Automotive industry overview

Developments in new vehicle technologies and products, consumer demand and the influence of the Fourth Industrial Revolution are driving unprecedented change in the Automotive industry. These new forms of technology have been a major catalyst for change over the past decade and success is largely contingent upon being able to adapt to the changing environment.

As transportation preferences are shifting towards vehicle electrification, global connectivity, diverse mobility and autonomous driving, the increasing diversity and new services open new revenue opportunities for the Automotive industry.

Why OpenText for Automotive?

Modern drivers are increasingly connected, urbanized and environmentally-conscious. They demand a completely different customer experience, based around new technology features and ownership models. Automotive companies need a digital platform to support the mobility challenges the industry is facing.

OpenText supports the global Automotive industry with the world’s biggest B2B supply chain network providing 24/7 availability, reliability and secure exchange of transactional information. Its unique Enterprise Information Management (EIM) platform also provides Automotive companies with an integrative discipline for acquiring, structuring, describing, governing and accessing information assets, both structured and unstructured, in an intelligent, secure and collaborative way across organizational and technological boundaries.

EIM from OpenText has four interlocking roles for organizations:

The Digital Hub

Only OpenText delivers a central platform for the management, analysis and distribution of information. It provides contextual data and information related to applications which do not have a sophisticated data repository. Using OpenText’s leading Enterprise Content Management solution, a centralized hub of information for all stages of the manufacturing process, helps automakers to reduce development lead times, optimize productivity and improve competitive advantage.

The Digital Backbone

Where business information is stored in silos (CRM, PLM, ERP) across an Automotive enterprise, the OpenText platform becomes a conduit to share references to information locked in other data silos. The business is able to reference, extract, normalize and share that data as required through integration with 3rd party applications.

The Digital Archive

Automakers are required to retain product, manufacturing and business records for the operational life of their products. OpenText Automotive solutions efficiently archive this information and maintain a system of record and live reference to the data, easing access and retrieval for the life of the product.

The Digital Platform

In a business sector increasingly driven by data and ubiquitous connectivity, the OpenText Covisint Identity and IoT platform allows the management of a connected vehicle ecosystem in which people, systems and things are authenticated and authorized to interact securely.
