Decisive, connected, innovative, automated, secured

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

Digital future of automotive

Global trends in urbanization, climate change, digitalization and shifting economic power all pose significant automotive industry challenges. 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 organizations.

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

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