Big data is not a new phenomenon in the automotive industry. The increasing presence of connectivity, with short-to mid-terms promising high-speed/high-bandwidth connectivity like LTE (long term evolution) in the car, is one of the key reasons for pursing big data in the industry. The shift is taking place due to the need to cut down on spiralling warranty costs and to create a data sharing network between the dealer, customer, OEM and others.

Participants of this web conference will learn about key big data features and services, understand societal, technological and other related challenges, as well as identify ways to evolve under the existing value chain.

"There is an increasing need to cut down spiralling warranty costs, especially the ones caused due to software failure, which was the reason for 60 percent of the recalls," says Mr. Manohar. "Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) need data related to the vehicle's age, performance, and failure scenarios to reduce warranty spend."

Frost & Sullivan expects 60 percent of the North American OEMs to come up with their big data strategy and offerings in the next two years enabled by the move to high bandwidth embedded connectivity technologies like LTE. OEMs develop different approaches to reach their targets; the killer OEMs will be those that can use predictive data analytics to impact a 1-3 percent reduction in warranty costs along with other important software and firmware over-the-air-updates.
