Decisive, connected, innovative, automated, secured

Digital is transforming the automotive industry. Every aspect of production, ownership, on-road experience and environmental impact is disrupted by advances in digital technology.

Digital redefines the future of automotive


Global trends in urbanisation, climate change, digitalisation and shifting economic power all challenge the automotive industry directly. The new automotive business model is customer service-centric. In this new world, mobility becomes both shared and autonomous.

Rigid barriers between automotive and other sectors dissolve too. The rise of electric vehicles, for example, creates new synergies between automotive and urban infrastructure organisations.

Massive change occurs inside the factory and the supply chain, as ever-more advanced robotics, data analytics and virtualised computing models gain momentum.

And as increasingly customer-centric automotive models come to dominate the industry, so the need for balanced agility and data security increase in importance.

As a partner, Atos has the automotive, the manufacturing and business technology knowledge needed for the digital transformation ahead.

PWC estimates that up to 20% of all vehicles will be autonomous by 2030.*
