BlackBerry has demonstrated that BlackBerry IVY can help automakers reduce their cloud data storage costs by up to 97 percent.

Together, BlackBerry and Upstream expect to deliver significant data connectivity savings of up to 80 percent while expanding cybersecurity protection coverage by pre-processing vehicle data at the edge across multiple systems.
