      The Automotive Industry

      Are you ready for the future of mobility?

      The accelerated growth of electric mobility, mobility as a service, connected vehicles and autonomous driving – mobility in general is being reimagined and the automobile industry is looking for ways to meet the requirements coming with it. Automobile manufacturers, suppliers, and dealerships face unprecedented challenges, from business process modernization, dynamic market conditions, sustainability to changing customer expectations. Today, the business models are far more complex than merely driving a car from A to B. Mobility has evolved into a digital ecosystem fundamentally changing the business, forcing market participants and their organizations to embark on a digital transformation journey to stay relevant.

      Your partner for the new mobility era

      When entering the new mobility era, you need a partner who is an expert in digital transformation of processes and systems and knows the ins and outs of the automobile industry. Our transformation experts have gained extensive experience and a deep technical understanding of automotive processes through numerous projects at VW, BMW, Toyota, and MAN among others. From 2021, Natuvion has been TISAX-certified, documenting our compliance with standards in information security for the automotive industry.

      Our Automotive Service Portfolio


      Digital Platform Transformation – for large, multi-national Systems

      Automotive group organizations typically manage extremely large IT systems, consequently turning any transformation project into a very complex undertaking. Aspects of driving complexity include the need to address region or country dependencies as well as economic requirements. All these areas have to be considered when planning a platform transformation such as the transition to SAP S/4HANA.

      Natuvion knows the different perspectives and manages all aspects of such a transformation. Our holistic transformation approach, starting with the planning, through the preparation to the technical implementation, leverages proven methodologies. Success and quality of a transformation project also depend on the right tools.

      At Natuvion we offer a set of transformation tools including Natuvion SOPHIA, Natuvion Data Conversion Server (DCS) and Natuvion CORA. These tools support the automation of phases ensuring highest results in the long run. 



      Near Zero Downtime for Just-in-Sequence-Production

      The more a company is exposed to globalization and interconnected systems, the smaller the window a system downtime is acceptable. The automobile industry’s just-in-sequence production presents a specific challenge to the selected migration approach and the maximal possible system downtime window.

      There is a strong push for transformation approaches that require little to no business disruption at all. Natuvion solutions are on top of it. Our Near Zero Downtime methodology allows you to continue with your daily business with near to no limitations while simultaneously executing your transformation project. The Natuvion DCS consists of several smart solutions which intelligently minimize migration-related interruption to almost zero.



      Data Privacy & Compliance

      Companies must comply with GDPR regulations. As to the automotive sector, the digitization of features and services makes it increasingly important to pay extra attention to potential compliance issues to not run the risk of violating data privacy and compliance laws.

      At Natuvion, it is part of our core business to support companies with implementing data privacy and compliance regulations. Our services range from anonymization and pseudonymization of personal data to the introduction of a sustainable data protection compliant Information Lifecycle Management. Our impressive track record of successful GDPR and compliance projects is largely due to our powerful tool set that accompanies our expertise.
