DEARBORN, Mich., Feb. 1, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Covisint, a Compuware (Nasdaq:CPWR) company, announced that its Chief Security Officer, Dave Miller, will speak today on the future of the connected vehicle at the Automotive Megatrends USA 2012 conference. Miller will address the growing ubiquity of technology in vehicle systems and the need to integrate the identities through a platform flexible enough to meet growing-yet-unknown industry needs.

Cars are already becoming another network endpoint, but will soon do much more, including such things as monitoring a driver's health, providing seamless connectivity to the driver's personal cloud and even sensing other vehicles' presence--preventing accidents and driving themselves in congested cities. The potential scope is so great that automakers need to consider the platforms they are now building to accommodate future needs.

In his discussion at Megatrends, Miller will note that there are 50 billion mobile devices expected by 2020, and many, if not most, will somehow engage with the automobile. Managing all of that "identity complexity" will require a solution that seamlessly integrates with the needs of the digital owner, enabling services and functionality that improves lives. It is only in the cloud, Miller argues, that this can be done, enabling the flexibility of adapting to changing needs, dramatically increased data feeds and unprecedented security and connectivity implications.

"There are profound-yet-unknown changes ahead for the connected car, and getting the infrastructure and security issues right early on will separate the winners from the losers," Miller said. "What's needed is the flexibility of a cloud-based platform that adapts to this dynamic 'mega-shift' about to overtake the auto-tech industry. Covisint is a cloud-based pioneer with proven automotive integration and security expertise, and we are squarely positioned to address future industry needs with our flexible platform."
