Vendor Assessment: Business Analytics Vendors in Manufacturing

This IDC Manufacturing Insights report provides a vertical industry look at the business analytics vendors that are selling into the manufacturing industry, with cross-industry/cross-application tools and, in some cases, manufacturing-specific analytics capabilities.

"The pressures on decision-making speed and the need to make sense of an escalating amount of data from the supply chain, products and services, plant operations, and customer engagement are just a couple of the most critical reasons manufacturers are investing in business analytics. Manufacturers should closely evaluate the IT suppliers that can help them address their requirements for analytics all across the business," explains Kimberly Knickle, practice director, IDC Manufacturing Insights.
