This IDC Perspective reports the worldwide manufacturing results from IDC's 2018 CloudView Survey of line-of-business cloud buyers and IT operations staff on cloud adoption rates, trends, and attitudes."It's clear from conversations among executives that cloud will play an important role in the manufacturing IT landscape. In fact, manufacturers believe cloud will have more impact on their businesses over the next five years than almost every other technology in the 3rd Platform. Not only are there the costs savings and improved business agility, but cloud will be a key technology to enable digital transformation.
