As automakers are creating their blueprints and strategies for connected lifestyle and pervasive connectivity, successful organisations are focusing on both the customer experience and their value network. Managing a supplier network that integrates the car lifecycle into the value chain is the key to delivering the next generation experiences for drivers and passengers.

 

Today’s Connected Car relies on cloud-based software and services, for a reason.
 

For many years, the industry copied the smartphone/app store model for software, but found this approach was less relevant to vehicles than mobile devices. In-vehicle apps made it difficult to tie enterprise services into the vehicle. Services like analytics and over-the-air updates cannot be easily deployed through an app framework.
 

There is a need for a better approach to automotive software and services that provides drivers and passengers with the in-vehicle infotainment that is both safe and convenient. Throughout the vehicle’s relationship with its owner (“Or lifecycle”).
