Today, with so many businesses becoming a digital business. Driven by the scaled deployment of connected solutions and advances in cloud analytics, digital transformation is changing the way the transport sector operates and delivers services to their customers. 

Join us on our Spotlight Webinar with Stephen Brown, NZ Country Manager for Directed Technologies OEM business, as we explore the application of telematics, IoT and emerging low powered networks (e.g., NB-IoT and 5G) within vehicle OEM’s and the wider transport sector as core building blocks for standardising access to the connected vehicle.  
We will discuss the real-world application of data analytics to improve business operations and describe a vision for the future where vast data lakes (the collective brain) will drive a new generation of vehicle-to-vehicle service mix.

Stephen Brown will offer insights into this rapidly evolving market and will also touch on the positive impact leading OEMs will have as they ramp up their factory connected vehicle programs and its impact on downtime, service monitoring and maintenance programs.

This webinar was recorded on the 16th of June 2021.
