Founded in 1903, Ford Motor Company manufactures and distributes Ford and Lincoln automobiles around the world. Headquartered in Dearborn, Michigan, Ford has 65 plants worldwide and approximately 172,000 employees. The organization also provides financial services through Ford Motor Credit Company.
Automobile manufacturing is no longer just about the parts in the assembly line. Ford needed to find a way to integrate innovative design and engineering features into its vehicles.
The company uses IBM WebSphere technology to create a service delivery network to connect drivers with their favorite third-party apps and services.
Ford has created a more connected vehicle that allows it to introduce a lot more services and create a much more connected experience for its consumers moving forward.
