New automotive demands require new thinking

Digital transformation remains top-of-mind for auto companies, but the data-accessing struggle is real. From vehicle design to manufacturing, today's auto sector runs on data. But, if it's not connected and available, operations can't run efficiently. NetApp enables automotive OEMs and suppliers to access and rely on their data so they can act with speed and confidence and also improve customer experience.

Transform with the agility of a mountain goat

NetApp helps you manage data as a connected experience. The goal is to make you nimble enough to perform optimally and transform sustainability in an always-changing industry. Integrate new projects into your existing infrastructure cost-effectively and efficiently. Embrace agility and adapt instantly by unlocking the best of cloud and on-premise.

  • Create a more agile data pipeline and move your business critical workloads to your future-proof destination faster
  • Remove data barriers and enhance decision making
  • Accelerate your business transformation initiatives and drive innovation.

Outmaneuver data silo speed bumps

Disconnected data slows everything down. At NetApp, we'll clear your way forward by helping you deploy the right data, at the right time, in the right place, and at the right pace. Our technologies also have compliance built in, meaning you can enable secure and scalable data movement between all your locations.

  • Extend and migrate secondary workloads and lower-tier apps to the cloud
  • Simplify data management and enable speedy data recovery
  • Make software refreshes faster and backups almost instantly

Manufacturing doesn’t have to be heavy

From an explosion of data to machinery malfunctions, auto businesses deal with a lot. But we can help you build a single, unified platform for your data from edge to core to cloud — across design, development, sales, and your entire supply chain networks.

  • Spot issues and fix them faster with improved quality control and predictive maintenance
  • Automate provisioning of infrastructure to enable real-time production analytics and ML-based insights
  • Add resilience and improve disaster recovery for your industrial environments
