Disruption Ahead: The Fast-Changing Auto Industry
Modern automobiles are measured more by computing power than horsepower.
In fact, a modern auto is the ultimate mobile computer, able to go from zero to 60 in 6-8 seconds, and containing twice as many lines of code as Windows Vista. This increasing software content is setting a wave of disruptive changes in motion that reach every corner of the auto industry.
Of course, anytime you mix computers and mobility, you also very likely have the need for an intelligent VPN. Read our knowledge brief, Connected Opportunities: Intelligent VPNs in the Mobile Automotive Revolution to learn about what’s to come, and a VPN’s role in areas such as:
- Internet-connected cars
- Diagnostics and repair
- Automotive manufacturing
- Truck, bus and equipment manufacturing
- Fleet tracking
- Auto clubs
- Dealer retail
- Research & development
The bottom line? Technology will play an increasing role in the auto industry.
If you own or drive a car, you’ll likely be fascinated by the changes that are happening in the auto industry right now and those that are just a short ways down the road. But even if you do not own or drive a vehicle, it is incredibly likely that new auto technologies will impact you at some point anyways, as these technologies are translated across other industries. This has the potential to disrupt many other industries into the future and we believe that auto industry disruption is simply a precursor to other areas of technology evolution, including: logistics, shipping, healthcare, and first responders.
