Engage with IDC Industry Analysts

The rapidly growing market for robotics continues to attract new entrants as both demand for high quality robots increases and the technology to deliver robotics improves. The latest company to announce entry into the space is Sharp. Sharp has introduced a new division focused on robotics, Sharp Robotics Business Development (SRBD), and has come to market with its first offering focused in the field of security. The Intellos Automated Unmanned Ground Vehicle (A-UGV) is a rugged mobile robot designed to augment security staff with an abundance of sensors, cameras, and the capability to traverse rugged terrain.


I had the opportunity to participate in a roundtable session on enterprise security at the IDC Digital Summit in New Delhi, India just about one month ago. I left the energetic discussion thinking about what security means to innovation.


This blog highlights a recent IDC PeerScape on Field Service Transformation in Manufacturing, offering five key practices that manufacturers can adopt to escalate their efforts to build customer centricity across the customer and service lifecycles.


After participating in last week's IDC Digital Summit in Delhi, India, speaking with many of the executive attendees from a variety of companies, it's clear that digital transformation (DX) is a worldwide phenomenon, 3rd platform technology use is growing, and innovation across products and services is evolving.


In June 2016, IDC's Manufacturing Insights team hosted a third interactive conference in Prague, the Czech Republic, entitled Driving Competitiveness in Manufacturing: How to be a part of Industry 4.0. The audience was comprised of 71 delegates from Czech and Slovak manufacturing companies and specialized IT vendors and IT service providers with a strong Industry 4.0 value proposition. Before and during the event, we fielded a short event survey among participants. We collected a total of 24 responses, and I would like to share some insights derived from this data.
