Forecasting the Future: Aston Martin Red Bull Racing

Winning Formula One teams leave nothing to chance. The real race starts way before the cars reach the track. And with many strategic decisions being made in seconds, and race circuits and climates varying drastically from week to week, weather is a crucial factor Formula One teams must consider when planning for and executing on race day. That is why Aston Martin Red Bull Racing is working with The Weather Company to optimise race performance by utilising The Weather Company’s global data-driven weather solutions.

Airlines: What's your global fight tracking strategy?

Achieving universal compliance of global flight tracking continues to be an ever-present challenge for airlines. In 2018, it will be mandated that all aircraft must report where they are every 15 minutes of their flight duration. Airlines are becoming aware of how fully accountable they are, not only for the aircraft but for passengers and crew onboard. Find out how airlines can get ahead of the mandate with WSI Fusion, a flight tracking and proactive operations management solution — a solution that will allow users to analyse data and, if need-be, act upon a risky or abnormal situation.

Utilities: Are you prepared for your next outage?

The European utility industry is seeing higher demand for energy — more so now than ever — and with that comes an unforgiving expectation for uninterrupted power. The implementation of an outage prediction solution into your decision-making process is a no-brainer. The Weather Company’s Outage Prediction streamlines the decision-making process around deploying field teams with the right skill sets to precise locations at optimal times, resulting in faster restoration times, lower costs, and happier customers.

Telcos: Are you keeping your workers safe?

From 2016-2017, there were three fatalities recorded in the electric, gas, steam, and air conditioning sector in the United Kingdom.

Read more about how The Weather Company is helping telcos maximise preparedness and optimise decision-making.
