This IDC Manufacturing Insights report presents IT budget benchmark data for segments that make up our engineering-oriented value chain (EOVC) category, which includes aerospace, automotive, heavy equipment, and other discrete manufacturing.
Bob Parker, group vice president of Research for IDC Manufacturing Insights said, "IT personnel responsible for the budget process should find the comparative data useful, but those involved in IT strategy should also find it valuable in creating longer-term plans." The benchmarking data is culled from our ongoing research including our spending guide forecast, vertical view surveys, and wallet database, so the data is current and specific to global EOVC firms.
