„3 Myths of an Engineering Product Development Service“

Some people think that working with an engineering product development team is the same as working with any other group. It is often compared to different departments in terms of how they do things, which is wrong because engineering and product development is a different world altogether.

In this video, we will debunk the myths and open your mind about the true nature of getting an engineering product development service.

Myth 1 - More people means more speed
Myth 2 - Having experts is having the best team
Myth 3 - Process is slowing them down

By the end of this discussion, you will have an idea of how Matrickz works as a team.

„The T-Shaped Engineer“

Today we're gonna talk about T-Shaped Engineer. What is T-Shaped Engineer?

T-Shaped Engineer is a person who has a broad high-level overview but at the same time they are able to go deep into the technology, at the code level, and they are able to explain things.

How can we define a T-Shaped engineer?
We can see a T-Shaped engineer if someone is present at various levels of the development cycle. They are good communicators at the very technical level, at the architecture level, at the requirement level, and they can also see the big picture.

Engineering is about communication and as we know, communication is an underrated topic in engineering. We believe that engineering is not only about inventing and solving problems even though if the person is really expert but if he/she can't communicate properly, then it would be trouble for the team sooner or later. That's why it's very important for a company to have a T-Shaped person.

What do you think?

„Automotive Cybersecurity“

It's a very exciting episode for you guys! Today we're going to talk about cybersecurity.

With the new era of digitization in the automotive domain, disruption is quite inevitable. Connectivity will make cars more vulnerable to attacks and may take human safety at risk as well. The threat will not be from the driver who is falling asleep, the threat will be from a cyber attacker.

Imagine, instead of COVID-19, the virus was a computer virus and it had crippled the entire network of the globe, it will be doomsday! Customers expect security as part of the vehicle, they don't expect to pay extra for cybersecurity and as we know, automotive in a net is 25 years behind the IT infrastructure.

With that, I have a great opportunity to discuss with Gilad Bandel, the VP of Product, and Marketing at Arilou Automotive Cybersecurity about how automation is gonna influence cybersecurity, how much is the potential of a cyber weapon, how easy it is to hack a vehicle, why the automotive industry is far behind compared to the IT industry, and many more!
