The automotive industry is being reshaped by a number of forces. Technology advancement and Industry 4.0 has fundamentally changed the automobile from a feat of purely mechanical engineering into a connected machine that has much in common with a consumer electronics device. This has ushered in a desire for new driving experiences and business models. Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have had to rethink the way they design and manufacture vehicles from the ground up, augmenting their capabilities across their organization from supply chain and production frontline to R&D and sales. Dealerships must adjust to new expectations around shopping and ownership, ensuring they can meet potential customers with personalized engagement on every channel.
