The Weather has an enormous capacity to impact every type of business. Whether it be driving demand for particular products, influencing customer behavior, or putting your services at risk the weather will influence how you do business. Companies that simply react to the weather miss opportunities and lose money every day. You want to be amongst those who have the data needed to anticipate, prepare for and respond effectively to shifts in demand or potential disruptions. At The Weather Solutions and Strategies Events, you will learn from a cross-industry mix of weather and business experts in order to become a weather anticipator as opposed to a weather reactor.

The energy & utility industry is moving towards a fundamental shift in its operations to build a solid foundation for a resilient, reliable, and sustainable infrastructure. This evolution requires a core set of capabilities to maintain the utility social contract of providing uninterrupted power to connected customers. The speed at which this occurs depends on many factors, including vegetation growth and weather events.

Using Weather, Climate and Environmental forecasts to improve airport operations Webcast

March 24th, 11 AM – 12 PM EST

Airline and airport operations weather forecast solutions are critical to helping improve safety, efficiency and performance.

Shipping & global air travel involves greater responsibility. Weather can significantly affect airport operations. Low cloud, fog, rain and snow can impede visibility at or around an airport while thunderstorms and lightning can cause serious disruption to flight schedules. Every decision must account across a wide range of factors, such as safety, timing, aircraft functionality and airline profitability. One of the most critical successful operations relies on the overall understanding of weather’s impact end to end.

Come to this session to hear how airports are using the IBM Weather Operations Operations Center for Airports to continuously monitor weather conditions and stay informed of potential impacts. By using this weather-based solution, they are able to prevent injuries and property damage, reduce the number and cost of cancellations and delays and minimize ground congestion. Solutions from IBM help airlines and airports improve operations with inflight weather data, tracking and decision support. These insights help users control costs, enhance safety and improve efficiency — while enhancing both the shipping for greater visibility into the supply chain and passenger experience.

In this exclusive session, you will hear repeatable client use cases where they planned and responded to disruptive events like weather to ensure business continuity.
