Digital Transformation in Automotive

In the near term, automotive companies are exploring software over-the-air (SOTA) and firmware over-the-air (FOTA) updates.

Longer-term opportunities exist in the transfer of content to and from vehicles including insurance tracking and on-demand entertainment content. To be successful, automotive companies must deploy open, reliable and flexible application platforms to the vehicle edge and develop cloud-based products that can monetize them.

Industry Challenges

  • Legacy automotive solutions, both at infrastructure layer and application layer, lack the agility and flexibility required for rapid digital transformation.
  • Connected platforms should be hardware and cloud-agnostic, with no vendor lock-in and must employ open governance to support multiple clouds, on-premises, and edge use cases.
  • Automotive companies that can orchestrate containerized apps securely across any infrastructure, including the edge, will experience significant savings.
