Volkswagen and IBM today announced that they intend to develop digital mobility services together based on IBM Mobile Cloud and Watson Technology to create services tailored to the actual and future mobility needs of customers. To bring new services to the market quickly, IBM and Volkswagen work in an interdisciplinary garage team and based on agile principles together with Aperto, a renowned digital agency and part of the global IBM iX agency family.
The team is collocated at the Aperto office in Berlin to jointly explore, create and prototype viable products. All ideas produced by the garage team will be rigorously tested to ensure the products and services resonate with drivers and passengers. A factory that is closely linked to the garage team will assure the successful industrialization and scaling of the prototypes into real products.
