Plant Data and Connectivity: The Building Blocks for Industrial Transformation
Recent technology innovations have made IT/OT convergence a necessity and a reality, but complexities arise from a short-term view of plant data and connectivity needs. Operational technology (OT) users can mitigate this by working collaboratively with information technology (IT) to develop an implementation plan that addresses complexities and limitations for a positive future outlook.
- Results of research on trends driving IT/OT convergence
- Methods of mitigating wasted time and resources due to a short-term view of connectivity
- Common limitations in a broader scale industrial transformation and benefits of developing a longer term, strategic view.
