The Changing Face of Manufacturing

Presented by

Maggie Slowik, Senior Research Analyst, Lorenzo Veronesi, Research Manager, IDC Manufacturing Insights

About this talk

The manufacturing industry is changing faster than ever, with digital transformation (DX) underway at most manufacturers, and this is set to continue as organizations begin to feel the benefits that come with it. In the past, manufacturers have been focused on productivity improvements (how to achieve more with less), but that is no longer the best measure of success.While efficiency gains are an important objective, forward thinkers are resetting their focus on innovation, the transformation of entire business models, and moving into adjacent markets. This market-disrupting shift is a common theme in IDC’s 2019 manufacturing predictions, which create a framework for IT and line-of-business executives to plan and execute technology-related initiatives in the years ahead.
