Driv­ing re­nault Sport For­mula one team’s Dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion jour­ney

Dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion is hap­pen­ing ev­ery­where, even in the field of sports. For­mula One, for ex­am­ple, though it is famed be­cause of the driv­ing skills of its rac­ers, is all about tech­nol­ogy at its core. Watched by over 1.6 bil­lion cu­mu­la­tive au­di­ence each year, ev­ery com­pet­ing team in For­mula One re­quires metic­u­lous plan­ning that can be achieved through ex­ten­sive data gath­er­ing and pro­found anal­y­sis. Com­pre­hend­ing th­ese req­ui­sites, re­nault Sport For­mula One Team (for­merly known as Lo­tus F1 Team) has been work­ing to­gether with Mi­crosoft since 2012 as it drives through its dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion strat­egy.

With ini­tial goals of op­ti­miz­ing busi­ness pro­cesses and en­hanc­ing op­er­a­tional ef­fi­ciency, the part­ner­ship kicked off with the team choos­ing Mi­crosoft Dy­nam­ics AX as its en­ter­prise re­source plan­ning (erp) so­lu­tion in 2012. Utiliz­ing Mi­crosoft Cloud, the team even­tu­ally achieved greater col­lab­o­ra­tion and re­sponse even while on the go in 2015. To­day, re­nault Sport For­mula One Team heav­ily re­lies on tech­nolo­gies such as data an­a­lyt­ics, ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence (Ai), ma­chine learn­ing, and cloud com­put­ing to ul­ti­mately en­able its engi­neers to bet­ter plan and re­port on the per­for­mances of the driver and the car in real time, even dur­ing ac­tual, fast-paced races.

With Mi­crosoft cloud, in­sights can be im­me­di­ately re­trieved and fur­ther an­a­lyzed by re­nault’s engi­neers in its two fac­to­ries based in the united King­dom and france in re­duced time.
