What makes this report unique and essential to read?
Kable Global ICT Intelligence has invested significant resources in order to interview CIOs and IT managers about their IT Budgets. Very few IT analyst houses will have interviewed 160+ ICT decision makers in the manufacturing industry in H2 2012.
ReasonsToBuy
Technology expenditure amongst manufacturers is being driven by their need to improve efficiency and quality through the adoption of technologies such as computer aided manufacturing (CAM) and computer aided design (CAD).

In addition to spending on in-house data centres, manufacturers are looking to outsource their data centre operations as they offer considerable advantages, such as cost reduction and ease of management.

According to Kables survey, manufacturers are spending the highest proportion of their ICT budgets on internal development and maintenance in 2012 and 2013, primarily to strengthen their in-house project development capabilities, support innovation, and increase transparency.

A considerable portion of IT consulting budgets is also being channelled to training, education and other consulting, since it is important for manufacturers IT staff to have the necessary skills and knowledge required for the smooth running of their operations.

Due to the diversified geographic coverage of manufacturers, telecommunications assumes an important role in bringing down costs and increasing connectivity and collaboration across various manufacturing units and other functional areas.
