IDC's Worldwide Next-Generation Automotive Taxonomy, 2018
This IDC study provides a comprehensive overview of the components, use cases, and companies involved in the next-generation automotive market and ecosystem as covered by IDC. The taxonomy also introduces a segment and subsegment breakdown, definitions, and sample companies that participate, support, and define the next-generation automotive area and ecosystem.
"As technologies and contextual experiences increasingly define our relationship with vehicles, it is imperative that all ecosystem participants have a well-defined organizational approach and governance structure to support this key automotive market," said Matt Arcaro, IDC research manager, Next-Generation Automotive.
"The biggest challenge for automotive OEMs today is not only the design and development of complex, connected, autonomous vehicles but also the management of the complex, multiple ecosystems that span people, process, and technology in a unified platform approach. These ecosystems are internal (employees and technology systems) and external (partners, suppliers, and content) and must work in concert," said Jeff Hojlo, program director, Product Innovation Strategies.
