NASSCOM Engineering R&D Webinar- Automotive Benchmarking: Battery trends in EV || Q&A Session

|

NASSCOM Engineering R&D had organized a webinar on “Automotive Benchmarking: Battery trends in EV” in March 2020. The global Automotive Battery market size was valued at USD 48.71 billion in 2016 and is projected to grow with CAGR of 8.5% by 2023. The market is expected to witness significant growth over the coming years owing to the increasing demand of automobiles and strict emission standards reinforced by the emerging economies. Furthermore, growing consumer preference for pollution-free electric and hybrid vehicles is one of the key trends anticipated to fuel the demand for automotive batteries over the forecast period. In such a scenario, benchmarking remains an important tool in the automotive segment while studying the trends and best practices to achieve powerful solutions. Th...

Action plan to make Karnataka the preferred ER&D destination

|

In 2019, the global Engineering, Research & Design (ER&D) spend stood at USD 1.45 Trillion. Of this, activities worth about USD 90bn is outsourced. India, with its ER&D sector revenue of about USD 30 billion in FY19 has a 33% share of this outsourcing market. Assisted by the factors such as: a. Growing acceptance of offshoring as a norm in ER&D, b. Significant investments from global capability centers and service providers in skills, scale and technology and c. Impetus from government and other (traditionally) non-engineering-centric verticals, the ER&D outsourcing market is expected to grow at CAGR of 10% to reach USD160 billion by 2025. India’s ER&D revenue is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12% to reach ~USD 60 billion by 2025. With the right policy measures aimed...

Digital Engineering – An Opportunity Unparalleled

|

 The digital engineering market landscape, as brought out in the report, reflects the continued progress and interest the sector has drawn globally. Digital engineering has become the prime priority for enterprises across industries, with a significant portion of global ER&D spending going into creation of smart, connected, and intelligent products. In parallel, leverage of modern technology in the core engineering processes has also been increasing. With India’s aspirational pursuit of ~US$100 billion share in the ER&D sourcing market by 2025, digital engineering spend would be a key component fuelling the next wave of ER&D growth for businesses. This would also impact traditional engineering activities that will find decreasing relevance with enterprises. Looking ahead, it wi...

Evolution Of Data Centers

|

To understand Datacenter let us recall a Computer first. A Computer consists of 3 major components namely CPU (computation), Memory (RAM) and Disk (Storage). Similarly, a Datacenter used to have 3 discrete and interconnected components as Servers (for Compute), Storage Array (for Storage) and Network Switches (for connectivity). These components evolved in time and thus contributed to the Evolution of Datacenters. Datacenter Components: Server: The most important part of a server/computer is its Processor. The evolution of CPU/Processors happened over its number of COREs (Logical Processor) to represent a physical processor. From single-core, dual-core to multi-core is the journey of Processors. Storage: Storage got evolved from 1.4 MB Floppy (as I know), 700 MB CD to 2 TB USB, 30 TB SSDs....

Demystifying the Product Engineering Ecosystem

|

This article is an attempt at demystifying Product, Service, Platform, Aggregator, and Ecosystem in the context of the digitized world. The learnings are the outcome of a panel discussion at the NASSCOM Engineering and Design Summit. A product is a tangible or intangible (software) entity built and offered for sale to the customer. It satisfies a specific need or purpose, evaluated for quality, has a life cycle, can become obsolete or recycled. A service is an intangible activity, is person-derived, has no ownership, and no definite way to assess or evaluate until rendered. Aggregator Aggregators are intermediaries who set and control the rules. Google and Facebook’s near monopolization for search and content over the internet makes them gatekeepers of valuable information. They own ...

Dimensions of Innovation

|

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood In the age of the digital consumer, almost all industries face the pressure of having to innovate constantly. To do something radically different. One always has to stay a step ahead of consumers, anticipate their needs and have the foresight to develop the next big thing. That’s tough. And while new age technology has made it easier to connect with these consumers, enterprises cannot rely only on that tech for business success. It’s always the thought that counts more; tech can only act as an enabler to propel that idea further. Most enterprises, thus, need to focus on organisational innovation to succeed. Everyone wants to disrupt and think ‘out of the box.’ But what about looking a l...

Collaborating for Success of Engineering & Design in India

|

The success of LCA Tejas, one of the finest fighter aircraft, attributed to its Architect, Designer & Project Director Dr. Kota Harinarayana. He was a keynote speaker at the NASSCOM Design and Engineering Summit. Following are the highlights: India’s first fighter jet was HL-24 Marut. After more than two decades of neglect & disregard of the Indian Aerospace Industry, the LCA program started with an initial outlay of Rs.500 crore in the early 1990s. We have the World’s third-largest domestic traffic and will be the third-largest – USA and China being the top two – in combined domestic-international travel. We are the fourth largest Airforce in the world, but until recently have been importing turbo-pass aircraft (only one among the BRIC nations). Years of sanctions by t...

The Future of Engineering R&D

|

Engineering research and development (ER&D) has always been a critical investment for organizations, because regardless of the products or services that they offer, it fundamentally augments their ability to innovate in developing and improving their offerings that can strengthen the organization’s position in the marketplace. This is critical for the survival and profitability of enterprises. Traditionally, ER&D being a core area with IP implications, most organizations chose to keep it as an in-house activity in order to build and grow their own engineering capabilities. However, due to several shifts in the market and influenced by the success of IT outsourcing which has been around for several decades, organizations are now showing a preference to outsource their ER&D. A ve...

Reimagining Manufacturing through Smart Ecosystems

|

Industry 4.0 is set to redefine manufacturing over the next decade. Today, the industry is at a crossroads with manufacturing companies adopting new technologies and streamlining their processes to welcome this inevitable, digitally connected future. Considering the need for integrity and reliability in aerospace manufacturing, the industry has always been an early adopter of advanced technologies. Aerospace players must align their business goals to make digitization a top priority. Building a ‘smart ecosystem’ Aerospace customers have dynamic requirements with drastically reduced timelines. Digitization has enabled companies to provide end-to-end integrated solutions from design to manufacturing by dramatically increasing the pace of operations and accelerating both process and product-b...

Transitioning into an Era of Smart Vehicles

|

The automotive industry is witnessing a shift from product centricity to experience centricity, thanks to an increasing emphasis towards telematics. Essentially, telematics refers to the monitoring of a vehicle and its performance on a continuous and remote basis. This is making vehicles more intelligent, engaging and connected, thereby allowing them to integrate into our daily lives – much like the smartphone. The automotive telematics market is pacing rapidly and is expected to cross USD 98 billion by 2026. Three of the largest segments in this market are: Consumer Telematics, Vehicle Diagnostics & Insurance Telematics. The New Gen Automotive Experience The demand for consumer telematics is primarily driven by the need to transform the user experience through advancements in driver a...
