HFS Highlight: DXC brings automotive innovation to its evolving brand image by acquiring CMORE Automotive

Jun 12, 2020 Tanmoy Mondal Josh Matthews

In 2019, two years after DXC Technology was formed by the merger of CSC and the Enterprise Services business of Hewlett Packard Enterprise, it went for the big-ticket acquisition of Luxoft - boosting its end-to-end digital transformation and engineering capabilities plus boosting its industry competencies – one of which being automotive. DXC has always maintained good performance in our research – especially in Industry 4.0 and the manufacturing space when it comes to execution (depth and breadth, industry-specific solutions, relationship management, and so on…) but was not widely seen as an innovative player in automotive research and development. DXC’s recent acquisition of CMORE Automotive, a German services provider dedicated to the development and validation of AI-driven mobility systems will help boost its autonomous drive end-to-end portfolio. CMORE will strengthen DXC’s automotive European base (currently 45% of its Industry 4.0 clients live there) and will also provide the means of taking this innovation to automotive clients from other geographies. DXC must continue to expand its narrative, showcasing the integrated capabilities of Luxoft and CMORE, alongside other acquisitions, to promote a vision that the market can grab on to. Meanwhile, automotive executives should continue to seriously consider DXC for their end-to-end innovation needs as DXC invests, builds, and melds its vision and capabilities with historically strong delivery.
