Bridging the IT/OT Gap

Systems integrators live IT/OT convergence every day. It is in the DNA of companies like ours. So we know how important it is for our clients to take advantage of the synergies between information technology (IT) and operations technology (OT) in order to ensure that their plant floor systems are protected. Within an organization, it is not unusual for the lines of communication between IT and OT to be strained, with each side ignoring the other or believing that they are an obstacle to work around. To improve performance on the plant floor and reduce your operational risks, these two groups need to be in sync. Your system integrator can help bridge that gap and begin to lay the groundwork to make that happen.
