Intellias, global software engineering and consulting services provider to the mobility industry, and DMI, technology solutions and digital strategy consultancy, announced a partnership to bring software-defined vehicles to life. Both companies agreed to join efforts and support global car manufacturers and Tier 1 suppliers to provide solutions to the challenges of implementing software-defined mobility solutions and generating new revenue streams. Intellias and DMI will leverage their strong footprints in Europe and the U.S. as well as comprehensive in-vehicle and connected vehicle platform expertise to support customers on a global scale.
Current vehicles include more than 100 million lines of code as well as a sophisticated Electronics/Electric (E/E) architecture that is becoming more and more centralized. Vast software engineering expertise is needed to transform vehicles and realize end-to-end architectures, which combine on-board and off-board services that bring user experience to a new level. In addition, automakers must now become collaborative software mobility companies and undergo significant transformation.
Unique, Value-adding Competencies
Each company brings a unique set of competencies to the mix. While DMI is heavily focusing on company transformation and connected vehicle program consulting and execution as a key prerequisite and enabler for new software-defined business strategies, Intellias supports customers with product engineering in form of design and implementation of embedded and cloud-based software solutions. When developing future-proof connected vehicle ecosystems with superior customer experience, customers will be able to capitalize on the joint strengths of both partners.
We are excited to team up with DMI to bring digital innovation and business strategies to our customers and to transform their solutions and processes.
We believe that this partnership will enable us to address customer needs and market demands more holistically and give our customers a competitive edge in the disrupted mobility industry.
Software Expertise and Transformational Knowledge for the Mobility Industry
Cars and mobility of today are inconceivable without software from Intuitive HMI interaction; new levels of vehicle automation and driver assistance enabled by Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning algorithms; and ubiquitous connectivity.
“Being a software engineering company with more than 20 years of experience Intellias is a key enabler in bringing innovative software-defined vehicle solutions to life. As an independent partner we support our customers along the whole value chain of software solution development and across the whole software life cycle,” said Odukha. “Leveraging deep technology know-how across the whole automotive domain, we combine agile development with established automotive processes and requirements such as Functional Safety.”
In addition to the technical realization of innovative solutions, the future of mobility demands enterprise-grade transformation in both processes and organizational structure of established companies to support continuous strategy and innovation.
“At DMI, we enable success for our clients by focusing on rapid value creation and results,” said Heinze. “We introduce organizational agility, customer experience, composable architecture, operations culture, change management, and in-depth connected vehicle tech capabilities.”
