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

Abstract

This IDC Manufacturing Insights report uses the IDC MarketScape model to provide an assessment of a number of providers participating in the worldwide manufacturing supply chain execution systems integration and business process outsourcing market. The IDC MarketScape is an evaluation based on a comprehensive framework and a set of parameters that assess 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 market for manufacturing supply chain execution systems is continuing to evolve. Modern technology has made it imperative that manufacturing operations consider innovative technology, processes, and business models when deploying applications to support the business process. In the effort to evolve the manufacturing supply chain IT architecture, manufacturers must consider the role of systems integrators and business process outsourcing. They must look not only at the ability to effectively integrate off-the-shelf applications, but also the capacity for the SIs to support innovative digital initiatives. The purpose of this document is to present several companies that have the ability to follow the historical role of the SI and also those with a keen sense of digital innovation," says John Santagate, research manager for IDC Manufacturing Insights' Supply Chain Execution Practice.
