At LexisNexis Risk Solutions we have commented in a series of blog articles about the technology forces impacting on the automotive OEMs and the fast rising volume of data-derived revenues for the vehicle makers. With connected vehicles – and ultimately autonomous vehicles – tapping the new revenue streams means the auto manufacturers, insurers and other partners must build out their expertise in data management.
We are very proud of the global team of experts we have at LexisNexis Risk Solutions, available to help deal with the issues of data aggregation and data protection at scale. They can speak with authority on connected cars, IoT, telematics, traditional motor insurance and mobility.
Such a combination of auto industry and insurance industry knowledge is probably not matched anywhere else in the world. The people in our Connected Car Team have a deep understanding of what you may be going through when it comes to choosing a connectivity solution. They can share knowledge on some things you probably haven’t realized you should do to build a sustainable future.
