28 Sep 2021

Capgemini positioned as a Leader by Everest Group in its Exploring the Future of Mobility: Autonomous, Connected, Electric, and Shared (ACES) Mobility Automotive Engineering Services PEAK Matrix® Assessment for 2021 Report. Capgemini was recognized as a Leader for its vision and capability to deliver services successfully and ability to create market impact among 23 engineering service providers evaluated for this assessment.

The Leaders segment includes a mix of broad-based IT heritage firms and engineering service providers. These engineering players have indeed developed dominant capabilities in offering multi-disciplinary automotive engineering services.

Capgemini was recognized as a leader by Everest Group for its key strengths, including its:

  • ability to deliver high-impact engagements (in areas such as advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), e-mobility and in-car infotainment) owing to its strong experience around next-generation themes, accompanying the industry transition from hardware to software-driven vehicles
  • strong focus on product development and other parts of the automotive engineering value chain
  • strong automotive partner ecosystem, which offers a full suite of solutions across new technology themes
  • robust inorganic growth strategy bolstered by the acquisition of Altran, and the introduction of the new Capgemini Engineering brand, which has significantly added to Capgemini’s capabilities in the Automotive ER&D space and helped grow its client base

Capgemini’s strengths as a Leader in the ACES Automotive Engineering PEAK Matrix® assessment lie in its portfolio of offerings, which comprehensively cover each of the four sub-segments, the key value chain functions, and the underlying domains. Its investments into labs and facilities in emerging technology areas, such as Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) testing, Engine Control Units (ECU) design and development, active and passive safety, electric drivetrains, and augmented reality, are well complemented by its ability to offer talent at scale from onshore and nearshore geographies. It also places significant focus on ecosystem orchestration which is visible through its partnerships with consortiums, Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), operating system (OS), and tool vendors. Its competence in electrical/electronic (E/E) architecture and embedded systems has helped it deliver value to customers, who in turn appreciate its consistency, quality, and reliability in ongoing engagements,” said Akshat Vaid, Vice President at Everest Group.

This recognition is a testimony to our continued investments in becoming a full-stack service provider in the automotive engineering space with capabilities across research and development, product engineering, design, consulting, manufacturing services, software development and aftermarket,” said Alexandre Audoin, Group Industry Leader for Automotive at Capgemini. “Capgemini’s Intelligent Industry strategy enables us to deliver agile solutions when developing intelligent and cognitive products and platforms. As the industry transitions from hardware to software-driven vehicles, Capgemini is equipped to offer clients’ solutions that are safe, secure, connected with robust customer experiences.”
