Compuware Corporation has announced that its Covisint subsidiary is presenting a webinar for automotive OEMs and their suppliers to learn how to enable global automotive ecosystems in a software as a service (SaaS) model.
When: Wednesday, February 17, 2010, 10:15 a.m. EST
Presenters: Don Guibord, Lear Global EDI Manager; Joe Grabowski, Covisint Director, Automotive; Henriette Douglas, Covisint Global Automotive and Manufacturing Product Marketing
Who should attend: managers, directors and executives from automotive OEMs and their suppliers
What: Thought-provoking presentations and a live question-and-answer session from automotive experts at Lear Corporation and Covisint, discussing how Lear designed a strategy to increase efficiency while reducing cost. This complimentary webinar will explore how OEMs and suppliers can:
reduce risk through a cloud-based service provider;
manage the global impact of doing business;
lower the total cost of ownership (TCO) for EDI;
support business activity monitoring; and
enable a flexible platform that supports future growth.
Why: Developing ecosystems that support interoperability is one of the greatest challenges faced by automotive companies today. It can be difficult, time consuming and expensive to ensure that secure, reliable information is shared across an increasingly complex ecosystem of technology systems and platforms. Covisint’s comprehensive Data Exchange and Portal Services ensure interoperability by managing the complexities of message formats, protocols, APIs and network interconnectivity through secure, reliable communications in a SaaS model. This webinar will present new ways to enable ecosystems that drive down costs and run operations more smoothly, securely and effectively.
Covisint’s on-demand collaboration platform and cloud computing approach helps virtual communities securely access, use and share time-sensitive information. Covisint solves business problems by streamlining and automating processes globally–connecting state and nationally based communities, organizations and systems in the healthcare, automotive and financial services industries, as well as the public sector.
