This special report by Automotive World considers the increasingly important role that data centres are playing in the evolution of the global automotive industry.
It is difficult to overstate the importance of data to the future of mobility. It is also difficult to overstate the importance of automakers defining coherent and sustainable data management strategies.
Such strategies must include an early decision on whether to invest in in-house data centre capacity, and all of the associated costs and management that this entails; or to outsource top specialist third-party providers, ceding some control but also remaining free from such capital-intensive non-core activities.
There are benefits and challenges to each approach, and there is an argument for a hybrid approach. Whatever is decided upon, it must be safe, secure, future-proof and sustainable.
