In this report, Technavio highlights the integration of information and operational technologies as one of the key emerging trends in the global industrial automation device manager software market:
Integration of information and operational technologies
Information technology (IT) is responsible for organizational-level information involving backhand operations while operations technology (OT) is responsible for monitoring and maintenance at the plant level. At present, factors such as the ever-increasing complexity of managing distribution networks are fostering industrial facilities to look for enhanced methods to optimize their systems such as incorporating real-time weather information into distributed generation management and automated, rule-based control of assets.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for automation research, “The convergence of IT and OT to form a single network provides decision-makers access to real-time data connectivity and information sharing, thereby enabling them to link all their resources such as suppliers, employees, plant assets, processes, and customers, which consequently increases their efficiency and responsiveness.”
With the convergence of these two technologies, organizations can monitor plant performance in real time and ensure that this information access is available to all, right from senior management to shop floor employees. This convergence helps to keep every employee in the organization on the same page. Production schedule can be better aligned with customer demand or supplier performance.
