Volkswagen connects to Microsoft for strategic cloud services

September 30, 2018 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
Volkswagen plans to build a cloud for its "Connected Cars" - and this will run with software from Microsoft in the future. The carmaker from Lower Saxony has entered into a strategic partnership with Microsoft. The two companies intend to jointly develop a backend data platform called "Volkswagen Automotive Cloud", which, as a large industrial cloud, will encompass all future digital services and mobility offerings from that car manufacturer.

With the agreement with Microsoft, Volkswagen intends to drive its digital transformation forward. With Microsoft as its strategic partner, the automaker is taking an important step towards becoming a mobility provider with a fully networked vehicle fleet and the "Volkswagen We" digital ecosystem.

From 2020 onwards, more than 5 million new connected vehicles of the Volkswagen brand are to come onto the market every year and thus become part of the "Internet of Things" (IoT). The hub for the data from the cars and for the cars is Volkswagen's Automotive Cloud - which is to function with the help and technology of Microsoft.
