Capgemini and SAP Work Together to Improve Automotive Sustainability
Capgemini and SAP will collaborate to expedite the automotive industry's transition to sustainability.
Capgemini and SAP will offer cloud products and services to help with strategy, technology, and business model transformation. The programme will help businesses manage their suppliers and supply chains to achieve environmental goals.
Hagen Heubach, global vice president and head of the Automotive Industry Business Unit at SAP, said:
"Sustainability is at the heart of the automotive industry and has to be the foundation of every decision. At the same time, it is essential to clearly understand the customer’s perspective and integrate feedback to ensure success in the digital age.
"We are combining the strengths of SAP and Capgemini to provide our customers with expanded capabilities to define and implement their sustainability strategies.”
Josean Mendez, global SAP alliance lead at Capgemini, said:
“We are proud to be working with SAP on this sustainability initiative to jointly deliver automotive offerings leveraging RISE with SAP transformation value to our clients. Strengthening our solutions and helping our clients with their sustainability agendas signals the positive impact we aspire to for all our customers.”
The management procedures and technologies provided by the joint initiative can help traditional original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), electric vehicle (EV) manufacturers, and supplier organisations increase their competitive edge and value.
This collaborative transformation framework, in particular, can help automotive businesses determine the business value of sustainability and incorporate sustainability management into products and services across their supply chains.
Markus Winkler, executive vice president of Global Automotive at Capgemini, said:
"Facing significant industry disruption, traditional OEMs, EV manufacturers, and automotive suppliers must continually innovate with their products and services while at the same time constantly improving efficiency.
"The joint initiative for automotive with SAP helps our clients adapt to the changing requirements of today as well as plan for the future with a strong and comprehensive industry cloud solution addressing global sustainability.”
