It is your job to shape the group’s software activities. How will the brands collaborate in the future?
We are setting up a joint software organization, particularly from within the main brands Audi, Porsche, and Volkswagen. There, we will create a common software platform for all brands, which will be used in a binding manner. This organization will be at several locations, making it possible for colleagues to work at their home locations for this common software stack.
Will all software be created in the Software division in the future?
The goal is to increasingly separate hardware and Software from each other.
In the future, the Software division will be primarily responsible for producing the software that is used for digital products in our vehicles and mobility services. This also includes the software for vehicle-to-vehicle communication, backend, and cloud solutions, for example. Hardware-related software will continue to be developed in Technical Development.
