Engage with IDC Industry Analysts

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.


The autonomous car world has buzzed with the recent announcements of crashes and a fatality related to the semi-autonomous Tesla Model S. This comes at a time when regulatory efforts surrounding autonomous vehicle operations in the U.S. are pushing decisions from Washington D.C. over standardization of technology to encourage faster evolution of autonomous cars.


The time has come for connected enterprise quality management (EQM) — a pervasive, cross-enterprise, and integrated approach to quality management. Quality is too critical an initiative, according to our survey data and conversations with manufacturers, to be kept in its own silo, separate from design, engineering, supply chain, and manufacturing.
