Welcome to the Cloud Wars Minute — your daily news and commentary show, hosted by Cloud Wars Founder Bob Evans. Each episode provides insights and perspectives around the “reimagination machine” that is the Cloud.
00:32 — Over the last several years, the lines between technology companies and traditional companies claiming to be tech companies, have become blurred. Notable industries include the financial industry, retail, and logistics.
00:50 — The Renault Group is now considering itself a technology company, largely on the strength of its relationship with Google Cloud — the Renault Group says this is just the beginning. Together, the two companies have created the notion of a software-defined vehicle. This idea is yet another example of blurred industry lines.
01:22 — Bringing together the best of the automotive and digital worlds, the Renault Group is created a software-defined vehicle (SDV). A large foundation of this creation relies upon a digital twin that is “crammed with the most advanced artificial intelligence (AI) abilities.”
01:40 — An AI-powered digital twin will allow new capabilities to constantly be funneled into the vehicle, which will be tuned around the notion that it is learning from the driver — all of which is geared toward creating a better customer experience.
02:02 — The Renault Group says it will transform the entire operational model to the cloud which will enable better performance, agility, and profitability.
02:17 — While this is not a brand-new idea, it’s just one of the more accelerated examples and sophisticated models of these ideas that we now see in general. The CEO of the Renault Group discussed how the electronic architecture of the vehicle will enable the company to deliver on what more customers want.
03:26 – The digital evolution of non-tech-related business is accelerating and moving faster than ever before. Is your company leading in this? In the middle? Falling behind?
