24,000 sensors in each of Air France/KLM's A380s. I wondered about the value just to Air France/KLM from its fleet and the value shared across all operators of all 380 fleets.
Just analysing internal data is not a complete picture; all 380's would give a complete picture for better insight, better predictive analytics. Combined with all customer data and an Aladdin's Cave of Insight beckons. Add in unstructured external data including Social Media. But then who retains the competitive advantage?
Evolving ECOSYSTEMS could be a catalyst for sharing data. Then you face the thorny question of GDPR- was the data freely given for he purpose now envisaged by digitally transformed enterprises? And the increased focus on the true value and costs platforms like Uber and Airbnb deliver.
"Many tech titans have a libertarian bent that makes them dismissive of the public sector as a whole. Uber became infamous for simply going into new markets guerrilla style, disrupting first and asking questions later."

Technology is the least of the challenges facing digital leaders.
For example, Air France/KLM. Each of the airline's A380 aircrafts contain roughly 24,000 sensors, which generate 1.6 GB of data per flight from Smart meter technology. The company utilizes this data to detect breakdowns before they occur. Using the smart meter analytics technology, Air France can now detect potential needed repairs 10 to 20 days before they occur. This prevents immobilization of the aircraft, which is not only expensive for the company, but also impacts their overall level of customer service and revenue.
