The car market increasingly requires the integration between mechanical and digital technologies.
To remain competitive in an increasingly technological global market the automotive sector is quickly innovating. Automotive products change along with the production itself, from large manufacturers to components. It becomes enhanced with new systems connected to automation machinery and software for simulation, design, and testing.
The car market increasingly requires the integration between mechanical and digital technologies. From the individual phases of design, production, diagnostics, and the distribution chain up to new means of transport: the automotive sector has a wealth of areas and new needs for industries, dealers, and all that revolves around them.
What follows are some of the challenges that TWT customers have successfully faced in the Automotive sector:
Digital supply chain
The automotive sector is focusing on increasingly smart, sustainable and technological vehicles. Creating these vehicles also requires a technological investment for the supply chain, which is automated by means of software and digital technologies.
The dealer experience has also changed: the customer expects the ease, comfort, and customisation levels of an online purchase on site, with the integration of digital assistants and augmented reality.
Cybersecurity and Data Analytics
The security of data, projects, machinery, and cars is essential, and must be part of a protected system that is ideal for physical and virtual security. Data analysis also allows for production needs, maintenance, rates, production variables, and a whole series of basic information gathered from internal systems (machinery, sensors) or external systems (social networks, emails, etc.) to be mapped and used.
Production and distribution chains, showrooms and digital services for the automotive sector require continuous efficiency, even in case of unforeseen events, in order to protect the business and customer experience. It is for this reason that it is so important to integrate systems with preventive business continuity measures, such as data backup and disaster recovery technologies.
