Intelligent Devices & Software: The Future of Manufacturing?

The 2013 Application Usage Management survey was conducted by Flexera Software with input from IDC’s Software Pricing and Licensing Research division under the direction of Amy Konary, research vice president - software licensing and provisioning at IDC. This annual research project looks at application usage management trends and best practices. The survey reaches out to executives at application producers (Software vendors and intelligent device manufacturers) and enterprises who use and manage software and devices. This is the first year this survey is being conducted.

Based on this Application Usage Management survey, it is clear that device manufacturers are moving to the intelligent device model for a variety of reasons – to react quicker to changing market needs, reduce time to market for creating new products and product enhancements and reduce costs.
