Member Case Study: itemis Builds Its Automotive Industry Business

Tuesday, March 2, 2021 - 11:25 by Michael Plagge

Read our itemis member case study to learn why companies in the automotive industry are increasingly interested in itemis and its active involvement in the Eclipse Foundation.

itemis specializes in model-driven technologies. About half of the company’s software architects and engineers use, or are involved in, projects at the Eclipse Foundation.

Andreas Graf, the business development manager for automotive at itemis, says the Eclipse Foundation has played an important role in the company’s automotive industry success. “We’ve often been chosen for projects in the automotive domain because we are heavily invested in Eclipse Foundation technologies,” he says.

Although the automotive industry has historically preferred to use proprietary software, Graf says that perspective is changing. itemis uses the technologies hosted at the Eclipse Foundation to successfully support two different business models — selling services and selling licenses for its YAKINDU software tools.


For more insight into itemis’ strategy, growth, and success, read the case study.
