This IDC study is designed for business and technology executives who are responsible for managing supply chain execution process and technology. This IDC study presents the results of IDC's 2017 Integrated Supply Chain Execution MaturityScape Benchmark Survey and should be viewed as a supplement to IDC MaturityScape: Integrated Supply Chain Execution 1.0 (IDC # US40152216 , June 2016). Together, the two studies provide a comprehensive overview of IDC's Integrated Supply Chain Execution Maturity Model.
This study enables organizations to answer the following questions:
- What are the key components to an integrated approach to supply chain execution?
- Where do we stand on the maturity curve for integrated supply chain execution competencies, and where do our peers stand?
- What is the path to improve and achieve the level of maturity that the business needs to deliver an integrated approach to supply chain execution?
"An integrated approach to supply chain execution provides a mechanism to drive competitive advantage by enabling speed, efficiency, and reliability into the supply chain," says John Santagate, research manager, Manufacturing Supply Chain Execution. "Organizations that take a holistic approach to designing supply chain processes and equipping the processes with the right technological toolset are in a better positon to drive competitive differentiation through the supply chain."
