Share Article

On Wednesday 27 March at 2pm, Telematics Update are set to host a live interactive webinar to discuss how to make in-vehicle apps more attractive to 3rd party app developers, with an expert speaker line-up including Volvo Cars and The World Wide Web Consortium.

Providing seamless and continuous content is absorbing significant levels of investment from OEMs as they strive to differentiate their products and keep up with consumer demands. As more and more OEMs build a platform to host their apps, developers are showing an increasingly positive interest. Learning how the OEMs can realign their partnership strategies and platform design to manage the varied expertise of the third party content community is a vital step that must be taken to ensure future product success. To help bring knowledge and direction to this debate Telematics Update has organised a free webinar. It explores how to attract third-party developers to design mobile-grade applications for in-vehicle infotainment (IVI).

As ABI Research recently predicted, ‘Global connected automotive infotainment system shipments are expected to grow from 5.7 million in 2012 to 50.9 million in 2017.’ Therefore defining the optimal company position in the vehicle content market is crucial at this stage.
