Disruption of the Mobile Industry - Lessons Learned
We are currently experiencing a massive disruption of several industries by digitalization. Such industries range from the financial sector and healthcare to automotive. The challenges these industries are facing are not a unique - there are significant similarities to what happened to mobile device OEMs during the last decade. Let us focus on the automotive industry as a case study. The automotive industry value chain is approaching a tipping point of disruption. The next 10 years will see more innovations that will impact the automotive industry than we have seen in the previous century. A current car is already a “mini private cloud” - it has the computing power of cluster of computers, has tens of millions of lines of code, is connected and processes gigabytes of data an hour. New innovations will largely come outside the traditional automotive ecosystem and will frequently couple technology innovations with novel user experiences and new business models. Software and analytics will have greater impact than the hardware platform. In this talk we will discuss what are the potential (useful) lessons we can learn from the transformation we have seen in the mobile industry: in technology, ecosystems, business models and corporate organizational aspects.
