IDC FutureScape: Worldwide Manufacturing 2023 Predictions
This IDC study provides manufacturers with the top 10 predictions and underlying drivers that we expect to impact manufacturers' IT investments in 2023 and beyond. Technology leaders and their counterparts in the line-of-business (LOB) operations can use this document to guide their IT strategic planning efforts.
"The manufacturing industry has maintained its rapid pace of change and disruption, making the ability to adapt a premium. Manufacturers have encountered many challenges in their efforts to become more resilient while maintaining efficiency, but one of the most cited issues are outdated/legacy systems. While the predictions highlighted touch upon many areas of the business, the main theme that can be tied back to is having the proper digital infrastructure in place to serve as the foundation for transformation," according to Reid Paquin, research director of IDC Manufacturing Insights' IT Priorities and Strategies program.
