Software in Automotive

Capgemini can empower you to rethink your business around software.

In today’s automotive industry, software is migrating from the periphery of vehicles to the driver’s seat. At the same time, the industry focus is shifting from products to services.

The concept of software-driven mobility is already redefining the global automotive industry. But that’s just the start of this software-defined transformation in automotive.

Increasingly, not only vehicles, but also organizational structures, processes, methods, and tools are being defined, designed, and operated by software.

Every stage of the end-to-end value chain is affected by software-defined transformation. And it’s also changing expectations – those of manufacturers, regulators, and end-customers.
