Business Strategy: Digitization Trends in Brand-Oriented Value Chains in Asia/Pacific (Excluding Japan)
By: Yves Wang
Manufacturing as a sector in the APEJ region is undergoing transformation not just at the individual organizational level but at the national level, thanks to government initiatives launched in countries such as China and India. To leverage these programs, take manufacturing to world-class levels, and for the scale of operations these programs expect, the role of ICT becomes important. CIOs and other business leaders should leverage the upcoming technologies, their new engagement models, and prioritize the limited funds they have to move up the technology curve and not be stuck managing existing systems in which they have already made investments. "Companies that get the priority correct and divert funds to appropriate new technologies such as the 3rd Platform and innovation accelerators will have a competitive advantage over their peers who continue to sustain and run their businesses with only traditional IT systems," says Ramachandran S, principal research manager, IDC Manufacturing Insights.
