ICT Group and Cisco recently entered into a partnership to address the rapidly increasing demand for IoT (Internet of Things) applications and further digitization within the industry market segment. This cooperation is a logical sequel to the IoT cooperation between Cisco and Microsoft, as was announced recently. ICT Group’s expertise in the industrial market as well as its knowhow of both Microsoft and Cisco provide an excellent foundation to realize further digitization in this market.
Aart Wegink, Director Digital Transformation ICT Group: “The cooperation is aimed at delivering industry-proven technologies in the industrial market that will realize the integration between the IT and OT domains (operational technology) in a secure and reliable manner.”
“ICT Group is a visionary and an authority in the OT domain. We are very proud that ICT Group is going to work side by side with Cisco to bridge the gap between the IT and OT worlds. This will help our common clients in the utilities, manufacturing and mobility markets to successfully venture into the digital world. The need to break open technological silos to enable efficiency, open access to data and analytics in processes, system performance and cyber security as a business enabler, will unite us into a very promising combination”, says Daan de Groot, Channel Lead Cisco Nederland.
