Covisint to Discuss the Future of the Connected Car at Telematics Detroit

June 3, 2014

NOVI, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The connected car is rapidly becoming more advanced, complex and intertwined with our daily lives, and more and more automotive and technology brand names are joining the conversation. As a result, Covisint Corporation (Nasdaq: COVS), provider of a leading cloud engagement platform, will have a significant presence at Telematics Detroit 2014, the world’s largest forum dedicated to the future of connected automotive mobility.

At the conference, taking place June 4-5 at the Suburban Collection Showcase in Novi, Michigan, Covisint will exhibit at booth 59; deliver a keynote; participate in two panel discussions; and showcase “Bumblebee,” the Chevy Camaro from the movie “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” filmed in Detroit and premiering on June 27, 2014.

As connected cars gain an ever-increasing range of functionalities, security risks and the potential for data abuse also rises. Complexity exacerbates the problem as connected cars, which are a significant part of the Internet of Things phenomenon, continue to be connected to more and more people, devices, organization and road infrastructure technologies. To address this growing complexity, auto manufacturers seek underlying technology that is able to both securely connect and manage proliferation of identities, which is Covisint’s precise area of expertise.
