This IDC study presents the top 10 predictions and key drivers for the agriculture industry for the next five years. IDC Energy Insights has identified the main drivers that set the context and conditions for designing and executing agriculture companies' IT and operational technology (OT) strategies, tactics, and operations.
"Traditionally, agriculture hasn't experienced a high level of digital transformation. Many farmers are reluctant to adopt new technologies, while large agriculture firms have been executing on their digital transformation strategies. COVID-19 has significantly impacted agriculture organizations' digital transformation plans, and over 50% of farms around the world are cutting their IT spending. However, the organizations that are further along the DX journey will display more resilience and agility coming out of the pandemic and will widen the gap with their peers that are lagging behind. Over time, we expect to see more and more agriculture organizations join this exciting DX journey," says John Zhang, research analyst, Worldwide Agriculture, IDC Energy Insights.
