Roundtable: Digital Operations | The challenge of IT and OT

Challenge us

26 September 2019
9:30 - 14:00

Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT) have a long, isolated history. Both developed along separate paths, with different goals, operating in completely different ecosystems.

The gap between these two critical elements hinders manufacturers and (small) chemical companiesin having necessary information on hand. The lack of proper information at the right time can get translated into wrong decisions and unreliable outputs.

With the advent of the Industrial Internet, smart machines, Internet of Things and  Advanced Analytics, manufacturers have started realizing the benefits of bringing IT and OT together in a connected (smart) setting. Companies need to have a connected factory if they want to:
• Reap the benefits of Big Data;
• Gain information for better decisions;
• Optimize business processes;
• Want to work and produce faster, more efficiently, more sustainably and cheaper;
• Lower risks and shortened project timelines.

Digitalisation, new developments and technologies immediately raise the question of what this means for your company. Do you have to make choices now to stay ahead in your market in the future and if so, which ones? IT and OT won’t remain isolated forever…

ICT Group presents, in cooperation with OrangeNXT and various other companies, this unique chance to network with Industry experts in a small setting at Brightlands Chemelot Campus in Geleen.
