Europese fabrikanten omarmen de cloud om hun flexibiliteit te verbeteren

ISG Provider Lens™-rapport ziet dat fabrikanten de cloud gebruiken om digitale marketing te verbeteren en direct-to-consumer bedrijfsmodellen mogelijk te maken

FRANKFURT, Duitsland–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Europese productiebedrijven omarmen cloudgebaseerde technologieën en diensten om hun go-to-market-plannen te versnellen en digitale marketinginspanningen te verbeteren, volgens een nieuw rapport dat vandaag is gepubliceerd door Information Services Group (ISG) (Nasdaq: III), een toonaangevend wereldwijd technologisch onderzoeks- en adviesbureau.

Volgens het 2021 ISG Provider Lens™ Manufacturing Industry Services Report voor Europa kijken fabrikanten op het continent ook naar de cloud om direct-to-consumer bedrijfsmodellen mogelijk te maken.

“Fabrikanten in Europa wenden zich tot de cloud om hun zakelijke flexibiliteit te vergroten”, zegt Christian Decker, EMEA-partner van ISG Smart Manufacturing. “En ze wenden zich tot leveranciers van productiediensten om hen te helpen nieuwe referentiearchitecturen te creëren en hun activiteiten veerkrachtiger te maken.”

European Manufacturers Embrace the Cloud to Improve Their Agility

ISG Provider Lens™ report sees manufacturers using the cloud to improve digital marketing and enable direct-to-consumer business models

FRANKFURT, Germany–(BUSINESS WIRE)– European manufacturing firms are embracing cloud-based technologies and services to accelerate their go-to-market plans and improve digital marketing efforts, according to a new report published today by Information Services Group (ISG) (Nasdaq: III), a leading global technology research and advisory firm.

The 2021 ISG Provider Lens™ Manufacturing Industry Services Report for Europe finds manufacturers on the continent also looking to the cloud to enable direct-to-consumer business models.

“Manufacturers in Europe are turning to the cloud to increase their business agility,” said Christian Decker, EMEA partner, ISG Smart Manufacturing. “And they are turning to manufacturing services providers to help them create new reference architectures and bring resiliency to their operations.”

In addition, manufacturing firms want service providers to help them establish robust configuration management databases and leverage automated testing, including shift-left techniques, the report says.

The report also sees the manufacturing industry in Europe looking to revamp its supply chain infrastructure by using predictive models. Manufacturers are looking for more transparency into their supply chains following shortages caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. In some cases, companies are using AI for client or customer forecasts.

A chip shortage across all industries, meanwhile, is a challenge for the European automotive industry, which uses older chip designs, the report says. Fabrication facilities (fabs) are available for 3 and 5nm nodes, which are applicable for servers and mobile and laptop processors, but there’s a shortage of 28, 40 and 65nm fabs to make chips used by automakers.

Most of the new fab investments are directed towards new nodes and there is an ever-increasing demand from medical, industrial, and automotive verticals. The automotive industry may face chip shortages until 2023, when it may begin using more high-performance parts.

Another trend among automakers in Europe is a focus making more electric vehicles, the report says. Automobile manufacturers are working to scale up their electric vehicle infrastructure, which is now taking precedence over autonomous driving technologies. Many auto manufacturers in Europe have announced plans to end sales of gas-powered vehicles, but they face several challenges before realizing these ambitions.

Manufacturers of industrial and off-highway vehicles, meanwhile, are looking for ways to optimize their outputs, the report says. Many of these companies are focused on integrating their manufacturing shopfloors across agriculture, construction and heavy vehicles. They are also integrating many layers of automation.

The report also sees many European manufacturers looking for custom application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) instead of traditional, complex processes and systems on chips. With the rapid adoption of the IoT and edge computing, companies are integrating multiple sensors on the edge to deliver powerful and intelligent end-to-end systems. Even mid-sized companies are considering developing their own custom ASICs.

In response, service providers have evolved their offerings from conventional design and validation to multiple stages of ASICs. Some service providers are developing smaller and less complex ASICs through turnkey development engagements for clients that are new to this space.

The 2021 ISG Provider Lens™ Manufacturing Industry Services Report for Europe evaluates the capabilities of 41 providers across three quadrants: Digital Engineering – Transportation, Digital Engineering – High Tech, and Digital Engineering – Industrial.

The report names Capgemini, HCL and Wipro as Leaders in all three quadrants. Bertrandt, LTTS, TCS and Tech Mahindra are named Leaders in two quadrants, and AKKA, Alten, eInfochips, IAV, Infosys and UST are named Leaders in one.

In addition, Caresoft Global, IAV, Ignitarium and LTTS were named Rising Stars—companies with “promising portfolios” and “high future potential” by ISG’s definition—in one quadrant.

A customized version of the report is available from LTTS.
