GE Digital announced at the Farnborough Air Show that it had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Microsoft and Teradata to develop a sustainability solution designed to help reduce carbon emissions. The three companies expect to begin to work together to develop an offering designed to help empower aircraft operators with the tools they need to record, report, and reduce emissions. The collaboration brings the software solutions of three companies together to target the challenge of helping to reduce aviation emissions. GE Digital provides high fidelity flight data and fuel efficiency analytics to identify specific opportunities to help reduce fuel and emissions. Microsoft Cloud for Sustainability enables reporting across aircraft operation stakeholders through its common data model and streamlined data capture via Microsoft Sustainability Manager and a broad array of calculation services. The Teradata Vantage multi-cloud data and analytics platform via Flight Data Link, a solution developed with GE Digital, allows for the integration of additional operational and financial data sources via the airline industry’s data model, as well as analytics to better understand root cause of non-adherence to fuel saving opportunities. Bringing these capabilities together can help close the feedback loop with front-line personas outside the direct sphere of influence of the fuel team. The goal of the future solution will be to help support recording, reporting, and reducing emissions by breaking down silos with an integrated data model using actual data, not estimates. The new solution is intended to allow users to access a sustainability dashboard for more accurate measurement of emissions and savings for Scope 1, 2, and 3 reporting. In addition, the companies intend to deliver self-service analytics to help users leverage predictive, prescriptive, and actionable recommendations to make changes within the operation that help to reduce emissions and influence across the value chain.
