This IDC Perspective provides a short-term and long-term view into how manufacturers are currently addressing challenges in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic and our guidance moving forward on where to invest time, budget, and resources across domain.
"Risks, inevitable market changes, and potential disruptions (weather, geopolitical, and pandemic) must be included as part of the collective business, product, and supply chain planning and design process. Modeling various scenarios and effectively planning for them requires the full power of 3rd Platform technologies — cloud, AI/ML, analytics, and so forth — working in concert with upstream IT systems that support sales and customer experience, product development, and supply chain planning and OT systems such as supply chain execution, manufacturing operations, and service execution," said Jeff Hojlo, program director, Product Innovation Strategies at IDC.
