This week, GE shares the staggering success they have had with the airline industry using the Data Lake approach, powered by Pivotal Big Data Suite technologies. Using its Flight Efficiency Services, GE is redefining how aviation performs maintenance. Right now, GE does thousands of overhauls for jet engines every day. Traditionally, they had to wait for the plane to land, and have a team of live engineers assemble the workscope for what is needed to complete the service. For 25 airlines buying into GE's vision, that workscope is now digital. In the past year, GE was able to transform terabytes of full flight data into actionable insight that has provided measurable cost savings of 10x. Also, by analyzing the data in a data lake they were able to cut the analysis time from weeks to days. These savings are providing airlines like AirAsia a savings of more than one percent of their fuel bill each year.
