Business Strategy: Technology-Oriented Value Chain 2016–2017 Investment Guide

By: Kimberly Knickle, Heather Ashton, Fred Amoyaw, Arpana Bharti


This IDC Manufacturing Insights report presents IT budget benchmark data and priorities for the technology-oriented value chain (TOVC) — those manufacturers that must deal with the iterating cycles of key underlying technology (e.g., processors) and can have high levels of variation in supply, manufacturing, and demand, such as high-tech brand owners (original equipment manufacturers), semiconductors, and components.

According to Kimberly Knickle, research vice president, IT Priorities and Strategies, IDC Manufacturing Insights, "Manufacturers in the technology-oriented value chain must continue optimizing their IT resources and investing in IT to achieve digital transformation. This will allow technology-oriented manufacturers to make forward progress on top management priorities such as mitigating supply chain risk, new product development and introduction, and governance, risk, and compliance."
