This IDC Perspective provides our view on how manufacturing organizations can benefit from business collaboration ecosystems to make their operations and supply chains resilient, flexible, and prepared for future disruptions.
"Manufacturers that were able to establish and mobilize their collaboration networks during the COVID-19 pandemic were generally able to avoid stopping production. On the contrary, they could smoothly tweak their production and supply lines to react to new circumstances. These companies were the real winners and should provide inspiration for other manufacturing organizations." — Head of IDC Manufacturing Insights Jan Burian, IDC EMEA
