SEATTLE, Jan. 25, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Airbiquity, a global leader in connected vehicle services, has received a Business Intelligence Group BIG Award for Business in the 2017 New Product of the Year category for its OTAmaticTM over-the-air (OTA) software and data management solution. Business Intelligence Group's Big Award for Business program was launched in 2012 to reward companies, products, and people that are leading their respective industries with innovative solutions and business performance.
Airbiquity OTAmatic allows automakers and suppliers to efficiently plan and execute software update and data campaigns – at scale – with highly refined vehicle and device targeting, discrete policy and privacy controls, fully customizable consumer communications, and solution deployment flexibility. In addition to the features announced in early 2017, OTAmatic now includes:
- Edge Data Analytics Framework: OTAmatic supports upgradable analytic modules from data analytics providers, and the anonymization and normalization of vehicle data for automaker and third-party value generation.
- Consumer Purchasing: OTAmatic on-demand software updates enable consumer purchase of new features and services post-vehicle sale, and customizable consumer interactions via infotainment system and smartphone applications.
- "Defense In-Depth" Security: OTAmatic's end-to-end security approach spans confidentiality, integrity, authenticity, and availability leveraging standards-based certification, authentication, encryption, and the compromise-resilient Uptane software update security system for automotive (initiated and funded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security).
Through the use of OTAmatic, automakers and tier 1 suppliers can secure significant benefits such as reduced software related recall expenses, faster recall compliance times, improved cybersecurity response, and the ability to deliver vehicle performance and feature enhancements post-consumer purchase.
"As the marketplace for connected vehicles continues to grow at a rapid pace, the automotive industry's demand for a solution that enables vehicles to efficiently and securely receive OTA software updates and transmit diagnostic and operational data has heightened," said Kamyar Moinzadeh, President and CEO of Airbiquity.
