This IDC study continues a series of research documents on the digitally enabled "thinking" supply chain. Our initial view on the topic was published previously in The Digitally Enabled Supply Chain with Manufacturing Use Cases (IDC #US42434217, April 2017), followed by this document, an IDC TechScape, and then ultimately a series of IDC MarketScape documents as capabilities mature. The purpose of this document is to provide the beginning of a road map for manufacturers aspiring to create a digitally enabled supply chain."The supply chain plays an increasingly critical role in the evolution of manufacturing, with digital competencies poised to transform the way in which supply chains operate. In this IDC PlanScape, we look at the concept of digitally enabling the supply chain as an evolutionary way of enabling manufacturers to meet the speed and agility required of them in the marketplace while providing the lens through which to see the opportunities for business model change," says Simon Ellis, program VP, Global Supply Chain Strategies.
