A wide range of new developments – from connected cars and digitalized manufacturing processes to electromobility – is expanding the traditional value chain in the automotive industry. Significant drivers of this development are the digital transformation and changing customer behavior, forcing carmakers to transform into mobility service providers and suppliers to evolve into systems providers.
Driven by price pressure, mobility, digital sales and technological advances, carmakers, original equipment manufacturers (OEM), suppliers and retailers can only survive if they promote innovative solutions and restructure their IT. Mobile vehicle services, secure communications with the back end of the automotive industry, cloud computing and big data analytics are becoming more and more important. Lufthansa Industry Solutions is helping the industry to face these challenges with its professional expertise in the fields of agile software development as well as program and project management, for example.
