What sort of information can you get from surveying MES users about their experience in choosing, implementing and using Manufacturing Execution Systems? For the past five years, Gartner, Inc. and MESA International have been delving into this topic and generating best practices and strategies for MES practitioners and users, including the adoption of Enterprise MES, the importance of MES Centers of Excellence,  the trend toward using MES data for supply chain collaboration and the inexorable rise in hybrid cloud deployments on the horizon.

These are exciting times, with an increasing focus on cloud-based deployment options, mobility, data analytics and the Internet of Things (IoT) all impacting MES. But, how are they impacting the business value of MES?
