Software-Defined Transformation

Software is migrating from the periphery of vehicles to their core, in a transformation that implicates every stage of the value chain.

With the rise of smart vehicles, software is taking the driver’s seat. Increasingly, vehicles are being designed and built around the capabilities of a digital core. At every stage of the value chain, this software-defined transformation (SDT) is changing expectations – from manufacturers, regulators, and end customers.

The implications of the coming software-driven model for automotive are far-reaching, creating opportunities and challenges. Capgemini has the experience in IT, digital and engineering to help automotive players create the mobility ecosystem of the future, designed with people at its heart.
