In February 2021, Ward’s Intelligence released new market research that underscores why it is critical for vehicle manufacturers to redefine operating strategies.
An extremely expanded ecosystem, new software-based architectures, broadly deployed connectivity and the ability to identify and monetize data are increasingly impacting automotive OEMs’ business models and profit pool. The development of a reliable and complete ecosystem is key for future success, both inside and outside the vehicle.
The new functionalities found in cars today and expected in the future are not about hardware; instead the industry is entering the “software-defined everything” era. Software-defined vehicles and “functionality as a service” will continue to drive new revenue streams in the future, as well as create cost-reduction opportunities along the entire automotive value chain.
Luca DeAmbroggi, Sr. Principal Analyst, Wards Intelligence, hosts a panel discussion with Dr. Florian Baumann, Dell Technologies Industry CTO for Automotive and AI; Jeff White, Dell Technologies Industry CTO for Connected Vehicle and Edge Technologies; and James Singer, Dell Technologies Industry CTO for Edge Technologies and Automotive.
Join them as they review the survey results, define the major vehicle electrical & electronic system challenges and how to solve them, and tell you how to prepare for the massive industry pivot that will take place over the next few years:
- View the results of a 2020 Wards Intelligence automotive industry survey on future vehicle architectures, sponsored by Dell Technologies. Ask specific questions about the results.
- Learn what back-end processes and infrastructures will allow you to efficiently adjust and scale to the needs of the complex and broader ecosystem of the future
- Understand the advantages of software defined vehicles and how 5G and AI technologies are used to develop them
- Learn strategies to better monetize data and build a future proof architecture for developing tomorrow’s vehicles
