Business Strategy: Mobile in Manufacturing -- Current Investments and Key Considerations for Continued Progress

LONDON, Dec. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:

Business Strategy: Mobile in Manufacturing -- Current Investments and Key Considerations for Continued Progress

This IDC Manufacturing Insights report presents mobility highlights of North American manufacturers that responded to IDC's 2013 Global Technology and Industry Research Organization IT Survey, including the state of mobile initiatives, investments in mobile applications, and mobilized functions. We also present manufacturers with key mobile security and mobile strategy considerations as they allocate mobile investments in the coming years.

Kimberly Knickle, research director, IT Priorities and Strategies for IDC Manufacturing Insights, states, "Maximizing the outcomes of mobile investments is an ongoing challenge. Manufacturers are evaluating and prioritizing among a long list of potential projects, and we expect the coming year to require manufacturers to closely evaluate their mobile strategy. We also believe that future investments in mobile will be in synch with investments in other new technologies, in particular big data and analytics, cloud, and social/collaboration technology. Done right, these investments will enable use cases such as the resilient supply chain, service optimization, and the factory of the future."
