BMW 1st Ethernet & IP @ Automotive Techday - Momentum Achieved

by Ian Riches | Nov 16, 2011

I've just go back from a very enjoyable couple of days in Munich, where I was invited to present at the 1st Ethernet & IP @ Automotive Techday, which was put together expertly by Kirsten Matheus and her team at BMW. 

The event gathered more than 350 people from across the industry.  I estimate that the attendance broke down very approximately as follows:

It was also a very international event.  Yes, there were a lot of German accents - but there were also plenty from other parts of Europe, the US, Japan and Korea.  

I'll be publishing a report on High-Speed Bus Networks to Strategy Analytics clients by the end of November.  However, in the meantime, here's the answer to the question that Kirsten ran out of time before she could ask me in the Q&A session at the end of my presentation yesterday:

Q: "In the light of what you've seen and learnt in the last couple of days, are you minded to put your forecast up or down?"

A: "Up."
