Automotive software “talent shortage”, ITO services resolve enterprise employment difficulties
As automobile companies face high demand for software expertise, a limited pool of professionals hinders development. This obstacle prompts Information Technology Outsourcing (ITO) services to emerge as a crucial ally, bridging the gap between demand and supply.
In 2023, over 17% of new energy vehicle talents were from the internet industry. Looking to 2025, a substantial shortfall of 37,000 professionals is anticipated in composite smart car manufacturing. These professionals, understanding hardware and software intricacies, emphasize ITO services’ critical role in addressing the talent gap.
The new ecology of the automotive industry promotes accelerated transformation of enterprises
Ten years ago, over 80% of a vehicle’s cost was hardware, with about 10 million lines of software code. Nowadays, an ordinary new energy vehicle boasts around 100 million lines of code, while future self-driving cars are expected to reach 300 to 500 million lines.
This shift in demand has led many car companies to establish software teams or separate R&D departments. The industry is experiencing an unprecedented hunger for talents. However, in practice, technology giants excel in recruiting automotive talents compared to traditional automotive companies. Large internet companies effortlessly attract top automotive talents due to their prominent position in the industry.
Quickly deploying talents to create an agile organization using ITO services.
Cross-border car manufacturing by major internet companies intensifies domestic automobile industry competition. The importance of key talents in automobile companies becomes self-evident. It’s imperative for these companies to actively promote organizational transformation and create new agile structures.
“This year, many car companies chose us to set up their entire software development department,” Cormise’s ITO business head mentioned. The client, building its first pure electric model, aims for a strong reputation in battery, motor, and electric control system performance. Core R&D personnel recruitment and onboarding, including 100 positions in various directions like senior directors, experts, and engineers, is expected to complete in about 6 months.
So far, our ITO team has successfully recruited nearly 100 people for this project. Forty percent are technical personnel, and 30% hold senior management positions.
