The automotive industry is undergoing a comprehensive transformation. Electric vehicles are replacing combustion engines, the circular economy enables resource recycling, and digitalisation opens up new opportunities. However, this transformation process is significantly influenced by geopolitical conflicts, events of global scope and climate change. In the face of these challenges, companies cannot succeed alone and are therefore dependent on cooperation.

This is where Catena-X comes in – the first collaborative, open data ecosystem for the automotive industry of the future that connects global players in end-to-end value chains.

The idea is to connect car manufacturers, suppliers and service providers along the entire supply chain. For this purpose, Catena-X offers a simple, secure and independent platform for standardised, global data exchange based on European values. The goal is to ensure data sovereignty for all participants.

This represents a sustainable solution for the digitalisation of supply chains, especially for small and medium-sized enterprises, and promotes cooperation and collaboration between market participants and competitors. At the same time, Catena-X and the accompanying change pose major challenges for companies. The demands on their own IT systems and data quality are increasing.
