Driving IT-OT Alignment in Your IIoT Project

By Ken Briodagh October 21, 2020

On Wed, Nov 4 from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. Eastern, Sierra Wireless will host a webinar with IoT Evolution that will seek to solve one of the hardest challenges in the Industrial IoT.

What makes Industrial IoT (IIoT) projects particularly difficult is the lack of interoperability between Operational Technology (OT) and Information Technology (IT). Given their disparate functions, the two worlds have historically existed in siloes – OT is about the monitoring, control of industrial assets and the acquisition of sensor data, while the IT function is steeped in enterprise systems and cloud applications. With both these worlds using entirely different sets of technologies and tools, it has become critical to bridge the gap between them to ensure a successful IIoT transformation. Click here to register.

Register for the webinar right now to:

  • Find out how all-in-one edge-to-cloud IIoT solutions have made it significantly easier to connect industrial assets to the cloud and bring powerful compute, analytics and application execution capabilities to where OT systems operate
  • Learn how industrial companies can build and scale their IIoT applications at a fraction of the cost and time.
  • Find out how Sierra Wireless Octave­ and Microsoft Azure IoT Central are bridging the gap between OT and IT, and empowering companies to unlock the benefits of the Industrial IoT.
