Macola recently commissioned a survey of manufacturing and distribution professionals in the US regarding the factors that were driving business and technology strategies (Manufacturing & Wholesale Distribution: 2017 Business & Technology Trend Reports).
One of the first questions in our survey was, “What is the biggest external driver of change?”, and offered the following choices:
- pending regulatory changes on trade
- rising e-commerce usage
- mergers and acquisitions
- advances in technology
- infrastructure improvements
The top answer was decisive—over 70% chose emerging tech and IT innovations.
