This IDC study describes the IDC MaturityScape for network transformation services. It identifies the stages, dimensions, outcomes, and actions required for businesses to transform their network operations, organizations, products, and services for success. This study also serves as a guide for business and technology executives to identify areas in need of improvement in support of network transformation. This IDC MaturityScape for network transformation services provides snapshots of the stages of maturity that a business must achieve. This study:
- Describes the IDC MaturityScape framework for network transformation services in terms of how the network and its processes can be transformed, progressing from ad hoc and uncoordinated efforts through an aspirational view of a fully optimized, continually transforming business
- Provides guidance to business and technology executives on the areas in which they need to improve networking competencies
This IDC MaturityScape will enable business and technology leaders to assess their current state and readiness to undertake network transformation as a competitive strategy.
“The IDC MaturityScape for network transformation services provides a view of the breadth of business and IT/networking management issues that encompass the challenge facing leaders who hope to transform how their enterprises leverage networking technologies and associated professional services for competitive advantage, " states Leslie Rosenberg, research director, IDC Network Life-Cycle Services. “This study provides a road map of the stages of maturity that a business must achieve."

This IDC Manufacturing Insights perspective looks briefly at the implications direct-to-consumer (D2C) commerce will have for manufacturers. Although some manufacturers have grown up in a D2C business model, most have not, and it presents some very different challenges. Certainly there are sales and marketing implications, but we’ll leave those to another discussion. There are supply chain implications in moving from a mass-centric business to a customer/consumer-centric business model — essentially moving from an operation that is designed to handle full pallets and full truck loads to one that will have to handle individual units shipped by parcel post. In our research, we have written quite a bit about the challenges this presents for most supply chains and the alternatives available to them. One option, of course, is to outsource D2C operations to a third party. Perhaps a logistics service provider or a retailer like Amazon. We have seen manufacturers testing both approaches. A somewhat more provocative approach would be to fundamentally rethink the fulfillment (and partly factory) network from today’s large, centrally located warehouses to a network of micrologistics facilities. We touched on this notion in our 2016 supply chain predictions and fleshed it out in the IDC PlanScape: Implementing a Micrologistics Network — The Evolution of Supply Chain Fulfillment (IDC #256929, June 2015). It’s fair to note that reimagining the fulfillment network is not for the fainthearted, and a network more conducive to D2C trade may be more likely to be owned by a third party.
