Traditionally, information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) are managed as siloed domains necessitating segregated technology stacks and conventions, standards and paradigms, and governance structures. The underlying technology of OT systems, spanning communications, platforms, software, and security is swiftly beginning to resemble IT systems. Coupled with the emergence of disruptive technologies and evolving business processes, the need to establish integrated enterprise policies accommodating OT and IT solutions with processes for harmonizing data modeling and semantics is greater than ever. Within a truly integrated IT/OT environment, it is possible to institutionalize a data driven value chain to better convert real time data into actionable intelligence, identify high-impact use cases, derive quick wins and initiate further optimization based on hard facts.
