IT OT Convergence in the Industrial Internet
IT OT convergence is actually here today because the technology is already there. We have smart devices connected to network bringing back data. IT software running inside those operational devices so we already have the convergence on the technology side, but we don't have is convergence on the operations side, and on the people site. IT OT convergence is more than just IT and operational. You need IT, Telecom technology and Operating Technology to be balance to drive business outcomes. What IT OT convergence does is that it actually creates big data, and big data is actually the problem, so you need a solution to solve this big data problem. IT OT convergence can be solved, but you need to have the right technology, right people, and right organizational structures to support IT, OT, and communications.
