Infosys surveyed 157 executives from Manufacturing companies with over US$ 1 billion in revenues across the United States, Europe, Australia and New Zealand (ANZ). The respondents were senior executives and leaders involved in cloud initiatives representing both technology and business functions.
The survey was aimed at understanding the cloud initiatives for Manufacturing companies. Some interesting findings from this survey:
- Manufacturers expect operational outcomes from their cloud programs such as a standardized and integrated technology landscape, reduced time to market, and enhanced enterprise‑wide mobility and collaboration.
- The top three concerns expressed by manufacturers before starting cloud programs are deciding the right cloud approach (53 percent), stakeholder confidence around return on investment (46 percent) and significant reliance on external solutions providers (45 percent).
