Spin-Off into the Digital Future
The spin-off of the powertrain business area Vitesco Technologies from the parent company Continental poses a complex challenge for the IT, but most importantly it entails potential for innovative changes. For Vitesco Technologies CIO Thomas Buck and his team, this change means establishing an autonomous IT, while ensuring that business processes continue to run smoothly, as well as driving innovation in an agile and dynamic manner. The goal is to design the new IT landscape in such a way that it is ideally aligned with the business model and products.
At the automotiveIT Kongress 2020, Mr. Buck will reveal how he intends to achieve this.
