Software analytics and data company Tibco and Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport are partnering this year on data analytics solutions for the team’s Formula 1 campaign and the new Mercedes-AMG F1 W10 EQ Power+ race car.
The reigning champions are using Tibco’s Connected Intelligence platform to leverage terabytes of dynamic data from any race weekend and help make strategic decisions at the factory, as well as during a race. The platform provides advanced analytics which help the team pinpoint anomalies, make faster decisions, and exploit the full potential of its cars.
Thomas Been, chief marketing officer of Tibco, said, “Our Tibco Connected Intelligence platform is suitable for customers that require insights to inform critical decisions in real time.
“Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport are committed to developing the car throughout the season to stay ahead of competition. With new regulation changes in place for the 2019 season, data will be key to success. We wish them success in 2019, as we work together to enhance performance, improve reliability, and reduce lead-times.”
Toto Wolff, team principal and chief executive officer, Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport, said, “Winning in Formula 1 requires both a team that can push development throughout an entire season, as well as technology that allows the freedom to innovate across the organization.
“Tibco technology not only provides our team with insights about the W10, but also gives us the necessary, real-time data we need to take the right risks at the right time to make decisions that ultimately enhance performance and help win races.
