Ian Robertson, miembro del consejo de dirección de BMW AG y responsable de ventas y marketing de BMW, comentó: "Después de un tercer trimestre histórico, BMW Group anunció las ventas más altas de todos los tiempos para el mes de octubre. El mes pasado obtuvimos beneficios sólidos en muchos de nuestros mercados, especialmente en Asia y América y nuestro objetivo consiste en mantener esta línea de expansión durante los próximos meses.

There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic • Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it’s a mix of architectural style...
