Finding IoT Success Through Folding IT and OT Together

By

In a recent webinar produced in partnership between Microland and IoT Evolution, attendees heard from presenter Christopher Collins, Senior Director, IIoT, Microland, about how companies can build, deploy and manage robust IIoT solutions by pairing the resources of both IT and OT within the enterprise. 

Gartner recenlty reported research by Cisco indicating that 65 percent of enterprises will adopt IoT products by 2020, while almost 64 percent of them claim to have failures. The greatest challenge for a successful Industrial IoT deployment is IT-OT convergence, assets Microland. The key to a successful IoT implementation lies in the alignment of IT and business goals. Identifying the OT goals is crucial for tangible IIoT benefits. In the webinar, the speaker outlines processes for doing just that.

IT-OT convergence means using data-centric IT computing for data collected from the OT systems. IIoT enables centralized data monitoring and analytics for generating actionable insights. Hence, for a successful IIoT implementation, IT and OT skillsets need to work in tandem. The real benefits for a successful IIoT implementation are derived from analyzing the large amounts of data collected from the OT systems, correlating that to the data from the IT systems and devising strategy basis the patterns and insights generated from this large pool of data.

Viewers will learn:

  • Major challenges faced during large scale IIoT deployments
  • Benefits of an integrated IT-OT approach aligned to the business objectives
  • How Microland can help organizations realize their IIoT goals

Who should watch:

  • CXOs driving digital transformation through industrial IoT
  • COOs and other operations leadership (such as plant managers and asset managers) familiar with plant and business operations, and understand where many of the data sources exist
