Supporting innovation in an environment of constant change
Audi AG, part of the Volkswagen (VG) Group, is a manufacturer of high-quality automobiles. The company delivered more than 1.6 million cars to 100 countries worldwide in 2020.
To keep pace with evolving business demand and fulfill its mission of leading through technology, the VW Group tasked Audi’s IT team with creating a secure, stable, central environment for innovative development at scale across the group’s many brands. As part of this project, Audi IT sought to reduce risks and remove dependencies with a flexible, modular architecture that could support iterative work.
“The days of ‘plan, build, run’ are over,” said Sebastian Kister, Product Team LeadKubernetes Competence Center, Audi AG. “You can't expect a system to run as-is for ten years anymore. To survive in an environment of constant change, we needed a multi-tenant system with the ability to make small adjustments and updates whenever necessary.”
