Infusing CEMA Manufacturers' IT Strategies with Cloud Technologies

Infusing CEMA Manufacturers' IT Strategies with Cloud Technologies

This IDC Manufacturing Insights study assesses practices in current use of cloud technologies by leading CEMA manufacturers. It explains why companies should investigate cloud technologies, what benefits they can obtain, and suggests what approach to take. "In my research, I have observed huge differences in cloud adoption maturity across the CEMA manufacturing sector — manufacturing IT environments are as diversified as the landscape on the journey from Prague to Cape Town. Cloud technologies still represent a major transformative opportunity for the majority of manufacturers in the region, an opportunity that, if capitalized on, will provide IT efficiency and effectiveness, as well as business value. Cloud services providers are as of now unlikely to find much low-hanging fruit in CEMA manufacturing, but they can bet on a steady flow of emerging business opportunities that will evolve toward a volume cloud business in several years' time." — Senior Research Analyst Martin Kuban, IDC CEMA Manufacturing Insights
