Jacobs and Palantir Technologies announced on Wednesday that the two companies have formed a strategic collaboration in order to target data and technology solutions for the challenges in the infrastructure and national security markets.

“Jacobs’ leadership in the water sector and proven Industrial AI and software solutions, combined with Palantir’s best-in-class platform, will deliver innovative solutions to our global network of water infrastructure clients,” said Jacobs Chair and CEO Steve Demetriou. “And in the process, unlock new opportunities to create a more connected and sustainable world.”

The immediate focus between the two companies will focus on the water sector, which involves the launch of a joint data analytics offering to support public and private sector clients in solving their most complex water infrastructure problems. 

In addition, Jacobs and Palantir are collaborating to develop solutions to respond to the critical data and cybersecurity challenges as well as managing and optimizing water and wastewater treatment plant operations. 

“Palantir is proud to partner with Jacobs to revolutionize water treatment and looks forward to working together across sectors tackling the world’s most pressing problems,” said Palantir CEO Alex Karp. “Jacobs’ vision, technical expertise and speed of execution make Jacobs an ideal partner for Palantir.”

Jacobs will leverage its existing O&M portfolio, as well as proprietary machine learning modules and wastewater process optimization tools, and combine their capabilities with the Palantir Foundry operating system, which connects day-to-day site operations with AI to optimize power, chemical usage and asset management.

The expectation is the combined analytics and insights from Jacobs and Palantir will help increase plant performance, reduce lifecycle costs and secure plants from cyber threats while supporting regulatory compliance and realization of ESG goals.
