This IDC MaturityScape is a tool that helps manufacturers and ecosystem participants to:

  • Assess their current maturity level of business ecosystem strategies
  • Foster a dialog among business and technology executives on goals and actions related to business ecosystem strategies
  • Create a baseline for short- and long-term planning across all dimensions
  • Understand the business potential and other benefits of business ecosystems

"In manufacturing, the level of adoption of B2B2C in the way new products and services are created and sold in collaborative ways by ecosystem stakeholders significantly varies. There are manufacturers that have already uncovered the potential of collaborative business ecosystems and thus gained interesting business results as they got to new markets and customers faster and cheaper while being highly flexible in product development and marketing. They are unlike many other manufacturers losing business opportunities because they still hesitate, don't know how to begin, or don't know how to expand their current business models through the collaborative ecosystems," said Jan Burian, research director, IDC Manufacturing Insights.
