Automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have struggled to capitalize on the promise of software-defined vehicles (SDVs). With roots in hardware engineering, traditional OEMs have enabled new challengers to prove that SDVs are not only possible, but are highly desired by end consumers. Driven to regain or retain their leadership status, those OEMs now recognize the need to embrace SDVs and help chart the future of the automotive experience.
Imagine introducing a vehicle with the ability to continuously download new features through software updates. This is a key aspect of SDVs, and it keeps a car digitally relevant for years to come. The result is a better experience for customers, and for OEMs, faster innovation with less expense.
With cloud-native technologies and a complete digital product transformation, this SDV future can become reality. OEMs need to embrace in-vehicle computer platforms, migrate car software across multiple domains to a function-oriented architecture, and develop the ability to use microservices and containerized deployments.
An experienced technology company can help guide automotive OEMs through this process. With a technology partner to simplify and orchestrate the complex ecosystem, OEMs will leverage the cloud to reduce costs, accelerate innovation, and shorten time-to-market.
