The Cloud Opportunity is Compelling
Cloud solutions offer benefits along implementation, operational, and business dimensions. They provide companies the flexibility and agility they need to compete in today’s changing Automotive market as old and new players alike try to capitalize on the transition to electric, autonomous vehicles.
Companies are not willing to trade off the PIP features that directly impact their success drivers – quality, innovation, reliability, performance, and product cost.
Cloud Computing without Tradeoffs
With the right cloud solution Automotive companies don’t have to choose between capabilities and the cloud. They can leverage the functionality they need to compete and gain value from them faster than previously possible.
Automotive companies face a number of challenges in order to leverage the benefits of the cloud, including security, which should be addressed through SLAs, standards, and audit procedures. It’s important to understand, though, that in many ways cloud deployments actually help with these challenges by offering shared services with dedicated specialists.
Cloud Adoption in Automotive will Accelerate
We see cloud PIP adoption accelerating in the Automotive industry, providing compelling benefits. We expect to see cloud solutions become a primary option as manufacturers seek to compete with innovative, new companies in new categories like ECAV.
