Investments in new cloud architectures, adoption of sustainable practices, and an ability to adapt to disruption and increase revenue is the goal of decision-makers in the manufacturing industry. According to IDC InfoBrief, manufacturers are increasingly looking for new opportunities to innovate through ecosystem collaboration. This requires a change in mindset by bringing together businesses within the ecosystem to create new business models.


  • Business transformation and ability to adapt is key to success for recovery to the next normal
  • Manufacturing leaders must support processes with disruptive technology that enables agility, efficiency and innovation
  • Managing multiclouds will become part of the next normal and will have a direct and positive impact on profit and revenue
Given ever-changing regulatory and consumer pressures, manufacturers can no longer ignore their impact on the environment or treat it as an afterthought. Companies that treat sustainability as an opportunity – and not a burden – can leverage it to create new and innovative products and processes, and therefore achieve competitive differentiation.
