From Driving on the Test Track, to Driving Data to The Cloud – The Automotive Industry is Going Through Dramatic Changes

by Joseph Brady, Director of Business Development / AWS and Cloud Alliance Lead at Treehouse Software, Inc.


As more automotive companies are also beginning to function as complex technology companies, many are coming to Treehouse Software to explore our comprehensive Mainframe-to-AWS data replication capabilities. A substantial number of these companies have large quantities of valuable data stored on-premises in their mainframe systems, as well as in other data sources (LUW, Open Systems, etc.). The goal is for a company’s various data types to be moved to – and integrated on – the AWS Cloud in order to take advantage of the myriad of advanced analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning technologies. With this integration, it is now possible to build innovative connected products and services for every touchpoint of the customer journey. Providing a personalized, consistent, and engaging automotive experience across various channels has become key to building and maintaining brand loyalty.

A primary advantage of utilizing the AWS infrastructure, is that it can grow and shrink to meet a customer’s needs, and AWS only charges for the resources used. Additionally, AWS DevOps tools help manage complex environments at scale, and can support high velocity demanded by marketing teams. This allows a company to focus resources on building differentiated automotive brand experiences for customers, rather than managing a resource demanding IT infrastructure.
