Enterprise management for automotive

Software-driven transformation is key to getting the future you want.

When it comes to innovations in the automotive industry, visible developments such as EVs, mobility services, and autonomous driving usually attract most of the attention from customers and media.

However, successful automotive companies know that none of their high-profile breakthroughs is possible without effective enterprise management systems. Companies’ agility and operational efficiency depend on their ability to deliver, transform, and operate their core IT systems, processes, and business applications.

Optimize your system and cloud landscape for ultimate operational efficiency and sustainability.

Capgemini’s many successful enterprise management engagements often involve the use of cloud-based software within ERP operations.

Our collaboration with SAP centers on our Digital Core for Automotive offer. This brings clients an automotive-specific architecture around SAP S/4HANA®, complete with cloud-native solutions and intelligent technologies from both Capgemini and SAP, as well as from third parties.

Our SAP S/4HANA® Cloud for Automotive Suppliers offer leverages cloud technology to help suppliers achieve best-in-class agility, together with intelligence, proactivity, and smart innovation.

With accelerators such as systems that are preconfigured for automotive suppliers, you can be up and running in just a few months. And Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) delivery slashes IT’s maintenance burden without sacrificing any of SAP S/4HANA®’s rich functionality.

One innovation scenario developed under SAP S/4HANA® Cloud for Automotive Suppliers is our Intelligent Assistant for Automotive app (CIA4AUTO) .

Available on SAP’s app store, this continually scans SAP data relating to transactions, postings, and events to provide your staff with early warning of anomalies and potential supply chain issues.

Our Supplier Integration for Automotive app gives both your business and your supplier-employees an additional level of transparency related to the role of the supplier-employee within a legal entity of the supplier’s network of companies.

The benefits are many – and are shared by both the employer, and the employee.

A data-driven approach to supply chain management is the strategic way forward for supply chain strategists and planners. Successful supply chain leaders rely on data to effectively manage the demand versus supply equation.

Capgemini’s Order Simulation for Automotive on SAP is an innovative SaaS solution that predicts future configurations for millions of automobiles to be manufactured. This employs a powerful data-driven approach to supply chain management that provides manufacturers and their suppliers with a correct simulation of future sales orders. This tool can also predict parts demand, proactively optimize shopfloor performance, belt cycle and set-up time, determine production strategy, predict potential downtime and so on.
