Show Notes

Partnering with 3rd parties can be a vital resource for companies who have a specific issue to overcome, a problem to solve that would not be as efficient to solve internally. But when is the right time to reach out to other companies or entities? At what stage in a project does it become vital to partner with others? In this episode of Automotive, we’ll be answering these questions by focusing on a true success story in this realm - Capgemini’s collaboration with automotive technology company Faurecia for a Singapore based emissions study. We’ll find out about the project's successes, its challenges, the innovative technical solutions used and what this can tell us about partnering with 3rd parties more generally.
