MANUFACTURING EXCELLENCE: IT/OT CONVERGENCE IS KEY
The top challenge manufacturers face when creating an IIoT environment is the integration of Information and Operational Technology. For the most part, these two departments have existed and operated in very different aspects of a company’s infrastructure. But bridging this divide is essential for success that is both repeatable and scalable. Advances in technologies such as machine-to-machine communication, data analytics, and sophisticated IoT sensors and actuators allow the digital information world to see, understand, and influence the physical operational world. This in turn helps facilities improve their operational efficiencies, reduce operating costs, improve machine and personnel safety, and maximize performance levels.NOT SURE WHERE TO START?
When implemented correctly, digital enablement and IT/OT convergence merge processes, insights, and controls into one cohesive system, providing key insights and telemetry of your manufacturing process.
Digital transformation drives value through shared information, insights, and data-driven analytics. When your team has access to reliable, curated asset information, they can see the bigger picture, giving them the confidence to make fast, accurate decisions.
Many manufacturers are seeing an increase in cyber-related incidents. From ransomware to business email and more, the question isn’t IF it will happen, but WHEN. Bolstering your defenses and educating your employees are key to surviving a cyber attack.
