This IDC study uses the IDC MarketScape model to provide an assessment of several providers participating in the worldwide manufacturing execution system (MES) market. The IDC MarketScape is an evaluation based on a comprehensive framework and a set of parameters that assesses providers relative to one another and to those factors expected to be most conducive to success in a given market during both the short term and the long term.
"The vast application array of the MES application, if from one point makes it difficult for manufacturers to use it at its full potential, but from the other side makes it the preferred candidate to become the shop floor mastermind. Going forward, this potential of MES can be even amplified considering how modern MES will benefit from the emergence of the 3rd Platform and innovation accelerators such as Internet of Things integration, intelligent robotics, and cognitive systems," says Lorenzo Veronesi, research manager, IDC Manufacturing Insights.
