Digital challenges

The lead is getting smaller

  • Investment costs: The necessary implementation of digital technologies in the development and production of vehicles requires considerable investment, especially in software solutions and modern hardware components.
  • Data security: The increasing connection of vehicles to the Internet and the use of data analytics increase the risk of data breaches and cyber attacks and necessitate increased investment in appropriate security measures.
  • Talent shortage: Due to the shortage of skilled workers, the automotive industry is already lacking a great deal of expertise, especially in the areas of software development, data analysis and cyber security.
  • Regulations: New digitization technologies such as autonomous driving and the use of data necessitate new regulations and standards to which automotive companies must adapt in order to continue offering their products and services.
  • Integration problems: The connection of different digital technologies and systems can sometimes cause major technical problems (example ADAS).
  • Culture change: Digitalization requires a culture change in the automotive industry, particularly with regard to the use of data and collaboration between IT and manufacturing. Here, it is important to ensure that all employees have the necessary skills and the right attitude for this important change.

The use of recycled materials and the expansion of sharing concepts are also expected to increase.

      What are the benefits of managed services for the automotive industry in terms of cost savings?

      The exact measures taken to ensure availability depend on the customer’s requirements. The availability of applications supported by Managed Application Services can be ensured by various measures:

      Redundancy: The use of redundant hardware and network elements can reduce the probability of failure.

      Resilience: Applications can be configured to run on multiple servers simultaneously to minimize downtime.

      Backup and recovery: Regular backups of applications and data enable fast recovery in the event of a failure.

      Monitoring: The applications and associated systems are monitored to identify and correct potential problems at an early stage.

      Maintenance: Regular maintenance and updates of applications and systems can help to increase availability.

      SLA: A Service Level Agreement (SLA) can guarantee application availability and define availability requirements.

      How can managed services help automate processes in the automotive industry?

      Managed services can help automate processes in the automotive industry by optimizing IT infrastructure and systems. They provide support for the implementation of automation solutions, such as workflow management tools and data analysis software. By integrating IT systems and processes, managed services can achieve efficiencies and time savings for automotive companies. In addition, automated monitoring of processes through managed services can help identify and resolve errors and irregularities more quickly, contributing to improved business performance.

      How can the availability of IT systems in automotive manufacturing be improved through managed services?

      Managed services can improve the availability of IT systems in the automotive industry through proactive monitoring and maintenance. Through the use of disaster recovery and disaster response, managed services can prevent unexpected outages and ensure that business processes run smoothly. Also, by implementing redundant infrastructure, SMASER Managed Services can maximize the availability of IT systems and ensure a secure and reliable IT environment.

      How can managed services help meet compliance requirements in the automotive industry?

      Managed Services keeps the company up to date on compliance requirements in the automotive industry. For example, IT Services provides comprehensive monitoring and auditing of IT systems to ensure that industry regulations are met. In addition, efficient monitoring of data protection policies and security systems through managed services ensures a high level of compliance in the automotive industry.

      How do managed services differ from traditional IT solutions for the automotive industry?

      Managed services differ from traditional IT solutions in that they offer a proactive and comprehensive IT management and support model. In contrast, the traditional IT solution is more of a reactive model, where IT support is only provided when a problem occurs. Managed services also include regular monitoring, maintenance and review of IT systems to prevent future problems. This leads to higher availability and efficiency of the IT systems. In addition, managed services offer a more flexible and cost-effective alternative for the automotive industry.
