BT is active across the automotive industry, connecting vehicle manufacturers and parts suppliers, dealers and distributors. For automakers, this shift will likely entail breaking up industry verticals and dis-integrating large segments of the industry in response to the overwhelming impending capital requirements. I have been in automotive retail for just 3 months and my first 2 months were appalling. From a negligible position in 1950, Japan in 30 years moved past West Germany, France, Great Britain, and the United States to become the world’s leading automotive producer. Our mission is to ensure that talent is harnessed and retained within the automotive industry.
Further on, as cars are increasingly integrated into the connected world, automakers will have no choice but to participate in the new mobility ecosystems that emerge as a result of technological and consumer trends. It does not have to be disruptive for the industry to be successful and a great product.
The type of city will thus become the key indicator for mobility behavior, replacing the traditional regional perspective on the mobility market.

The increasing presence in the auto industry of technology firms cannot be ignored or downplayed by OEMs.
Through continuous improvements in battery technology and cost, those local differences will become less pronounced, and electrified vehicles are expected to gain more and more market share from conventional vehicles. Most industry players and experts agree that the four trends will reinforce and accelerate one another, and that the automotive industry is ripe for disruption. Horace’s point about the lack of competition in the industry is interesting, because from the customer perspective, there appears to be tremendous competition. Ford and General Motors each played a role in their target market and what social status each consumer belonged to. With passenger car production at 107.5 vehicles per 1,000 persons, the Czech Republic has maintained its supreme position among world automotive leaders in terms of per-capita output. Without a doubt, the American auto industry emerged smaller and more competitive.
The automotive revenue pool will significantly increase and diversify toward on-demand mobility services and data-driven services. Product and operation tests and inspections at different stages of the value chain are made to avoid these product recalls by ensuring end-user security and safety and compliance with the automotive industry requirements. We also provide the collaboration tools that transform the way employees use and share information, so that they become more efficient in everything they do, from research and development to supply-chain management.
