Aeris to Present at Baird 2021 Vehicle Technology & Mobility Virtual Conference

March 05, 2021

Vice President and GM, Automotive Raj Kanaya to discuss how Aeris is enabling auto OEMs to thrive in a digital world

SAN JOSE, CA – March 5, 2021 Aeris Communications,  a global leader in Internet of Things (IoT) technology, today announced that the company will participate in the Baird Vehicle Technology & Mobility Conference, 2021, held virtually, Tuesday, March 9 – Wednesday, March 10.  Aeris Vice President and GM, Automotive Raj Kanaya will present on Tuesday, March 9 from 8:10-8:55 a.m. EST in Session II to discuss how Aeris is leveraging its deep, real-world experience deploying connected vehicle programs to help OEMs like Volkswagen dramatically accelerate value capture from the digitization of the vehicle ecosystem.

The vehicle industry is undergoing massive change with autonomous, electrification, and new mobility, all underpinned by connectivity. These changes are rapidly extending to the entire vehicle ecosystem—from dealerships to repair shops and insurance providers. Auto OEMs have a unique opportunity to capture value from every aspect of the transformation, but only if equipped with the right data strategy, as well as the vehicle and cloud infrastructure required to harness it.

With over ten years of experience helping six of the world’s largest auto OEMs connect more than five million vehicles globally, Mr. Kanaya will offer a front-row seat perspective on what is required for auto OEMs to come out ahead in a connected world.
