A new Capgemini study provides a holistic view of the automotive IT application landscape, which can help manufacturers make more informed strategic decisions regarding their IT investments.
The automotive industry has been an early adopter of information technology due in large part to the complex, competitive and global environment in which automotive companies operate.
Over the past 30 to 40 years, IT within the industry has witnessed a rapid and somewhat unstructured growth, leading to a complex and fragmented landscape.
This landscape varies significantly across process areas, geographies and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs).
Which solutions are used most extensively by OEMs?
Which application providers are active in a particular process area?
How does your company compare with your competitors in its use of bespoke and package applications?
To better understand the automotive IT landscape, Capgemini conducted a study designed to establish a singleview representation of the IT solutions used across OEMs.
The study seeks to identify which applications are most commonly deployed by vehicle manufacturers and examine how the IT landscape has evolved over time.
The research focused on two key segments of the automotive value chain: supply chain management (SCM) and sales, marketing and service.
These segments were studied across the top 10 OEMs (based on consolidated annual group revenues): BMW, Daimler1, Fiat, Ford, General Motors, Honda, PSA, Renault, Toyota and Volkswagen.
