Founded in 2014, Tantalum Corporation is a leading company within the connected cars and telematics industry. With cloud technology, mobile broadband, and sensor technology, it is a lot easier now to put data to work to make life easier for drivers, auto manufacturers, and service providers.
Tantalum and SAP are working together through the SAP Vehicles Network solution to improve the driving experience, a collaboration that will result in finding and paying for services like parking and fueling with just one click.

Having that much real-time data opens lots of new doors that we are not even aware of yet.”
