What can businesses learn from the way Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport leverages data?

A single Formula One race weekend this year will generate more data for Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport than the whole of one race season 10 years ago.

With the team gathering such a high volume of information, describing it accurately is paramount. It’s Head of IT, Matt Harris, explains how the team makes sense of all the data available to them – not just for today, but for the future.

With many traditional manufacturers facing a similar situation, Ian Henderson, Chief Technologist at HPE, describes how adopting a ‘sprint-based’ approach paid dividends for an automotive component manufacturer.

The engine behind the engine  

One of the ways Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport is better harnessing data – and has the speed and agility to learn from and quickly act on it – is through its technology and advisory partnership with HPE.  

The partnership is focused on operational efficiency, car performance and overall technology capability both at the factory and trackside, and is enabling HPE to develop intelligent solutions that allow businesses to capture, analyse and act upon data insights seamlessly from edge to cloud.  

In a sport where split seconds make the difference, HPE technologies and HPE Pointnext are helping the team gain new technology advances to power its driver around the track.
