THE AUTOMOTIVE PARADIGM SHIFT & THE RISE OF THE CYBERTECH TIER
“When a paradigm shifts, everyone goes back to zero.” - Joel Barker, Futurist. We are in the midst of an evolution in the automotive industry that will change the driving experience entirely. In this paper, we review:
The new age of consumers / drivers and how they are changing
The shift to the software-defined vehicle and the underlying technologically capabilities needed to evolve
How the supply chain can adapt to help reduce lifecycle costs and create a secure environment for value added apps & services
The effects of technology disruptors on the automotive industry
The rise of the Cybertech Tier and its value to each respective member of the automotive industry
We cannot control the changes to the needs and desires of today's drivers, but we can make sure that their needs are met sooner as opposed to later. The automotive industry needs to embrace the change in drivers and use it to increase revenue.
