IDC Manufacturing Insights recently conducted a worldwide study of over 375 enterprises, across multiple discrete manufacturing sectors covering 12 countries, on behalf of Informix.

The survey showed that:

  • Complexity is dramatically growing, with market, operational aspects, and IT the main business areas that will grow significantly in complexity over the next three years. To beat complexity, manufacturers will need to improve and speed up their decision-making capability.
  • Ineffective or inadequate IT is emerging as the single most critical barrier to mastering complexity. Discrete manufacturers also recognize that their current ERP systems have a number of limitations or weaknesses that hamper their ability to improve decision making.

Other findings were that:

  • Modernizing IT architectures and business applications used to support new, customer-driven operating models is a priority for companies across all industry segments. Manufacturers now have the opportunity to simplify IT architectures by leveraging the four IT forces of mobility, social technologies, big data analytics, and cloud computing. We believe that those companies that are currently investing aggressively in these four areas will soon enjoy the benefits of higher revenue growth, improved profitability, and customer-led innovation.
  • New, enterprisewide "operational ERP" is needed as opposed to mere "financial ERP." Operational ERP will encapsulate the most critical operational processes — customer order management, manufacturing operations management, and supply chain execution — in a tight, integrated, and coordinated environment based on the four IT forces.
  • Manufacturers may be in for a shock when it comes to managing this IT change. They will realize that past investments in traditional technologies are now rapidly becoming redundant.
