Transforming digital core for automotive

Capgemini empowers global automotive companies, OEMs, and suppliers to create agile business models and connected mobility ecosystems that adapt rapidly while meeting sustainability, profit growth and customer advocacy goals.

There is a race to lead the new automotive era as the industry embraces its software-driven, customer-centric future – and Renewable Enterprises will be in pole position. 
Together, SAP and Capgemini are bringing ‘Digital Core for Automotive’ to life, an automotive-specific architecture around a new SAP S/4HANA® digital core with cloud-native solutions and intelligent technologies from Capgemini, SAP, and third parties.
It provides the key ingredients for the Renewable Enterprise in automotive.​

“Automotive is in the middle of disruptive transformation. Players must redefine themselves toward sustainability and responsibility, and as an industry, evolve from our manufacturing heart to a customer-centric and intelligent industry.”

Markus Winkler, Executive Vice President – Global Automotive Sector

What we do

Next Destination: Software

The transformation of the automotive industry is accelerating and software is firmly in the driver’s seat. We surveyed 572 global automotive executives and interviewed 17 automotive industry executives to understand how software is delivering significant benefits to automotive OEMs today.

AutoCloud for suppliers

Thriving in a time of disruptive megatrend demands; leveraging the benefits of cloud technology. Resilience balanced with agility is key. Accelerators such as systems preconfigured for automotive suppliers means you can get up and running on SAP S/4HANA in a matter of months.

Intelligent Assistant for Automotive app

Automotive companies have data. The challenge is extracting data in real-time and making that data work for you. The Capgemini Intelligent Assistant for Automotive app (CIA4AUTO) leverages the power of SAP data to provide focus on the right data now.
