As an example, the companies said in a joint statement “flight disruptions can be actively managed by GE with customer experience being managed by Teradata.”

“With the combined solutions, the process to manage disruptions is more complete by adding information about managing parts inventories, logistics, scheduling, and labor pools,” the companies said.
