Proprietary study reveals benefits of embracing disruptive technology vs. risks of waiting.
A recent survey of more than 400 technology decision makers across 13 industries indicates that early adoption of disruptive technology is seen as less risky than waiting. Across all industries, including among technology leaders in Automotive, there was near consensus that adopting disruptive technology has become the price of doing business and staying in business.
"The automotive industry is changing slower than it ever will and faster than it ever has. And customer demands are evolving at speeds never seen before.
For companies serious about innovating at scale and transforming their business in order to dominate their market, it will take innovative thinking, disruptive technology and near flawless execution. This challenge, perhaps best described as the perfect blend of art and science, is more than achievable, but only if you have the right partner. Which is why we want you to meet Leonardo, by SAP. SAP Leonardo is a digital innovation system that enables organizations of all sizes to transform at scale with minimal risk and disruption. SAP Leonardo brings new technologies and services together to help businesses power their digital transformation.
SAP Leonardo proves that truly transformative and sustainable innovation happens when technology, people, and data are combined."

For manufacturers, this IDC white paper examines the current and
future Internet of Things (IoT) imperative for the following discrete manufacturing industries: automotive, aerospace and defense, high tech, and industrial machinery. We highlight IoT-enabled scenarios — those possible both now and in an Industry 4.0 future with smart manufacturing. (IDC defines IoT as a network of uniquely identifiable endpoints or “things” that communicate without human interaction using IP connectivity.) These scenarios more tightly integrate “things” with other information, processes, and even value chains. Further, we demonstrate how companies in these industries leverage technology to create business value today and disruptive opportunities tomorrow.
This is an exciting time for the UK’s diverse automotive industry. We’re experiencing rapid growth with many of the world’s leading manufacturers – including the BMW Group, Ford, Jaguar Land Rover, Nissan and Toyota – recognising the business case for investing here. The UK offers one of the lowest labour costs in western Europe, a competitive corporation tax (set to fall to just 17% by 2020) and regulations that support innovation and expansion. Meanwhile, the UK’s geographic location and strong supply and distribution infrastructure makes us a gateway to a customer base throughout Europe and beyond.

In today’s market, discrete manufacturers must stay focused on traditional objectives — increasing uptime and throughput in the plant and closely managing costs throughout their operations. At the same time, they must also create and offer more integrated products and services and even new business models to enhance the customer experience. These new offerings incorporate increasing amounts of technology — including Internet of Things. Indeed, by 2018, nearly one-third of industry leaders will be disrupted by competitors that are digitally-enabled. For manufacturers, this IDC white paper examines the current and future Internet of Things (IoT) imperative for the following discrete manufacturing industries: automotive, aerospace and defense, high tech, and industrial machinery. We highlight IoT-enabled scenarios — those possible both now and in an Industry 4.0 future with smart manufacturing.
There has been no shortage of high profile recalls over the past several years. Suppliers are being required to provide more robust quality management systems, provide better real-time visablity into manufacturing data, and may even be held accountable for additional charge-back and warranty claims. Take a next generation approach to quality management.
