Automotive's Digital Transformation

TU-Automotive Europe project manager Andy Pym said, "The entire auto ecosystem is undergoing its biggest ever disruption; it is an upending of the entire business model as we know it. We now sit in an industry where responding to mobile tech and consumer trends has seen Uber become more valuable than many traditional OEMs in just 6 years. Automakers now have to innovate and build partnerships at start-up pace or risk becoming another Kodak".

Pym continued, "We are very excited to welcome these executives to TU-Automotive Europe 2016. These are the individuals at the vanguard of our industry. It will be a fantastic platform to hear them address the entire ecosystem, not with soundbites, but the actual strategies that will build solid foundations for the digital automotive industry".
