IDC MaturityScape Benchmark: Cloud in Manufacturing in EMEA, 2017
This IDC study presents the manufacturing benchmarking results of IDC's 2016 CloudView Survey and enables manufacturers to assess their cloud maturity level against industry benchmarks and move forward based on their organizational goals. This study should be viewed as a supplement to IDC MaturityScape: Cloud 2.0 (IDC #259534, October 2015), which describes IDC's cloud maturity framework and identifies the stages, dimensions, outcomes, and actions required for companies to deliver impact and business outcomes. Together, they provide a comprehensive overview of IDC's cloud maturity model and help guide manufacturers worldwide to evolve to a stage where their cloud implementations offer competitive differentiation and enable them to deploy new, innovative processes, products, and services quickly."Cloud adoption is accelerating quickly in the manufacturing industry," said Kimberly Knickle, Research Vice President, IDC IT Priorities & Strategies. "For line-of-business executives, cloud offers a quick and economical way to support business requirements quickly, which is critical given the accelerating pace most manufacturers are facing. For CIOs and IT organizations, cloud represents a new model of developing and deploying IT resources with implications for Vision, People, Process, and Technology."
