White paper:

Everything you need to know about IT/OT Convergence

Executive Summary

IT OT convergence is catalyzed by advances in technologies such as the internet of things (IoT), Big Data analytics and machine-to-machine communication.IoT includes an assortment of sensors that can gather real-world conditions (temperature, pressure, chemical compositions) and an array of actuators capable of translating digital commands and instructions into physical actions (controlling valves, moving mechanisms).For an enterprise to take advantage of all the information from manufacturing or process operations requires the connection between a domain where data is generated (OT) and a domain where data is consumed (IT).

IT OT convergence can merge business processes, insights, and controls into a single uniform environment if implemented correctly; exhibiting improved efficiency, reduced errors and enhanced workflows which provide businesses with a significant competitive advantage.
