New Technology will Disrupt Automotive Business Models

In-vehicle technologies and telematics, in particular, will transform the automotive industry. The term ‘connected cars’ refers to devices installed in the vehicle which allow Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication or machine-to-human interaction.

M2M is communication between two single machines with no human interaction. In terms of vehicle telematics, this allows data to be sent from the vehicle to another location and used for vehicle conditioning or to monitor driver behavior.

Connected Car Market Development

According to the latest worldwide market study by Juniper Research, over 62 million vehicles will be capable of Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) communication by 2023 -- rising from just over 1.1 million in 2019.

This adoption represents an average annual growth rate of 173 percent over these 4 years. Juniper believes that V2V solutions will enable low-latency communications between vehicles, notably for the purpose of driver safety.

The new market analysis found that the rollouts of 5G wireless communication networks, anticipated to launch next year, will be the key accelerant behind the expansion of V2V communications.

Juniper has predicted that automotive OEMs will gravitate towards 5G for V2V communication over other technologies, due to its lower latency and high range.


Juniper found that the move towards 5G will expedite commercial deployments and interoperability, and predicted that the U.S. will become the leading market for V2V deployments. Besides, over 60 percent of new vehicles sold in the U.S. market will be V2V-capable by 2023.

In turn, it's estimated that the technology could prevent over 9,300 deaths per annum in the United States, representing about 1 in 4 motor vehicle deaths.

"The safety benefits of V2V are clear, no incumbent technology can provide the network conditions across the entirety of road networks," said Sam Barker, senior analyst at Juniper Research. "5G will be the key facilitating technology of these automotive safety features, however long vehicle refresh rates -- typically around 8-12 years -- will initially hinder mass adoption."

Outlook for In-Vehicle Application Growth

The research findings also predicted that automotive OEMs will explore new strategies to generate revenues beyond the vehicle sale, including in-vehicle content subscriptions. Juniper forecast that revenues from directly-integrated vehicle apps will likely exceed $2.2 billion by 2023.

Juniper has advised that in addition to leveraging 5G networks, OEMs must open up their in-vehicle ecosystems to third parties, in order to accelerate the development of emerging and future automotive content revenue streams.

Digital Transformation Spending Reaches $1.8 Trillion

Ongoing investment in business technology will remain on track, despite concerns about the global economic outlook which continues to evolve in 2022. Enterprise CIOs and CTOs are focused on operational profitability and digital business growth goals that are enabled by strategic IT initiatives. Global spending on the Digital Transformation (DX) of business practices, products, and organizations is forecast to reach $1.8 trillion in 2022 -- that's an increase of 17.6 percent over 2021, according to the latest market study by International Data Corporation (IDC). Many anticipated DX investments will sustain this pace of growth throughout the 2021-2025 forecast period, with a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16.6 percent. Digital Transformation Global Market Development "IDC expects to see aggressive DX technology investment growth in 2022 following a minor slowdown during the pandemic period," said Craig Simpson, senior research manager at IDC .

Flexible Working: Why Company Culture Matters

The main reasons for the Great Resignation are obsolete leadership, fearful middle managers, and a toxic culture that hinders employee engagement. Perhaps that's why some organizations are still struggling with the consideration and development of a flexible working model.  They're incapable of evolving to a more enlightened approach to work where employees are treated with respect. They're stuck in a bygone era of the 20th-century industrial revolution where 'shareholder value' tops all other values, and where spreadsheets and financial data analysis drives all key decision making. We should not be surprised that 76 percent of human resource (HR) leaders now feel that hybrid work challenges an employee's connection to organizational culture, according to a recent survey by Gartner. A 2022 poll of HR leaders reveals the most challenging aspect of setting their hybrid strategy is adjusting the current organizational culture to support a hybrid workforce. In fact,

Energy Sector IoT Cybersecurity Gains Momentum

The electric distribution industry continues to invest in digital transformation projects. Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) technology is becoming a driver for connected electricity meters, which will reach an installed base of 1.3 billion by 2027. AMI growth is prompting utilities and energy suppliers to revisit their IT infrastructure security and device management operations, according to the latest worldwide market study by ABI Research. Energy Infrastructure Security Market Development Digitization of traditional electricity grids and the modernization of the aging energy infrastructure is among the top concerns for utility operators and governments worldwide. Security for last-mile energy consumption applications was frequently overlooked. "However, the introduction of AMI, smart metering, and grid digitization is steadily increasing spending for secure management services, assisting implementers to transition to IT (information technologies) and OT (operational techno
