We've already shared IDC's forecast that 40% of all ICT spend (IT and unified communications) will be driven by 3rd platform technologies – big data, cloud, mobile, and social - by 2020, up from just 22% of ICT spend today. As manufacturers make that transition and adopt these new technologies, IDC Manufacturing Insights is identifying use cases, best practices, lessons learned, and how IT suppliers' offerings map to manufacturers' requirements. While these are important, we also believe manufacturers need to take a long-term view to how these technologies are going to change their IT portfolio and how IT and business groups work together. In this blog, I share some highlights of our research, new reports, and an upcoming webcast on these topics.
