Automotive Software Factory | Dialogue with high performers - Automotive and beyond

Automotive Software Factory | Dialogue with high performers - Automotive and beyond

September 21, 2021

The automotive industry is undergoing significant technological change. Together with Seerene and the Hasso Plattner Institute , our Partner Wolfgang Bernhart invites you to network with top decision makers in automotive engineering and discuss innovations, approaches and best practices in their industry.

The day will focus on a candid exchange between leading experts. Straight after the event, there will be a boat trip on Griebnitzsee, where participants and speakers will have the opportunity to share their thoughts about the insightful day in a relaxed setting.

The presentations will compare and contrast the status of software development in the automotive industry with the situation in other markets. They will address the prerequisites for industrialized software production and discuss the opportunities and challenges of "agility vs. safety-criticality" and "continuous delivery vs. thorough validation".

In addition, the presentations will highlight efficiency gaps that the automotive industry needs to close to achieve benchmark performance and will demonstrate how to steer relevant software production KPIs with advanced analytics. Broader necessary changes will also be discussed.

The different perspectives will be brought together in the panel discussion in an open forum.
