Driving the automotive industry
Our mobility depends on software more and more. It should give you speed, not slow you down.
The next generation of vehicles will not only offer reduced emissions, but also advanced connectivity and intelligent technology that will enable seamless integration with our digital lives, from entertainment systems to navigation and communications, for a completely reimagined driving experience.
IT plays a critical role in the development of autonomous vehicles, where complex algorithms and sensors work together to ensure safe and efficient self-driving capabilities. This integration of future cars and IT is also driving innovation in cybersecurity, protecting vehicle data and on-board systems from potential cyber threats.
More and more money in the auto industry will come from monetizing value-added services such as software-enabled features, infotainment services for ongoing payments, etc.
The future topics are remote car software updates, sophisticated interconnectivity, automated driving, and so on.
We continuously innovate cars, customer services, and manufacturing.
Mobility is not just about cars
IT has long permeated manufacturing, traffic management, highway construction and the entire transport ecosystem.
Connectivity in automotive: Improving comfort and protecting lives
In the automotive industry, connectivity means integrating technology and communication systems into vehicles. The main benefits of connectivity include improved safety, better navigation, better vehicle diagnostics and much more. It also has environmental advantages - for example, connectivity can provide feedback to drivers on fuel-efficient driving habits, which helps to reduce emissions.
Our projects are changing the trajectory of progress
We brought artificial intelligence into the Group's logistics, for example increasing the capacity of material distribution within factories by 40%. We also migrated mainframe-based applications to the cloud to save money on operations and mitigate operational risks. At the same time, we launched the Power Platform, which enables development by non-developers but is securely managed by the Group's IT department.
We are a key partner for the company for digitalization in many areas (digital B2B touchpoints, connectivity, production, etc.), as well as a reliable partner for operational processes (competence centers for cloud services and Microsoft 365, key application management, etc.).
As part of the Connected Car Group program, Trask became a key supplier for ŠKODA AUTO from the outset in 2015. We helped to build several strong area domains at ŠKODA AUTO, such as the architecture with a strategic overlap taken from VW Group, an indispensable integration team covered by an experienced project management and support from the business departments. All this was transferred to the operations team, which helped prepare the processes in all areas, supported by innovative reporting and monitoring that helped technical support to respond quickly to ŠKODA AUTO’s end customers.
In 2012, in cooperation with ŠKODA AUTO and VW Group, we started to intensively develop our cloud competence. Given the need to address service cost optimization over large multimedia data and to scale systems for large peaks in user load from the outset, we have been working on services in FinOps (such as subscript optimization, individual services, monitoring, tagging and distribution of financial costs, etc.) since its formal inception in San Francisco that year.
Where you can rely on us
Since 2015, we have gained valuable experience from our association with VWG projects, and gained knowledge from reusable lessons on integrating brands with Connected Car services. Our team has been strengthened by experts with specific skills including linking backends across all MOD1-4 generations, used tools and knowledge of automotive vehicle architecture.
We digitize production and quality processes and agendas - from production management to data collection, visualization, and analysis (including AI applications). This improves flexibility and quality in production and delivers high-quality, up-to-date, and accurate data for management and decision-making.
We are building a sophisticated ecosystem of websites. For example, we can integrate a state-of-the-art car configurator into B2B systems. We ensure smooth collaboration between car manufacturers and dealers.
With our FinOps services, we help VW Group calculate the cost of the cloud and then optimize the price. The main goal is to maximize the ROI of any service or application deployed in the cloud. We help to save money, be more strategic, and define the right way to manage product project funding within the company.
Business and data
We bring new sources of profit through 1to1 real-time personalization and great customer experience. We're straightening processes, improving performance, and creating new data-driven services.
Production and process control
We digitize processes in production. We distribute production manuals and documentation in a paperless way and implement systems to control efficiency in production processes. For these purposes, we digitize processes in production and manufacturing to make them not only simple but effective.
We implement integration middleware including API management. We optimize data transfer and unify identities across different systems.
Skills development and training
We emphasize business-oriented training that supports and enables business change and transformation. We use experiential learning to enhance knowledge acquisition.
10 years of experience with the cloud transformation process. Strong, multiple technology expert teams covering end-to-end cloud transformation.
We deliver reliable, scalable, and cost-effective IT operations. We can perform monitoring, maintenance, and technology upgrades. We provide multi-cloud operations and Dev Ops.
