November 30, 2011 by John Day
Content & Applications for Automotive Europe 2012 Conference & Exhibition (April 18-19 2012 in Munich, Germany), organized by Telematics Update, will bring together top-level executives from the automotive industry, the mobile applications market and industry solution providers who are focused on building in-vehicle platforms and content that will enable the car to compete with consumer electronic devices.
According to Strategy Analytics, the mobile apps market is set to grow to a $25 billion marketplace by 2015. Compelled by these figures, OEMs have spent the past 12 months, launching their own content and app strategies. Influenced by enhanced smartphone and tablet capabilities many are introducing next-gen content and services through advanced platforms and cloud-based technology.
The content & apps market is at a crucial tipping point. If a real return on investment is to be achieved the automotive industry must decide how they want to work with app developers, the appropriate business models and develop workable open standards.
Content & Applications for Automotive Europe 2012, Conference & Exhibition (18-19 April, Munich, Germany) will provide key information and analysis and help automakers and suppliers spot the revenue opportunities of in-car apps, meet key app developers, understand the potential app business models and predict future in-car content trends and capabilities.
Participating firms include:
Fiat, Ford, Jaguar Land Rover, Volvo, Harman, Continental, Denso, QNX, Chleon, Telenor, GSMA, The Linux Foundation, Sony Ericsson, and many more.
