In a collaboration intended to transform the way automakers, dealers, insurers and financing companies leverage data-driven insights, data and analytics provider J.D. Power will work with Palantir Technologies Inc. to develop generative artificial intelligence and predictive analytics solutions to facilitate deeper insights and more strategic decision-making by the automotive industry.
J.D. Power, which analyzes more than 20 million vehicle transactions per year and has collected billions of vehicle configuration and performance datapoints, will leverage Palantir Foundry and AIP to help integrate its automotive data sets, including incentives, retail sales, valuations, vehicle configuration, service and warranty, new and used inventory, and automobile customer experience data, to support development of analytics models and workflow solutions to help address some of the auto industry’s toughest issues. The combined capabilities will also help facilitate collaboration between automakers and industry regulators as new technologies, such as electrification and autonomous driving, become more widely adopted.
“This breakthrough collaboration will fundamentally transform the way the auto industry analyzes its performance and optimizes its go-to-market strategy and product offerings by pairing the world’s most robust automotive databases with the most powerful analytics platforms,” said J.D. Power President and CEO Dave Habiger. “As a result of our work with Palantir, our clients are now able to create unique insights that were previously impossible.”
J.D. Power and Palantir are working to help auto industry customers, including OEMs, suppliers, dealers, financing companies and insurers, rapidly scale development of new AI-driven solutions. Several auto manufacturers have already integrated the platform into their strategic-planning processes.
Additional solutions already developed leveraging J.D. Power data on Palantir Foundry include the following:
