Manufacturers, in discrete and process manufacturing, hybrid cloud usage and plans outpace the global average across many industries. In 2018, the deployment of hybrid clouds in manufacturing and production companies has currently reached 19 percent penetration, slightly ahead of the global average. Moreover, manufacturers plan to more than double their hybrid cloud deployments to 45 percent penetration in two years; outpacing the global average by 4 percent.
But the manufacturing industry remains at an “innovation impasse,” meaning many manufacturers have a desire to innovate and drive transformation, but legacy IT on-premises systems constrain their ability to do so. It is the role for senior executives to focus on new solutions to create value and not only prioritize traditional business operations. This challenge has created a demand for new technology solutions that can help balance the trade-off between current and future goals for manufacturers.
Join Cisco and Microsoft on September 25 to learn how Microsoft Azure Stack has helped manufacturers develop innovative technology solutions that improved their business operations via hybrid cloud deployments. We will present real life case studies from both discrete and Oil and Gas manufacturers that provided these enterprises a fresh approach to modernizing legacy applications and services, and enabling their IT leaders to focus on their long-term investments in big data, IoT, and next-generation enterprise applications
