics with Teradata software creates the most flexible, scalable and powerful solution on the market.

Such capabilities are required in the global airline industry, which is dealing with a growing volume of data that could reach many exabytes in a single year. Both technologies are primed for working in a hybrid cloud environment with built-in support for on premises as well as major public cloud vendors.

With both global leaders already deeply entrenched in the airline industry, results from the joint offering are expected to make an immediate impact for global airline customers.
