Profitable and sustainable growth for the automotive industry

Car manufacturers, suppliers and dealers are under intense pressure to transform their businesses and prepare for the future of mobility.

Manufacturing and adoption of electric vehicles 

To keep up with global production and sales, manufacturers and suppliers are making more plug-in, hybrid and fuel cell electric vehicles, as well as electric vehicle charging stations, batteries, and more circular parts.

Connected cars and advanced driver assistance systems 

Automakers can embed smart technology, such as LIDAR, ultrasound, and IoT sensors, into their vehicles to appeal to modern buyers – and through a cloud-based vehicle to all (v2x) infrastructure to send and receive car data that can be used to create services. 

Mobility as a service and shared mobility 

Auto OEMs are looking for where they can fit in, especially in the area of employer-supported programs. Car sharing provides opportunities for large companies to meet consumer demand for increased value, convenience, and sustainability. 

Resilient Automotive Supply Chains

On-board technologies and electronic vehicle components add additional requirements to already complex automotive supply chains. Shortages of car batteries and chips threaten to pull millions of cars off production lines. To create more resilient supply chains, automotive companies need real-time visibility from advanced analytics. 

Digital Automotive Retail

Dealerships can use e-commerce technology and CRM data to support omnichannel vehicle sales and other services, such as accepting trade-ins and arranging test drives and deliveries.
