Global Information Inc. would like to present a new market research report, "Business Strategy: Adoption and Investments of Mobility Applications in the Western European Manufacturing Industry" by IDC Manufacturing Insights.
In a recent survey of mobile applications conducted across Western Europe, IDC Manufacturing Insights found that CRM is the most mobilized business application in manufacturing, with over 35% manufacturers already mobilizing their CRM applications.
According to IDC, smart devices, which provide an exploding array of user features, are considered one of the key drivers to mobility in the slowest-growing markets in Western Europe. The accelerating pace of business is deeply affecting how manufacturers operate. They have to become more integrated, faster, and more nimble, and IT departments are increasingly required to support this transformation.
IDC Manufacturing Insights recent research shows that one issue for manufacturers is that information is often available on their systems but is not readily accessible. As the information is currently available in silos around the company and across departments, functional areas, and hierarchical levels, manufacturers are changing their organizational structures and empowering employees with IT systems, enabling real-time access to information. Mobile devices and applications are key tools for manufacturers to create an information-based collaborative decision-making environment and to open lines of communication.
"Historically, the main priority of CIOs has been to establish the necessary technological platform to deliver mobile services and to efficiently manage the exploding number of devices across the enterprise," said Lorenzo Veronesi, EMEA research analyst, IDC Manufacturing Insights. "Companies are now taking the next step, and we see growing interest in extending on-premises corporate applications to mobile devices." The report focuses on deployment of mobile applications in manufacturing organizations and future developments that will shape adoption trends.
