Key Market Issues The survey reveals that 56 of
manufacturers prefer to procure technologies
directly from suppliers, followed by through
local resellers and national resellers. Kable
believes that local resellers are preferred more
than national resellers in large part due to
their ease of availability, ability to provide
timely support services, and competitive
pricing. In order to respond to global
competitive challenges, manufacturers need to
devise effective IT strategies. The survey shows
that the IT objectives of better demonstrate the
value of IT to the business and use IT to
support revenue growth are the most important
factors influencing manufacturers IT investment
strategies, with average ratings of X on a scale
of 1 to 4.

Due to the current economic uncertainty,
manufacturers have to deal with constrained
budgets, which is forcing the need for an optimum
utilisation of resources. As a consequence,
raising efficiency is considered to be an
important business objective amongst
manufacturers.According to Kables survey,
manufacturers consider price to be the most
important criteria when choosing an ICT
provider.The survey shows that a large
proportion of manufacturers believe that their
ICT infrastructure is somewhat complex, with
several enterprise applications, hardware
manufacturers, operating systems, and
communications technologies. Key
Highlights According to Kables survey, 41 of
manufacturers are planning to raise their ICT
investments in 2013, which is an increase of 7
compared to 2012.

Kables survey shows that 80 of manufacturers
prefer deploying enterprise applications on-site
followed by security and content management, as
these technologies handle confidential data, and
manufacturers want full control over such systems
and solutions.Increasing revenues and customer
satisfaction also play a key role, as
manufacturers are keen to increase their organic
growth and recognise the value of consumer
recognition for their products, since it will
eventually help to increase their sales
lines. According to Kables survey, manufacturers
consider leading-edge technology to be the most
important criteria when choosing an ICT provider
with an average rating of X on a scale of 1 to
4. Manufacturers rate the CIO/IT department and
the CEO as the most influential authorities when
making ICT purchasing decisions, with both
receiving the highest average rating of X on a
scale of 1 to 4.
