Driving digital transformation with IT and OT convergence
Manufacturers are under constant pressure to increase automation, lower costs, and leverage smart manufacturing. But, in doing so, they face multiple challenges. These include scaling their digitalization initiatives, bridging data silos, and future-proofing systems. These goals require greater integration of data between what is commonly known as information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT). This research byte outlines what manufacturers should do to integrate IT and OT to reap the full benefits of digital transformation. We also highlight one services firm, Hitachi Vantara, as an example of a service provider addressing this emerging need through its set of products and services for IT and OT convergence.
