This IDC study provides an assessment of the principal SaaS and cloud-enabled B2B digital commerce platforms for manufacturers and discusses what criteria are most important for companies to consider when selecting a system.
"Manufacturing organizations looking to digitally transform are building B2B digital commerce platforms in the cloud that allow them to provide their business buyers with a better buying experience. However, selecting the right cloud B2B digital commerce platform can be extremely hard," says Jordan Jewell, senior research analyst of IDC's Digital Commerce program. "Technology buyers need to envision how their manufacturing and supply chain operations will change over the next five or more years and build the B2B digital commerce platform backward from there. The right platform should provide you with a competitive advantage when selling to other organizations and also be flexible enough to support commerce business model changes in the years to come."
