The automotive industry is undergoing a significant transformation putting software to the core of vehicle feature development. The integration of cloud services as external computing resources and remote access to the vehicle has emerged as a transformative force. This master's thesis delves into the pivotal role of cloud services as the technological backbone for a wide range of automotive applications closely tied to vehicle operation. The importance of this topic is underscored by its potential to revolutionize the way vehicles operate, connect, upgrade, vehicle services, but also generate and monetize data.

This research will comprehensively investigate the technological infrastructure required to make use of cloud services in the automotive context, including cloud architecture, security, and data management. It will also delve into practical use cases, showcasing the transformative potential of the cloud in enabling features such as real-time connectivity, remote vehicle upgrades, data generation for predictive maintenance, and monetization strategies.

Potential research question: "How can cloud services serve as the technological foundation for a range of automotive applications related to vehicle operation, and what are the implications and opportunities for the automotive industry in terms of innovation, efficiency, and revenue generation?"
