Harman cloud platform wins Best Telematics Product Award

Harman International, a wholly owned subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., has won the 2017 TU-Automotive Award in the category of Best Telematics Product or Service for its Harman Ignite platform, the company said.

The TU-Automotive Awards recognize leaders pushing the automotive industry forward through innovation, industry engagement and quality products and services.

The Harman Ignite platform continues to gain momentum within the industry — as it is being leveraged by 23 global OEMs and 15 Tier-1 and aftermarket partners, delivering services to more than 17 million vehicles in 70 countries.

Developed by Harman´s Connected Services division, the Harman Ignite Platform is an end-to-end solution that enables connectivity, device management, application enablement, analytics and managed services capabilities. It allows automakers, dealers and service providers to introduce and easily deploy new cloud applications and services.

Harman Ignite is both scalable and modular, enabling OEMs to initially purchase a base set of functionality — and through their partnership with Harman — build on that core base with additional services and capacity as needed. This platform targets the existing and future demands for scalability, security and flexibility in the provisioning of connected car services and applications.

Harman designs and engineers connected products and solutions for automakers, consumers, and enterprises worldwide, including connected car systems, audio and visual products, enterprise automation solutions; and services supporting the Internet of Things.
