Automotive

Integrating the IT innovations which are essential to the challenges of transforming players in the automotive market

Faced with significant environmental challenges and an unfavourable economic climate, the automotive market is changing rapidly. All players actively participate in it, both from a technological point of view (automation and connectivity of vehicles) and from the point of view of transport "consumption" modes (new ways of sharing, etc.) and of the use made of it (multimodality, etc.). In addition, environmental challenges naturally lead to changes in vehicle propulsion methods (hybridisation and electric/hydrogen). 

As a result of the technological development of IT/OT, manufacturers and equipment suppliers develop products and create new services while also providing answers to customer requests. The Information System (IS) must therefore adapt to the ongoing changes of a domain that is undergoing a historic period of transformation. 

Manufacturers and equipment suppliers are experiencing a digital transformation in which it is necessary to integrate the flagship innovations related to the processing of bulk data, AI and blockchain, new uses and technological developments in the automotive sector such as Connected/Electric/Autonomous Vehicles, while relying entirely on a Cloud infrastructure.

What's more, the development of consumer patterns and the demand for personalisation are reflected in a necessary shortening of the Time to Market (TTM), which manifests itself in an improvement in production times. The services provided must adapt to this race against time by implementing new work methods, project management, the implementation of new tools, the automation of processes and greater agility.

Finally, it is necessary to take into account an increasing demand for quality and safety, and increasingly sophisticated equipment, all with ever more limited production costs.

Towards greener, efficiency-focused and smarter production

We help manufacturers and equipment suppliers manage new industrial-production and data-processing systems effectively.

A strategic partner that supports the digital transformation for all the IS components of car manufacturers and equipment suppliers:

  • Put digital continuity into action in your connected factory projects (Factory 4.0) - from IoT implementation to production management (ISA 95 Standard framework)  
  • Implement business process automation tools
  • Manage your data from connected vehicles
  • Set up a traceability system for stocks which are secured using blockchain technologyimproving customer relations through the increased digitalisation of the customer path – product customisation
  • Introduce innovative solutions to improve Time to market, security and customisation in particular.
