AIRBUS: Reducing the Abundance of Data with MAPEGY's Innovation Tool

We asked Dr. Christoph Stehncken, Ex-Head of Structures and Technical Authority at Airbus, how he overcame, with MAPEGY, one of today’s biggest challenges, the abundance of data and information, while working at Airbus. Check this out!

Challenge: The Abundance of Data and the Difficulty to Track All of It

During an interview with Dr. Christoph Stehncken, former Head of Structures and Technical Authority at Airbus, he pointed out that one of the biggest challenges for businesses today is the abundance of data that is available, which can make it difficult to stay up-to-date with the latest trends. Also, the sheer volume of data available can make it difficult for businesses to filter through the noise and identify the information that is most relevant to their operations. As a result, businesses may miss out on valuable insights and opportunities to gain a competitive edge in their industry.

Another challenge associated with the abundance of data is the need for effective data management and storage. Managing large volumes of data can be complex and time-consuming, and businesses must ensure that their data storage and management systems are robust, secure, and able to handle the massive amounts of data being generated.

How MAPEGY supported Airbus 

At MAPEGY, we have developed a solution to this challenge through our product SCOUT, which provides users with access to billions of historical and current data points from various industries with just one click. Our software utilizes AI to connect all innovation ecosystems and measure growth and change in real-time, presenting the information in a user-friendly visual format that supports strategic decision-making for giants such as Airbus. Among the numerous features at SCOUT, Dr. Christoph Stehncken and his team were deep diving into the following features:

  • Technology Landscape,
  • Start-ups & partner identification,
  • Competitive Landscape, and
  • Organizational footprint analysis.

In Dr. Stehncken words:

MAPEGY gave us the possibility to get an overview about the technologies that we were interested in working on and to get specific insights and a sophisticated overview. We were really astonished about the tool. It is very powerful and helpful.

And we at MAPEGY are proud to be involved in this!
