IT/operational technology (OT) convergence is a key enabler of a highly responsive and agile organization. The most challenging aspect of the integration space is to understand how to consolidate the operational data and perform additional analyses enabled through technologies, such as Internet of Things (IoT), big data and analytics (BDA), artificial intelligence (AI), and so forth. This document highlights some of the examples in which organizations achieved higher operational productivity and efficiency by effectively streamlining their data streams.
"The key focus for several organizations is to find a viable way to integrate process data to identify hidden optimization opportunities. The associated implications extend beyond the shop floor and impact organizations' response frameworks regarding value chain disruptions and digital resilience," says Sampath Kumar Venkataswamy, senior research manager, Asia/Pacific Manufacturing Insights.
