12:50 pm - 1:20 pm Designing a Future-proof Architecture for the Software-Defined Everything Era

Dr. Florian Baumann - CTO - UDS, Automotive & AI, Dell EMC

An extremely expanded ecosystem, new software-based architectures, broadly deployed connectivity and the ability to identify and monetize data are increasingly impacting automotive OEMs’ business models and profit pool. The automotive market beyond 2030 will look quite different compared to today’s, and consequently so will vehicle manufacturers’ traditional operating strategies. The development of a reliable and complete ecosystem is key for future success, both inside and outside the vehicle. The new functionalities found in cars today and expected in the future are not about hardware; instead the industry is entering the “software-defined everything” era. Software-defined vehicles and “functionality as a service” will continue to drive new revenue streams in the future, as well as create cost-reduction opportunities along the entire automotive value chain. 

• See the results of a 2020 Wards Intelligence/Dell Technologies automotive industry survey on future vehicle architectures 

• Learn how to put back-end processes and infrastructures in place quickly to efficiently adjust and scale to the needs of the complex and broader ecosystem of the future
