versiondog - Data management for the automotive industry

The automotive industry is currently faced with a raft of challenges. The advent of the Industrial IoT, the trend toward e-mobility and new markets in China and South-East Asia are all contributing to the ever-present pressure to cut costs while increasing quality.
