Business Strategy: 2012 Supply Chain Survey Results and Insights
This IDC Manufacturing Insights report looks at the results from a recently completed supply chain survey. The survey asked 355 respondents about the primary focus for their supply chain, top organizational priorities and the activities that would drive those priorities. We continue to be bullish about the manufacturing industry, the critical role that the supply chain plays, and the role of IT application tools as a way to both solve business challenges and achieve goals.
According to Simon Ellis, practice director for Supply Chain Strategies, "The past three years have taught us much about what it takes to be successful in turbulent times and the degree to which supply chain modernization and IT capability development have proven themselves in the fray."
