What is Operational Technology (OT)?
Operational technology includes the data acquisition system, control systems and industrial networks found at the “edge” of many industrial and manufacturing organisations. These sophisticated OT devices capture, analyse and take action in real time.
What is converged OT + IT?
Physical systems convergence of OT and IT brings together OT capabilities with enterprise-class IT capabilities in a single system and deploys them at industrial and manufacturing edges, delivering significant business benefits including space savings, energy savings, higher performance and lower operating costs.
What are the challenges of converged OT+IT?
Implementing a converged OT+IT system from scratch can be complex. Determining the right combination of tested and supported OT hardware components and the correct operating systems, firmware, drivers and management tools is, at best, time-consuming and can be challenging when problems arise during configuration and deployment. A well-integrated, all-in-one converged system can simplify and expedite converged OT+IT setup.
