Future of Cars: Birth of the Connected Supplier

March 29, 2016 by Bonnie D. Graham

The buzz: We’re all connected.

Collaboration is not new for automotive sector suppliers. But with digital, real-time computing radically changing how auto suppliers operate and make products, top suppliers need to create connected content for the connected vehicle, in real-time collaboration with their value chain – customers, tier-suppliers, and tech partners.

And as the automotive industry converges with tech – as Delphi, Bosch and other suppliers showed at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) – will car experts drive the digitization or is a new crop of technocrats needed to take the wheel and drive the industry forward?

The experts speak.
