Enhancing the Automotive Industry with Managed Cloud Solutions

Big Data

The automotive industry requires large computing capabilities in order to operate necessary business functions, test and develop products, and access business analytics. The increasing demand for processing power, data storage and equipment means that many automotive companies are spending more money to accommodate their storage needs.

IT Costs

Manufacturers rely heavily on IT to ensure that supply chains and distribution channels are running smoothly at all times. The rising pattern of demand from the market means that automotive companies are faced with challenges in the form high costs associated with managing complex IT resources.

Inventory

From manufacturers to dealers, each sector of the automotive industry needs to have constant access to available products and parts to insure they can scale smoothly in response to the changing demand or market conditions. Purchasing the latest software and hardware updates can be costly, making it difficult to keep inventories up-to-date.

Collaboration

The complexity of automotive operations is growing rapidly to meet the needs and desires of the market. This includes the need to support an increasingly dynamic and complex supply chain. The automotive industry requires synchronized collaboration to ensure optimized transport scheduling, inventory planning and replenishment, and more.

Background

The cloud makes managing market activities easier, including product creation, logistics, compliance, tracking and risk management, new product launches, and much more. The cloud can improve visibility into specific supply chain activities and help resolve issues faster. Cloud-based analytics also allow OEMs to quickly evaluate a wide range of key performance indicators.

Having constant access to inventory is crucial for automotive dealers and vendors. The cloud allows you to search large databases quickly to find products in any location worldwide. Data virtualization technology allows companies to move their data online or offline in the cloud, lowering costs significantly and solving data storage roadblocks.

The cloud offers easier provisioning for software development and testing on new products, reducing the time and money spent on acquiring hardware and software licenses and allowing engineers to devote more time to innovation rather than IT activities.

A cloud collaboration platform can connect large players, manufacturers, vendors, and dealers, increasing information sharing between partners in all sectors of the automotive supply-chain. Each organization involved can effectively plan and manage activities in collaboration with their partners.

See What our Customers are Saying

  • With this kind of support how could someone not love RapidScale. The bar has been set pretty high!!!

  • Sent a ticket for a server being unresponsive and received a call within a few minutes.  Great response and resolution.

  • I believe the technician’s name was David. He was very pro-active on a Saturday. Got the issue resolved quickly. High marks.

  • Thanks for the quick response and resolution!  and I appreciate the fact that the tech gave information about what the problem was, how it was fixed, etc.  That is always better than a simple “its now fixed”.

  • The level of service that we have received from RapidScale has been completely awesome.  All of our IT team and the owner has commented on it.  You guys are doing a fantastic job!

  • It’s been great so far having RapidScale host our email. We had it in-house before and that was just may more trouble than it was worth.

  • We’ve been extremely pleased with the service and customer support RapidScale has provided us. We don’t have a large IT staff and so the ability to lean on them has been perfect.

  • We’ve now transferred almost our entire company into RapidScale’s cloud. We started with just our email – we moved from in-house to hosted – then we moved the rest of our servers into the RapidScale cloud and now we’re in the final stages of implementing our virtual desktops! It’s really incredible to have everything running in the cloud and to have it all be so easy!

  • Working with RapidScale has been great so far. Our organization had a lot of our servers in-house and it was such a pain. It’s 1,000 times better now that we moved it all to the cloud.

  • RapidScale quite literally re-invented our IT situation. It was a complete mess before and we are absolutely THRILLED with everything that they’ve helped us to accomplish. Our network runs smoother and our virtual environments are the best addition we’ve made in a very long time.

  • The whole “cloud” thing was incredibly daunting when we first started exploring it for our business. We didn’t really understand the way everything worked and how it was going to help us get past some of the technology speed bumps we had. I worked with the RapidScale sales team and they were really very helpful and made me completely comfortable with the solution. We’ve been running on the CloudOffice interface for about 4 months now and are 100% satisfied and so happy we made the choice to move to RapidScale.

  • RapidScale helped to not only significantly lower our costs, but to help make our work environment more productive as well as more reliable and stable.

  • I LOVE THIS TECHNOLOGY.  I am so excited to be in this new phase within our organization. As a proud partner of RapidScale, this week alone I’ve dealt with 3 major consultations in Colorado with hundreds of employees each! This technology is truly exciting stuff.  They make the process so easy, from training, to quoting, to installation! I LOVE HOW EASY THAT WAS.  Amazing.  You all ROCK!

  • Thanks again and we look forward to staying with Rapidscale for a long time to come.

  • RapidScale provided us with the idea Hybrid Cloud solution for our firm and allowed us to have mobility and reliability that we were previously lacking. We also got the security of full data redundancy between RapidScale’s data centers, which eliminated the concern of a server failing and losing our years of data.

  • We were not only able to quantify the cost savings for the company with RapidScale, but we were also given new capabilities when trying to establish accurate Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) and Recovery Time Objectives (RTO).

  • During National Health IT Week, we recognized you for leveraging technology to support and improve our healthcare systems. By ensuring that our health information technology is integrated, interactive, interoperable, and intelligent, you help improve the quality of healthcare delivery, increased patient safety, and strengthen the interaction between patients and their healthcare providers. Thank you for all you do to enhance our operations and support patient care and safety

  • Overall, RapidScale provided us with an ideal hybrid Cloud solution for our organization and allowed us to have mobility and reliability that we were critically lacking before. We deal with a lot of power outages so it’s remarkable that we have the convenience of full redundancy between RapidScale’s data centers, which eliminated the concern of a server failing during one of our power outages and potentially losing our data.

  • I will say that I highly recommend RapidScale because of the level of service and response I have had with them. I will also say that the level of personal attention/interaction that I have been able to maintain with them has been a critical point in my decision to remain with them even when other companies have approached me with options to change.
