Automotive and Mobility

The automotive industry is an important growth engine with technologically mature products.

However, currently there is a fundamental change taking place within the industry. Digital business models are finding their way into the classic vehicle business. The single vehicle approach is gradually being replaced by fleet management and platform service solutions. Technological development is being shaped by new drive systems ranging from electric mobility to hydrogen. At the same time, growing connectivity is dramatically increasing the importance of Cyber Security and market participants from other industries and sectors are pushing into the market. We at magility are actively shaping digital change and meeting the challenges of the industry with reliable and innovative strategies. We also support your company in the implementation of a Cyber Security Management System (CSMS) that complies with all UNECE WP.29 specifications and is oriented towards the upcoming ISO standards ISO/SAE 21434 and ISO/AWI 24089.

Smart Cities and Buildings

The building and housing industry has immense growth potential in the course of increasing digitalization and connectivity.

Technical innovations concerning the data-driven, networked and digital living of the future offer potential for new business models, products and services. In the Smart Cities and Smart Homes of the future, sensor technology, AI, autonomous systems and big data platforms will play a formative role.

A growing number of modern and future-oriented mobility concepts such as Mobility as a Service (MaaS) are changing urban planning. Further technological innovations, megatrends and other factors such as the new mobile phone standard 5G, New Work, Building on Sustainability, Neo-Ecology, Silver Society, Digital Living, the “Female Shift” and, last but not least, new cyber security requirements bring further challenges for the construction and housing industry.
