Convergence of IT and OT is about systems, standards and a new way of thinking.
This IT/OT convergence is often a challenge. It is not just a challenge because of new and exciting technologies but also because of new ways of thinking. This tends to be even a bigger challenge when two different worlds , that have worked separately and with completely different systems, technologies and vendors, must integrate in the context of IIoT and the Industrial Internet.
In this comprehensive non-technical workshop, the participant will be presented with background on the IT/OT convergence challenge. We will then discuss the reasons why it is a must for organization.
Throughout the workshop related subjects will be explained, like Smart manufacturing & Industry 4.0, (I)IoT, cyber-physical systems, cyber-security and standardization (ISA-95), as these are part of the reason why this convergence is a must.
Finally, the Center of Excellence (CoE) concept will be introduced. This will include the needed governance structure. Case studies following journey of other companies will be presented and discussed.
