07:41 EDTCATWhistleblowers allege bogus repairs by Caterpillar unit, WSJ says
Caterpillar subsidiary Progress Rail Services is the subject of a previously reported criminal investigation by a federal prosecutor and current and former employees at the unit allege that railcar inspection workers face pressure to produce billable repair work and sometimes broke clients' cars on purpose or replaced parts that weren't broken, reported The Wall Street Journal. Note that in November 2013 Caterpillar disclosed in a regulatory filing that Progress had received a grand jury subpoena from the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, though the Journal said that few details were available at that time.

11:01 EDTCATCaterpillar announces new Analytics & Innovation division
To better capitalize on the growing importance and excitement of data analytics and to drive innovation to support customers, Caterpillar announced the formation of a new division, Analytics & Innovation, which will be led by Caterpillar Vice President Greg Folley. The division will bring together the people and resources that will foster a culture with innovation at the core, form a broad and connected analytics ecosystem and manage strategic third party relationships with providers like Chicago, Illinois-based Uptake, a start-up with which the company recently announced a technology and predictive analytics agreement. Caterpillar will co-locate key employees with the Uptake team in Chicago to accelerate the work needed to create a platform that takes massive amounts of data, combines it with data science to understand patterns and quickly deploys information to save customers money, optimize performance and prevent unplanned downtime. The company is also placing resources in the Silicon Valley and has seeded money in a venture capital fund with the goal of investing in emerging technologies that could further enhance Caterpillar's product and service development. All of these activities under the umbrella of the AI division will complement the innovative work that thousands of Caterpillar employees are already doing around the worldó a trait that has been critical to Caterpillar's success since the formation of the company 90 years ago.
