IT and OT will not stay separated forever… 

Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT) both have a long and separate history. Both technologies have developed along separate paths, with different goals and operating in totally different ecosystems. The gap between these two key technologies means that manufacturers and chemical or manufacturing companies are hindered in having access to the information needed to work efficiently and effectively. Lack of the right information at the right time can lead to unreliable results and making the wrong decisions.

An integrated environment…

With the advent of Industrial Internet, smart machines, Internet of Things (IoT) and Advanced Analytics, manufacturers/companies are increasingly taking advantage of the benefits of bringing IT and OT together in an integrated smart environment. You can also benefit if you:

  • Want to use the benefits of Big Data;
  • Want to view the right information at the right time to make better decisions;
  • Want to optimize your business processes;
  • Want to work and produce faster, more efficiently, more sustainably and cheaper;
  • Want to reduce risks;
  • Want to realize shorter lead times for projects.


Digitization, new developments and technologies immediately raise the question of what this means for your company, but also for you as a person. What choices do you have to make in order to stay ahead in your market in the future?

ICT Group is pleased to invite you to this unique workshop to network with experts from the sector, to engage in conversation with colleagues and to actively work on the most important steps to get IT and OT aligned. Participation is free of charge. We will start small. Keep it manageable and compact and start building on a solid foundation. Which specific pilot can you carry out? What challenges do we face? How can we tackle these challenges? What results can you achieve? What is the return on this pilot? And what is next …?

At the end of the morning you will have a business case for one proof of value, a concrete pilot. Something tangible that can be reached in 10 to 20 working days and that you can start the same day with. Take a look at the OrangeNXT (an ICT Group company) website to see how we can do that together with you.

IT is the baby of the business, which revolves around financial data. OT is the engine of the workplace, where productivity and continuity are controlled. Two separate worlds that have to work together to make the organization future-proof. Much efficiency improvement is hidden in better collaboration between IT and OT. In this presentation: the steps needed to get both aligned and practical examples for inspiration to apply in the workshop.
