Automotive

Accelerating Transformation. Connecting you to Exponential Possibilities.

The Automotive Industry is an industry at cross roads, transformed by the onset of autonomous driving, electrification and vehicle connectivity. It is being challenged by new business models such as shared mobility, evolving customer preferences and regulations on emissions. The cross road brings both, the enormous opportunity of a vastly different world of future mobility and the uncertainty of a volatile and disruptive business environment. Rapid innovation in exponential digital technologies is accelerating change. The solution also lies in adopting and using these technologies. This provides an opportunity to advance the business towards finding creative solutions, new business models, product offering and markets. 

Every part of the automotive value chain is impacted by this transition. Business leaders are therefore exploring transformative strategies centred on adoption of digital exponential technologies to address their business challenges. At WhatNext, we bring the unique capability of unparalleled insights, creative advisory and a global ecosystem of exponential technology partners to address every unique business objective of our clients.
