Real Tools for Digital Transformation


Published on

Whether they refer to it as IIoT, Digital Transformation, or Industry 4.0, companies in every industry are looking for a way to get more from their data. However, most are trying to achieve this with conventional architectures and IT-centric methods. The truth is that without reliable connectivity to their operational data, their plans for building a digital enterprise are bound to fail.

Join experts from Inductive Automation, Cirrus Link Solutions, and Sepasoft for an overview of the platform and tools you need to gather your OT data and facilitate digital transformation.

  13. 13. • Doesn’t account for the knowledge, skill, time and effort required to understand and get access to each customer’s unique OT system • Requires coding on top of operating systems • Doesn’t promote a better OT infrastructure • No clear path from the cloud to OT data Why IT-Led Digital Transformation Doesn’t Work
  14. 14. Solution: OT-Led Digital Transformation • Instead of applying IT solutions to the OT world, apply OT solutions to the IT world • Decouple! Connect devices to infrastructure, not applications. • Provide a “Single Source of Truth” for all tags. • Demonstrate a superior OT solution.
