Data provides businesses with insights to inform decision-making. enhance operations, improve experiences and increase safety.
Unlocking new data streams is like hitting the jackpot, provided companies follow two rules of thumb, according to Pedro Pacheco, VP of research in Gartner’s CIO Research Group:
Goodyear equipped short-haul logistics company Gatik with the intelligent tires to demonstrate, in proof of concept, the tires’ new capabilities.
The partnership between Goodyear and Gatik started in September 2022. It allows Goodyear access to Gatik’s enterprise clients, such as Walmart, KBX and Georgia-Pacific.
In addition to enhancing safety, the data solution brings intelligent tires and the increased data visibility to the enterprise level and could be used as a cost saver.
“Much like smart watches that monitor vitals like heart rates and oxygen levels, Goodyear SightLine’s tire intelligence monitors the health of a tire,” said Chris Helsel, SVP, global operations and CTO, in a June announcement. “Goodyear SightLine takes the mystery out of understanding tires and provides proactive mobility insights to communicate when tires need service or replacement.”
