Across the automotive industry, organizations are using analytics to transform all aspects of their business. In the vast
majority of instances, the analytics performed is on data that is already available within the organization or wider automotive ecosystem, but has not yet been tapped to use its full potential. Analytics can unlock the value held in this data, helping to answer key “what if” questions across the organization and the value chain. For example, what if dealerships could better understand their customers’ digital journey? Or what if manufacturing could improve visibility into parts, assembly and vehicle inventory?
