Business Strategy: The Evolution of Manufacturing Supply Chains — Networked, Collaborative, and Transparent

This IDC Manufacturing Insights report looks in detail at the future for the manufacturing supply chain, both in terms of how best to engage with the external marketplace and implications for internal supply chain domains.

"Today's supply chains operate in a fast-paced, dynamic marketplace where change is a familiar partner and expectations from customers and consumers continue to put pressure on fulfillment performance. While there is no shortage of opinion on the way forward for the manufacturing supply chain, it is clear that the supply chain must both adapt to the changes that are happening and anticipate those changes that will happen," says Simon Ellis, practice director, Supply Chain.
