Episode Description

The buzz: “…all cars...will become less like metal boxes and more like integrators of multiple technologies, productive data centers ... components of a larger mobility network.” (mckinsey.com) After a 10th year of market recovery in North America, the automotive industry evolution is at a critical juncture, as the volume of personally-owned vehicles–purchased by households and parked for 70%+ of the vehicle’s lifetime–is beginning to taper. Reflecting on what they learned at the 2018 AASA Technology Conference, our panel will discuss opportunities in the automotive aftermarket and a new breed of aftermarket suppliers. The experts speak. Chris Gardner, AASA: “My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me” (Jim Valvano). William “Bill” Newman, SAP: “A strategic inflection point is a time in the life of business when its fundamentals are about to change” (Andrew S. Grove). Join us for Aftermarket 4.0: From Digital Process to Digital Products.
