The Connected Car: An IoT Use Case

Leverage APIs and IoT to deliver added value to automotive customers and partners

Among all the hype about the Internet of Things (IoT), it can sometimes be hard to see the business value of connected devices. The example of “connected car” technology provides several existing use cases that demonstrate the real-world value IoT can deliver. In this eBook, we review five key use cases and explain how automotive enterprises can realize the opportunities these use cases present:

Web and mobile marketing
Remote auto companion apps
In-car infotainment apps
Automotive commerce
Fleet management and maintenance
APIs make all these use cases possible by exposing application functionality and data in developer-friendly formats, accelerating the development of apps that connect vehicles, mobile devices and online identities. Exposing enterprise systems in this way creates a range of new security and management challenges, which can be addressed by deploying a full-featured API Management solution.
