The recently held SAP sponsored Best Practices for Automotive conference talked about predictive analytics and data driven intelligence to dramatically improve the bottom line. A good digital infrastructure has become a necessity for automobile companies. Predictive analytics goes beyond helping companies get ahead of scheduled factory maintenance downtime to avoid delivery delays. It can further help to raise effectiveness in areas ranging from fleet management, to a better managed supply chain, to new vehicle design.
Trends are shifting and self driving cars will soon be a common scenario. Increased connectivity will drive the automotive companies to implement ways to protect drivers’ personal data and to ensure the vehicle is not hacked.
