Digital transformation is revolutionizing every aspect of business, including the transportation industry, where technology is upending the traditional view on what it means to be a highly mobile society. As automotive companies navigate this shifting landscape, Chief Information Officers (CIOs) are the technology leaders driving digital transformation within their companies from a strategy, user experience, analytics, operations and/or cybersecurity perspective.


CIOs have been given a level of empowerment and autonomy to push boundaries, drive insights and leverage experiences (cloud, mobility, connectivity, data and security) to accelerate innovation in the automotive industry. But must they go further?


At TU-Automotive Detroit—the world's largest auto tech conference and exhibition, shaping the future of connected auto mobility—HARMAN’s Chief Digital and Information Officer, Nick Parrotta, will take the stage to deliver a keynote presentation delving into this topic. He will address opportunities for automotive CIOs to transcend their traditional roles and drive collaboration, co-innovation and customer value across the automotive industry.
