Abstract

This IDC study provides manufacturers with the top 10 predictions and underlying drivers that we expect to impact manufacturers' IT investments in 2018 and beyond. Technology leaders and their counterparts in the line-of-business (LOB) operations can use this document to guide their IT strategic planning efforts.

According to Kimberly Knickle, research vice president, IT Priorities and Strategies, IDC Manufacturing Insights, "Manufacturers of every size and shape are changing rapidly because of new digital technologies, new competitors, new ecosystems, and new ways of doing business. Manufacturers that can speed their adoption of digital capabilities in order to create business value will be the leaders of their industry. Our predictions create a framework for IT and line-of-business executives to plan and execute technology-related initiatives in the year ahead."
