A New Driving Force: Automotive “Electric Dreams”
The future of electric vehicles is particularly bright
To capture the promise of a burgeoning electric vehicle market, car manufacturers must adopt a more connected, data-intensive approach to manufacturing to optimize electric vehicle production and satisfy demand.
The benefits are clear. For example, a Connected Enterprise® approach has helped one global automotive manufacturer achieve a 70% reduction in safety downtime and enabled another to improve business performance. Better data integration – plus more accessible and actionable data – are key to the success of these approaches as well.
Beyond the demand for new vehicle configurations by the market, and the demand for new data and connections for more efficient operations, the demand for greater cybersecurity protection goes hand in hand. To avoid breaches, disruption and downtime, automotive cybersecurity solutions must include defenses such as segmented networks, frequent or continuous install base asset inventories, 24/7 threat monitoring and other security measures.
