Volkswagen opens new IT center in Lisbon
The Volkswagen Group continues to expand its software competence and it is forging ahead with its digital transformation.
The new Software Development Center was inaugurated yesterday in Lisbon, where 300 IT specialists develop software mainly for digital ecosystems and the Group's internal business processes.
This is the third structure like this. Volkswagen already operates two software development centers with several hundred Information Technology experts in Wolfsburg and Berlin.
At the SDCs, highly specialized project teams focus mainly on added-value services for the digital ecosystems of the brands, such as the “We” services of Volkswagen Passenger Cars and on safety-relevant structures, including those needed to authenticate customer profiles for these services or for database encryption.
From 2019 software developers will have to be trained by Volkswagen at the "Faculty 73" in Wolfsburg.
