The IT and OT Convergence: New Benefits and Considerations
2020 was an eye-opening year for a lot of organizations and practically every single industry. Leaders in the technology and business space saw the clear benefits of working with modern technologies to stay relevant in an ever more connected and digital economy. Like manufacturing and industrial environments, some industries saw 2020 as a moment to step back and understand their limitations and what they could do to reinvent their business and their go-to-market strategies.
Much of that planning revolves around using new technologies to stay relevant in a digital market while still improving control systems, data acquisition, and other vital processes. These leaders are working to integrate, collect, aggregate, and synchronize mission-critical data. However, to become a truly integrated organization, businesses and technology professionals must look at the crossroads between IT and OT.
A recent IDC study indicated that by 2022, strategic partnerships would be formed between 40% of market-leading IT and OT vendors to deliver a holistic solution, reducing integration and deployment costs by 20%. To become a more relevant part of a digital economy, IT and OT convergence must become a reality. And, unlike previous years, the benefits and new considerations around IT and OT convergence are fundamentally different today.
This report will demonstrate the latest benefits in IT and OT convergence and how these solutions impact modern organizations and the digital economy.
