In an industry-first collaboration intended to transform the way automakers, dealers, insurers and financing companies leverage data-driven insights, J.D. Power on July 25 announced a collaboration with Palantir Technologies Inc. to develop generative artificial intelligence (AI) and predictive analytics solutions that will facilitate deeper insights and more strategic decision making by the automotive industry.
J.D. Power will leverage Palantir Foundry and AIP to help integrate its industry-leading automotive datasets, including incentives, retail sales, valuations, vehicle configuration, service and warranty, new and used inventory, and automobile customer experience data to support the development of new analytics models and workflow solutions which will help address some of the auto industry’s toughest issues.
These 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 Dave Habiger, J.D. Power president and CEO. “As a result of our work with Palantir, our clients are now able to create unique insights that were previously impossible.”
Together, J.D. Power and Palantir are making it possible for auto industry customers, including OEMs, suppliers, dealers, financing companies and insurers, to rapidly scale the development of new AI-driven solutions drawing on the industry’s most trusted and authoritative datasets. 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:
