Summary
 

 Modern manufacturing across the globe will increasingly rely on a combination of technologies such as big data, analytics, 3D printing, and Nano technology during the next era of global growth and innovation. Despite the uncertain global economic conditions, manufacturers are expected to make steady investments in 2015, primarily driven by the need for productivity improvements.
 
 Key Findings
 

 - Kables survey of 176 manufacturers finds that they are allocating a major portion of their ICT budgets collectively to hardware, software, and IT services. The need for innovation and increasing customer demands are further pushing manufacturers to invest in these core ICT segments.
 
 - Inclination towards various cloud computing models is prominent among manufacturers, stemming from the increasing number of enterprises either investing or planning to invest in different cloud computing solutions in the coming two years.
 
 - Moreover, the growing requirement of manufacturers to look for actionable data to differentiate themselves in the marketplace has created significant demand for business intelligence suites.
