This IDC study provides manufacturers with the top 10 predictions for their global supply chains. Each prediction is shaped by a common set of key drivers that provide a planning tool for technology leaders and their supply chain counterparts to use in their IT strategic planning efforts.
"The coming years will greatly alter the technology landscape for supply chain organizations. While the predictions offered here largely focus on the near term to midterm (2016–2020), the impact of many of these predictions will be felt for years to come. It is worthwhile to note that predictions are not finite but rather occur on a continuum of change within the wider ecosystem of the manufacturing industry and global economy," says Simon Ellis, VP, Global Supply Chain Strategies for IDC Manufacturing Insights.
