Why are IT and software specialists becoming increasingly important to automotive manufacturers? What sets them apart, what approach do they contribute? Which IT innovations are shaping the automotive future? And what are the challenges during development? Andrea Morgan-Schönwetter, Head of Recruiting & Talent Marketing at Volkswagen, and Dr. Max Senges, CEO and Headmaster of 42 Wolfsburg, explain what makes the difference to Alina and Vincenzo.
- Digitalisation and automation require IT talents in the automotive sector. This affects almost every area, including production and logistics, vehicles and mobility services, but also recruiting and other areas of application.
- The challenge of software development lies not only in the products and technologies, but also in ethical and societal questions, such as: How can we do business responsibly and generate societal added value?
- Openness and collaborative learning play an important role in IT development; at the same time, the working environment is changing towards new work and the integration of various disciplines and opinions for innovative solutions.
