BlackBerry Wins TU-Automotive’s 2020 Software Supplier of the Year Award

We are thrilled to announce that BlackBerry has been named by TU-Automotive as this year’s ‘Software Supplier of the Year’.

The electronic architecture of the vehicle is evolving from being hardware-driven to software-defined, and this recognition by TU-Automotive further validates our leadership position within the industry as the premier foundational software provider for the current and the next generation of connected, automated and autonomous vehicles.

The TU-Automotive Awards are amongst the most prestigious and anticipated awards in the connected car industry and the number of competitors entering submissions has never been higher. The 2020 TU-Automotive Award winners were honored as part of a special virtual ceremony during the Informa Tech Automotive Group’s Festival of Automotive held August 20. Informa Tech Automotive Group analysts and editors turned all of the entries received into a list of finalists and the category winners were ultimately picked by an independent panel of judges.
