The IT/OT Divide: Implications for the Asia/Pacific (Excluding Japan) Internet of Things Industry

Authors: Shaily Shah, Hugh Ujhazy
Abstract

As IoT connects systems, platforms, devices, and networks together, enterprises across industry verticals, including energy, utilities, mining, and manufacturing, are increasingly recognizing the importance of aligning technology platforms to better operate and manage the execution of production tasks.

This document explores the convergence of IT and OT and the resulting implications on IoT in APEJ. It delves into technological and cultural aspects of both organizations with insights into some of the challenges and opportunities faced by industry leaders in this space. Though IT/OT convergence will bring clear advantages to companies, including cost and risk reductions, as well as enhanced performance and gains in flexibility, it is not without risk and must therefore be managed as carefully as any enterprisewide digital transformation project.
