TECH BUYER Dec 2017 - IDC Perspective - Doc # US43134017
Cloud Adoption in the Manufacturing Industry
This IDC Perspective reports the worldwide manufacturing results from IDC's 2017 CloudView Survey of line-of-business cloud buyers and IT operations staff on cloud adoption rates, trends, and attitudes.
"Manufacturers believe cloud will have more impact on their businesses over the next five years than almost every other technology in the 3rd Platform. Cloud computing is an increasingly business relevant technology for digital transformation, and manufacturers are allocating more of their IT spend to cloud. Yet IDC's 2017 CloudView Survey also shows that most still don't have a well-defined cloud strategy," said Kimberly Knickle, vice president, IT Priorities and Strategies, IDC Manufacturing Insights.
