Head of IT

Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport
With 3.5 TB data transfer per race weekend, over 300 data sensing modules per car, and 18,000 channels of data analyzed per race, the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport F1 team relies on TIBCO for their success. Matt discussed the intensive operations and research that goes into each race, and how TIBCO is fundamental by helping improve the car’s digital twin, pre-event setup of the car, and simulate car setup variations.

Head of IT

Norton Healthcare
Michelle showed us the importance of analytics in Healthcare today. Americans spent more than $3.65 trillion on healthcare last year, with 39% being on hospital care alone. Challenges in standardization, shift management, variation in staffing alignment, and other factors all increase the need for analytics. Using TIBCO Spotfire, Norton Healthcare has been able to benchmark and track, align and predict, and take action and accountability, all producing measurable and impactful results.
