This IDC Manufacturing Insights blog highlights recent events hosted by Atos, TCS, and Hexaware and the innovative projects these companies are undertaking with manufacturers to build customer centricity.


The PLM market continues to evolve rapidly, due to the product, demand, and market complexity that exists, as well as 3rd Platform Technologies such as cloud. During this evolution over the past 10 years, there has been much discussion around the “democratization” of PLM and product innovation.


Over 190,000 people from all over the World, including President Barack Obama, converged on Hannover, Germany, April 25th through 29th for the 2016 Hannover Messe industrial conference. This years event consisted of over 5,200 exhibitors spread across 17 conference halls broken down into 5 focus areas: Digital Factory, Energy, Industrial Automation, Industrial Supply, and Research & Technology.


Manufacturers are working hard to unlock the value of information that comes from their own operations, partners, customers, suppliers, and social networks. Based on that information, the most advanced can optimize business decisions, predict or guide outcomes, and develop new capabilities and products with sophisticated analysis and embedded intelligence. We've developed the IDC MaturityScape for information digital transformation in manufacturing across five key dimensions:
•Data discovery
•Value development
•Value realization
•Knowledge and collaboration
•Information architecture (IA)


Manufacturers are moving to the next generation of product life-cycle management (PLM), a product innovation platform. How do you plan, evolve, organize, and execute upon this new vision? We've published a series of reports over the past two years that define and detail the value, provide a plan for scoping, and most recently, a roadmap for realizing an extended view of PLM across the enterprise and value chain.
