The Automotive Industry Is One of the Most Project-Intensive Industries

Electromobility, autonomous driving, car sharing, and connected mobility – the automotive industry is facing numerous challenges. Manufacturers and suppliers are spending billions to meet growing mobility demands and develop the next generation of vehicles. 

Increasing competition in the automotive industry requires continuous market innovation with more powerful technologies and features. This leads to ever shorter product life cycles with increasing product complexity. In addition, high demands are being placed on communication and networked working between manufacturers and suppliers. 

Automotive companies need agile and flexible solutions to respond quickly to these industry changes.
