IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Manufacturing Supply Chain Planning Strategy Consulting 2017 Vendor Assessment

By: Simon EllisProgram Vice President, John SantagateResearch Director, Service Robots

Abstract

This IDC Manufacturing Insights report uses the IDC MarketScape model to provide an assessment of a number of providers participating in the worldwide supply chain planning strategic consulting 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.

"There is more change happening in the manufacturing supply chain today than at any prior time in history. Manufacturers are exploring new business models and opportunities and are faced with a bewildering array of new technologies whose exact application is as yet fully unclear. The strategic challenges for the supply chain, then, are broad and deep and ideally require an external business partner to help to think through the right opportunities and approaches. The purpose of this report is to highlight a number of companies that bring outstanding capabilities to bear on this problem," says Simon Ellis, global VP for IDC Manufacturing Insights' Supply Chain Strategies Practice.
