Managing Identities the right way will become a game changer for the automotive industry. Traditionally, the automotive industry has been leading edge when it comes to managing supplier employees. But even there we see massive room for improvement, with new federation standards like OAuth enabling new types of solutions. However, the far bigger challenge is extending IAM and IAG to the full ecosystem, with other business partners, dealers, and customers. The Extended Enterprise is increasingly becoming reality – however, this is not a simple task for the automotive industry with its complex relationships. Beyond that, the Connected Vehicle stands for the need for a quantum leap in Identity Management. The Internet of Things with a number of connected identities within the car and a mass of identities associated with the car – driver, owner, insurance company, leasing company, garage, manufacturer, police, etc. – requires identity-based concepts. The Connected Vehicle will not becoming reality without a strong identity foundation. Besides the manufacturers which are in the center of that evolution, this is also a challenge for their suppliers which participate in both the automotive industry ecosystem and the connected vehicle.
The Automotive Virtual Track is a guideline through various topics. Identity Federation and Cloud Identity Services, the Extended Enterprise, Life Management Platforms and the API Economy (both being essential enablers for the Connected Vehicle), and for sure the Automotive Roundtable deliver the information you need to make the next step towards the level of IAM automotive manufacturers and their suppliers will need in future.
