Dallas/Amsterdam, September 1st,  2021 – Pirelli and o9 Solutions will partner for the digital transformation of Pirelli’s Integrated Business Planning. o9, the premier AI-powered platform, is already being used by the premium tire company for the long term strategic planning and soon will be live also for the Global Demand Planning and Supply Planning of the company.

Using o9’s Enterprise Knowledge Graph technology, Pirelli can run different scenarios and evaluate them based on different indicators for all categories, channels, and countries across all time horizons within an interconnected platform, instead of disparate Excel spreadsheets.
