IAM 2017 - INTERNATIONAL AFTERMARKET MEETING
MOBILE SOLUTIONS: OPPORTUNITIES AND CHALLENGES FOR THE AUTOMOTIVE AFTERMARKET
By the year 2020, an entire generation, Generation C (for “connected”), will have grown up in a primarily digital world. Computers, the Internet, mobile phones, texting, social networking — all are second nature to members of this group. And their familiarity with technology, reliance on mobile communications, and desire to remain in contact with large networks of family members, friends, and business contacts will transform how we work and how we consume.
This megatrend is already affecting the automotive industry and the aftermarket. The OEMs are today not only present at Auto Shows but also at the CES in Las Vegas.
This symposium provides an opportunity for the aftermarket community to hear from experts what does that mean for the aftermarket.
The first contribution will concentrate on the Italian Market presented by GIPA, showing the overall framework, the key trends and possible next steps.
In the second presentation IHS will show the long-term outlook for new mobility solutions around the world and look at the impact on automotive demand and the knock-on effects for the aftermarket industry.
In a third part, Bosch will concentrate on the mobility user, the changes in the value chain, because the role of the consumer will change, the speed of innovation due to connectivity and the need of clear legal framework.
The fourth presentation, Tom Tom will show the way from navigation to mobile solutions with BRIDGE. BRIDGE offers a flexible platform where businesses can integrate the power of TomTom technology into their business processes. For the first time, we provide an open hardware platform which enables developers to connect Android based business applications seamlessly with TomTom solutions helping to provide mobility solutions on a single device.
