Perspective: Digital Transformation in Wholesale Distribution — 2016 Supply Chain Insights

This IDC Manufacturing Insights Perspective looks at IDC Manufacturing Insights' recent 2016 Supply Chain Survey results as they pertain to the wholesale distribution industry and is a companion piece to both the overall IDC Manufacturing Insights manufacturing supply chain survey report and the additional subsegment reports within manufacturing that we define as asset-, brand-, engineering-, and technology-oriented value chains. As we note in the other reports, the focus of this year's Supply Chain Survey was to begin to get a practical understanding of where companies are headed in terms of the adoption of digital technologies and the areas where we would expect to see potential disruptions.
